After having a blast touring together in Australia on Violent Soho’s recent Waco tour, DUNE RATS and DZ DEATHRAYS have decided to step it up a notch and take the party abroad. Late last month, the bands announced their International Disaster Tour Part 1: UK & Europe and now they are thrilled to announce the second part to their International Disaster Tour, which sees them touring the USA & Canada.
No strangers to the global stage, it’s been a non-stop ride since Australia’s favorite stoner pop trio Dune Rats released their self-titled debut album in 2014 (the album was later released in North America in 2015 via Dine Alone Records), which Rolling Stone (Australia) dubbed an “unassuming statement of intent. No bullshit punk done well.” They recently dropped “Bullshit” – their first new single in two years, produced by FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper – together with an expectedly insane music video filmed at a backyard party in Byron Bay. Watch the video for “Bullshit” here.
Dune Rats have had a stunning ascent so far and show no sign of stopping. Since the release of their debut LP, the band has toured relentlessly around the globe, playing to sell-out crowds in Australia and touring alongside genre heavyweights, Cosmic Psychos, The Subways, and FIDLAR, to name a few.
Since releasing their ARIA award-winning record Black Rat in 2014 on Dine Alone Records in Canada, DZ Deathrays have been keeping busy both consistently touring the world and keeping their heads down writing for their forthcoming third LP.
