On September 7th 2009, HEALTH answer the call and return with their second album GET COLOR (their first one for City Slang via Cooperative).
Recorded in an especially gnarly part of Lincoln Heights, LA, GET COLOR is an exuberant proclamation of noise, rock and electronic splendour. The record is a celebration of sound; pretty, harsh, soft and basked in a blanket of ethereal vocals. GET COLOR is the manifesto HEALTH have been promising since their inception.
HEALTH are the new frontier of noise rock. Formed in 2005, HEALTH self-recorded their debut album over the course of 9 months at Los Angeles D.I.Y. venue The Smell, birthing an urgent and extraordinary album which seethed with ghostly, epic pop and spurts of chaotic noise. The band’s shows grew wilder; kids danced & moshed; blogs freaked out; critics raved and everyone wondered how in God's name HEALTH was going to follow it up.
While the anticipation continued to build, HEALTH released a critically-acclaimed remix record HEALTH//DISCO, toured with the likes of Crystal Castles, Nine Inch Nails, and Of Montreal and played over 420 shows.
