On September 7th 2009, HEALTH answer the call and return with their second album GET COLOR (their first one for CITY SLANG). Recorded in an especially gnarly part of Lincoln Heights, L.A., GET COLOR is an exuberant proclamation of noise, rock and electronic splendor. The record is a celebration of sound; pretty, harsh, soft and basked in a blanket of ethereal vocals. GET COLOR is the manifesto HEALTH have been promising since their inception.

HEALTH are the new frontier of noise rock. Formed in 2005, HEALTH self-recorded their debut album over the course of 9 months at Los Angeles D.I.Y. venue The Smell, birthing an urgent and extraordinary album which seethed with ghostly, epic pop and spurts of chaotic noise. The band’s shows grew wilder; kids danced & moshed; blogs freaked out; critics raved and everyone wondered how in God’s name HEALTH was going to follow it up.

While the anticipation continued to build, HEALTH released a critically-acclaimed remix record HEALTH//DISCO, toured with the likes of Crystal Castles, Nine Inch Nails, and Of Montreal and played over 420 shows!

In April, HEALTH emerged with their first new single since 2007: “DIE SLOW” received immediate accolades from Pitchfork & NME, with the effects rippling across their DIE SLOW THROUGH EUROPE tour, resulting in a near-riot in Eastern Europe. The song’s infectious fusion of noise and dance was the most fully-formed and undeniably rad piece of music from HEALTH yet. And it only served to rile up their fans more. The new full-length was desperately needed.

NOW is that time. GET COLOR is the record.

“LA’s premier ear-splitters: the purveyors of strangely dancable grind-core… The Future of Noise!” (NME)

“HEALTH’s debut is a brilliant, brutal, fine-tuned dollop of hardcore noise… The band also have a great nose for drama… Seriously impressive” (Uncut)
