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/New Zealand, Dine Alone in Canada and Alcopop in the United Kingdom, they have covered a lot of ground over the years including winning an ARIA Award each for their first record Bloodstreams in 2012 and second record Black Rat in 2014.
They’ve done multiple sold out tours of Australia, plus 22 international tours with the likes of Blood Red Shoes, Cerebral Ballzy and Band of Skulls.
They’ve played Reading & Leeds, SXSW, CMJ, CMW and The Great Escape internationally, and Falls Festival, Splendour In The Grass and Laneway at home. They even performed a stadium tour, supporting American rock band, the Foo Fighters.
In 2016 they released two stand-alone singles Blood On My Leather and Pollyanna, which they celebrated with a world tour with good mates Dune Rats.
The following year they shared two tracks from their new record, which saw the single Shred For Summer enter Triple J’s Hottest 100 at number 67 and Total Meltdown almost make it at number 109.
Their new record Bloody Lovely debuted at number four in the ARIA Charts and number one in the Australian album charts.
