Death By Unga Bunga is a garage rock band from Moss, Norway. The band’s third album, You’re An Animal, was released in September 2013 and combines the energy and rawness of the band’s debut Juvenile Jungle (2010) with the craftsmanship and authenticity of their sophomore album The Kids Are Up To No Good (nominated for a Norwegian Grammy in the Rock category).
The band honors the heritage of 60s and 70s’ artists, mixing it with modern influences. The result is a band with knowledge and awareness of their music history, they’re also known as exceptionally good musicians, making Death By Unga Bunga one of the most popular and in-demand live shows in Norway. Since 2010 the band has played hundreds of shows and performed at all of the large festivals in Norway. After long tours in Europe the band is now drawing fans from Italy, Spain, Portugal and Germany.
