Although Promises Promises was released in the States by the same small indie label that handled their self-titled debut, in their native New Zealand Die! Die!

Similarly, in place of Steve Albini, who engineered the debut, Promises Promises is considerably more slickly produced by Shayne Carter, leader of the vintage NZ indie band the Straitjacket Fits. Between these two changes, Promises Promises sounds almost like the work of an entirely different band.

It may be considerably more commercial than their first album, but Promises Promises is, crucially, also much, much better.
