D-A-D Sign With AFM Records And Reissue Latest Album
March 25, 2013
Danish cult rockers D-A-D have signed a worldwide (except Scandinavia) record deal with AFM Records.
As the first release of their new collaboration, D-A-D’s 2011 studio album ‘Dic.Nii.Lan.Daft.Erd.Ark’ is now available as an extensive ‘Deluxe Edition’, which comes in a 2-CD Digipak format. and includes a 16-track live CD beside the regular album.
The Deluxe Edition of ‘Dic.Nii.Lan.Daft.Erd.Ark’, the band’s eleventh album, includes the regular album and a 16-track live CD. Disc two starts with acoustic versions of recent hits (The Campfire Favorites) chosen by the band and is followed by a selection of live tracks — classics as well as new hits (Home Alive) produced by Nick Foss, who has been responsible for some of the all-time classics of the band. Upon its release, the regular version of ‘Dic.Nii.Lan.Daft.Erd.Ark’ entered the German charts at #97 and the Danish charts at #2.
D-A-D began playing together in the early 1980s in Copenhagen, Denmark, under their original band name Disneyland After Dark. When the group made their international breakthrough in 1989, they had to change the band name to D.A.D. to avoid an impending lawsuit from the Walt Disney Company.
D-A-D released their first EP in 1985 and have now been together for more than twenty-five years, with only one change in the line-up, as Laust Sonne replaced former drummer Peter Lundholm Jensen in 1999. D-A-D’s 10th album ‘Monster Philosophy’ was released in Denmark in November 2008. In 2009 D-A-D celebrated 25 years of rock, by releasing their complete works in a box, ‘The Overmuch Box’.
