In addition to their albums as Don’t Stop Or We’ll, Paul Rust and Michael Cassady also wrote songs and performed as the band-within-the-show LOVE on Netflix. They’ve written so much music together in fact, they wanted a faster and easier way to get their songs to listeners. Starting November 11, 2020, every Wednesday they will be debuting a brand new Don’t Stop Or We’ll Die song.

Paul Rust and Michael Cassady met in their home state of Iowa and have been performing together for more than twenty years. In Los Angeles they formed their band Don’t Stop Or We’ll Die, and recorded two EPs and one full length-album with Harris Wittels.That trio were regular performers on the Comedy Bang! Bang! Podcast and at Largo, and UCB in Los Angeles, and played shows at The Echo, The Troubadour, others.

In 2018, Michael and Paul teamed up with previous collaborators Emeen Zarookian (Spirit Kid) and Dan Molad (Chimney, Lucius) who were also dear friends of the late Harris Wittels and produced another full length album, Dazzle Me. In 2019, Don’t Stop Or Well Die toured the east coast and played sold out shows at The Bell House in Brooklyn (550 seats), Great Scott in Boston (250), and PhilaMOCA in Philadelphia (200), performing with producer-musicians Tony Thaxton (Motion City Soundtrack) and Emeen Zarookian (Spirit Kid). In Los Angeles, the quartet headlined sold out shows at The Satellite Lounge, and was support for Motion City Soundtrack at Club Novo.

“Don’t Stop Or We’ll Die proved that funny songs don’t have to suck…the group is just as devoted to the musicality of its surprisingly powerful piano pop melodies as it is to the absurd situations that populate the lyrics.” — William Hughes, Onion A.V. Club

“Dazzle Me, well, dazzles. The group’s sound has expanded beyond their ‘bass, drums, keys’ trio that had been a staple of previous releases… as Harris once said, ‘I just think… motherfuckers wanna laugh’. So let’s take some time for self-care, and laugh with Don’t Stop or We’ll Die.” — George Heftler,
