hit single 'Fuck The Pain Away', previously only released on a decomposing peach. Put that in your promotional ideas pipe and smoke it.
Commenting on the release, label manager Jack Clothier says: "Finally! The movement that is DITZ have finally put out their first wax cylinder laden full of hits. Five hits to be precise. Hence the name of the EP."
DITZ released their latest single 'Total 90' at the tail-end of 2019 (their first for new label Alcopop! Records) picking up plays from BBC Radio
One, BBC 6music, and scoring an A List addition at Amazing Radio
(hitting #2 in the AR chart), an evening playlist addition at Radio
X new music man John Kennedy, as well as support from The iNewspaper, The Line of Best Fit, DORK Magazine, So Young Magazine, Come Play With Me, VISIONS and more.
The band are most well known for an erratic live show influenced by the hardcore punk and noise rock of the 80s and 90s, which sets them sharply apart from their peers in the UK post-punk scene. As a result, the music the band produce is often obnoxious and urgent, but with an acute sense of dynamic. Vast arrays of guitar effects infuse their punk sound with a more experimental approach, which reaches its freeform apex at the end of the band's live sets.

Since their inception, DITZ have been anything but predictable. The quintet have released music irregularly, starting with a three-track EP in 2016 and then following on with a series of singles beginning in 2018. After the release of the EP, the band played constantly in their hometown and in London, honing their craft and growing together as a unit, waiting almost two years before hitting the studio again to record their follow-up, 'Seeking Arrangement'.
The track attracted the attention of the UK's independent press with features and praise coming from DIY, Loud & Quiet, and So Young Magazine, and DITZ followed up with 'Gayboy', showing a more serious side as they explored the self-perpetuating anger of bigotry.
