What happens when a guy who has the same name as the villain from Die Hard becomes roommates with a punk whose accomplishments include “bouncing around a mosh pit” and finding time to watch every episode of Street Sharks? They form a band, of course! Throw in a surprisingly coherent drummer (he was secretly a college Dean), a songwriting machine bassist with a liberal approach to fashion, manic hardcore tunes, some conspiracy-fueled paranoia, the occasional Harry Belafonte cover, and the result is Hans Gruber and the Die Hards!
Today the Austin-based Punk band has officially released their second LP – aptly entitled 2 – via Paper + Plastick Records. Stream the new songs below and keep checking back for more updates from Paper + Plastick and Hans Gruber and the Die Hards!
