the cd version comes in three different mini lp style packages, all custom die cut and each
limited to 675 copies. baltimore trio double dagger's songs are meant to be experienced, rather than just listened to - either at one of their intense performances or with the volume turned up loud enough to feel it in your gut. their performances have highlighted their hometown baltimore whartscape festivals, upstaged the likes of the jesus lizard and melt banana, and left smouldering rubble around the us and in europe on tours with dan deacon, parts and labor and the deathset. 2009's 'more' album captured that intensity on what their local city paper called the year's best local album. music reviewers have compared double dagger to (in alphabetical order) at the drive in, big black, cop shoot cop, dead kennedys, the fall, fucked up, happy mondays, henry rollins, the hold steady, led zeppelin, les savy fav, new order, nirvana, no age, rites of spring, shellac, steve reich, unwound, the white stripes and the yeah yeah yeahs, among others. while this description is generally apt, double dagger continues to push the boundaries of what some critics have dubbed agit punk, art rock, diy, future shock, hardcore, metallic funk, minimalist punk, post-grunge, post-hardcore, post-pop, postpunk, post-punk, post-rock, or underground music. the 'masks' package is designed by the band's design studio post typography. on thrill jockey.
