Have A Nice Life
Sea of Worry

Cheers. Same to you. Have A Nice Life are an industrial doom band worried for all our futures. Their third album sees the duo deep in the Sea of Worry they titled the album after asking themselves the 'what if we all die?' type questions that haunt us all. Their music has a beautiful hazy ebb and flow to it though that does help soothe the listener whilst they worry about everything. 

Have A Nice Life

Enemies List first released 'Deathconsciousness', the project of home recording duo Have a Nice Life (Dan Barrett and Tim Macuga), in 2008. You can't sum this thing up in one genre description alone: it takes on torrid post-punk, Sunn O))) stylised drone, Stars of the Lid-esque ambient, industrial, shoegaze and doom metal, uniting them all around Barrett's deep depression, which was itself disguised in the record's highly-conceptual narrative about the obscure Itlain writer Antiochus -- the record came with a seventy-page booklet about him. Since then, Have a Nice Life have released their second record, 'The Unnatural World', on the Flenser, who have kindly helped them reissue the monolithic 'Deathconsciousness' too: the huge booklet remains, and so does the ridiculously ambitious record it was made for.
