DUNIES ARE BACK WITH THE GOOD SHIT…
DUNE RATS are stoked to announce ‘Bullshit’, their brand new single and first new material in two years.‘Bullshit’ was produced by FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper and drops this Friday May 6 through Dune Rats’ very own Ratbag Records/Warner. Pre-orders are available now through all digital retailers.
Getting its first play on triple j’s 2016 last night, ‘Bullshit’ was written while Dune Rats were on the road with FIDLAR across the States and Canada for two months last year, where the seeds of collaboration with Zac Carper began to fertilise. The 27-date tour took them from Denver to Philly to LA and everywhere in between – including an electrifying performance at a sold-out Webster Hall – with Carpertaking the boys from sessions inside an RV on the road to Joshua Tree and culminating in a Melbourne studio.
‘Bullshit’ is a no-nonsense, hooky-as-hell garage rock anthem and an ode to everything Dune Rats hold high: music, touring, parties, meeting rad people and, most of all, their mates – the lords that are by their side through thick and thin. To say ‘Bullshit’ is going to be a new crowd favourite is an understatement, and just in time, too.. Dunies are hitting wheels to the tar with Violent Soho and DZ Deathrays on the EPICLY sold-out 10-date national Waco tour kicking off next week. Get ready to throw those middle fingers high.
It’s been a non-stop ride since Dune Rats released their self-titled debut album in 2014, which Rolling Stone dubbed an “unassuming statement of intent. No bullshit punk done well.” Sold out Australian tours including co-headlining with punk legends Cosmic Psychos, festival slots on Splendour in the Grassand Laneway Festival, 40 shows in Europe and the UK with British rockers The Subways, shows in North America, South Africa and Asia, signing to Dine Alone Records in the US and documenting it all for Dunies TV… now that’s bullshit.
