“I can’t believe that it’s been 20 years since I started this band back in 1997. I couldn’t be more excited to share this unique package, along with the true / uncensored story of how it all begin. This was something that only a small community of people in NYC were able to share with us, back in the day. To be able to bring this to our fans all across the world 20 years later is surreal for me.. I designed the entire package myself and I went to great lengths to create something that our Die Hard fans would greatly appreciate.”

Next month the band will head out on this fall tour with (hed)p.e. and Ill Niño.
