Beloved Sydney rockers Died Pretty have released their first-ever live album, Died Pretty Live, which you can order on CD or vinyl from here. They have also announced three exclusive Australian shows to take place this October in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

Died Pretty rocked Sydney’s bursting alternative scene in the early 80s with chaotic, passionate and intense live shows. Their highly regarded 1986 debut album Free Dirt established them internationally, and they began touring Europe and America regularly.

Over the years, constant touring ironed out their once erratic live performances as their continuous flow of recordings expanded their musical boundaries. Their landmark album, 1991's Doughboy Hollow, containing the singles Godbless, D.C, and Sweetheart, achieved wide Australian chart success and is still frequently found in lists of the all-time top Australian albums.

Died Pretty officially disbanded as a full-time entity in 2002. Since then, the classic Doughboy Hollow line-up has occasionally reformed to play special event shows. They performed Doughboy Hollow for the Don’t Look Back classic album series in 2008 - Died Pretty recorded the live album during a 2008 Don’t Look Back gig in Melbourne, followed by Big Day Out performances in 2009 and then 2012's Dig It Up festival. 

In 2016, the band performed at Day On The Green festival, and in 2017, embarked on a co-headline tour with Radio Birdman. In 2021 the band performed a triumphant series of club shows.

The band will be joined by Melbourne’s The Underground Lovers on tour this October - tickets are on sale now.
