Multi-ARIA Award winning Brisbane two-piece DZ Deathrays have come a long way from the first house party gig that they formed for.
Signed to I Oh You in Australia/NZ, Dine Alone in Canada, and Alcopop in the UK, they have made a lot of ground over the years including winning an ARIA Award each for their first record Bloodstreams (2012) and second record Black Rat (2014). They’ve done multiple sold out tours of Australia, they’ve done 22 international tours with the likes of Blood Red Shoes, Cerebral Ballzy, and Band of Skulls. They’ve played Reading & Leeds, SXSW, CMJ, CMW, The Great Escape internationally and Falls Festival, Splendour In The Grass and Laneway at home. They can even add a stadium tour in support of The Foo Fighters to their bucket list.
2016 saw the release of two stand-alone singles ‘Blood On My Leather’ and ‘Pollyanna’ which they celebrated with a world tour with good mates Dune Rats. In 2017 they shared two tracks from their new record which saw the single ‘Shred For Summer’ enter the Hottest 100 at #67 and ‘Total Meltdown’ almost make it at #109.
Their new record ‘Bloody Lovely’ debuted at #4 in the ARIA Charts and number one in the Australian album charts.
