2012 is becoming quite the banner year for DZ Deathrays.

With their inventive clash of punk spirit, garage energy and inventive, wall-bursting noise with a killer live show, they’ve already ensnared the stomping feet and whipping hair of audiences both nationally and overseas.

Having released their debut album Bloodstreams earlier this year to critical acclaim, the duo of Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley have spent their time doing what they do best… tearing up venues with their furious tunes all over the globe.

Having just completed a six-week tour and 30+ shows in North America with Bass Drum of Death (Fat Possum Records), DZ Deathrays are wasting no time and are currently on a plane back to Australia and heading straight to Melbourne to play a sold out show at Corner Hotel on Thursday, before hitting Sydney to play Factory Theatre and finally Adelaide for Spin Off Festival alongside acts like Lana Del Rey, Band of Skulls and Kimbra this weekend.

Following on from these shows, next week the band will be tearing up the main stage of Splendour in the Grass on Friday. Soon after, they’ll be packing their bags once more and heading to the northern hemisphere for the rest of the year. The Brisbane duo looking to conquer the UK, with slots on the prestigious Leed & Reading Fetsivals, as well as slaying the US with two tours with Blood Red Shoes & TRUST, all finishing with a massive British jaunt with Pulled Apart By Horses and Pure Love (Frank Carter of Gallows’ new project).

These upcoming Australian will be the last they pair play until December and are surely not to be missed!
