Feeling a bit camera shy


What sets The Dij apart from boring, tiresome indie bands is their energy. Their live shows are fun and contagious, and so is their songwriting. They've got the best parts of OKGo, Modest Mouse, REM, Beck, Weezer, and Fountains of Wayne in their sound. This tight group continues to ride the wave of regional momentum that their newest release "An EPiphany" has created. The Dij entered Q Division Studios in July to begin work on their newest full length label debut, due out on King Hippo Records in 2005.

The story of the Dij began in 1996 as like-minded charming slackers in high school in Boston. Since then, the band has seen some line-up change, sold out of their independent debut album "Essential Nonsense" and toured New England regularly playing colleges, clubs, halls, and parties. The Dij is on a mission to rock the world's music stage full-time.

With their catchy tunes and energetic shows, the band is now ready for the challenge. The Dij recorded their second release, An EPiphany, in the Fall of 2003 at Q Division in Somerville, MA - featuring "Better Off Without Me" and "Below the Horizon". Their recent signing to King Hippo Records sets up the band to bring their tunes to the masses. Three seasons full of Northeast regional shows, including 2 full houses at the Middle East Downstairs, is a great reminder of the buzz that this band maintains. Recent shows at indie rock clubs like Harper's Ferry, Brother Jimmy's, TT the Bears, and Bill's Bar on Lansdowne have helped to grow the band's fanbase while they anticipate the band's newest release - featuring crowd favorites "Date a Model", "House Arrest", "Unwind", and the beautifully dark cut "Afternoon".
