'Dying To Be There', the 2007 album from Chip K and friends is an incredibly clever, infectious, bold and progressive record that left genre pigeon holing an uncomfortable job. To try and classify the music is to advise that it meanders around the torturous fringes of hip-hop, pop, dance and rock. Let's just settle on the fact that it is good. Real good. The album is here again. Anything new? No. It's a reissue brought abut by Movation now coming under the ICC/Elevation umbrella. If you don't already have this, purchase with complete confidence. From the tender piano intro of "Do Or Die" to the sprawling self-titled gospel-proclaiming closer, this is the same great record from Chip K and the boys.

Product Description
Dying To Be There is thebandwithnoname's third album, being rereleased through ICC in 2009. This album still have huge potential with the band constantly on the road at events and touring schools and youth groups throughout the UK. Musically the album reflects the signature tbwnn style, but moves them on considerably to new creative ground. It features so chipK craziness melted seemlessly into the 'grime' influence brought by Q Kid along with loads more! The package includes a bonus DVD with interview, music, video, live show footage, on the road footage, out-takes and never seen before backstage madness.
