The new album from Australia’s arbiters of thrash-party goodness, DZ Deathrays, is available via Dine Alone Records. The duo’s 3rd studio album Bloody Lovely is the hotly anticipated follow-up to ARIA Award-winning Black Rat and is available to purchase and stream HERE

The band’s video for “Total Meltdown” sees the duo become animated characters and embark on a wild night on the town filled with flying skulls, skateboarding “Hulks” and guitars raining from the skies. Watch the video HERE.

With two ARIA wins (“Australia’s Grammys”) under their belt for Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal Album two years running for their 2013 debut Bloodstreams and 2014’s Black Rat (both on Dine Alone Records), the Aussie outfit featuring Shane Parson (vocals/guitar) and Simon Ridley (drums/programming) have produced a song that is rambunctious, loud and undeniably fun. Seeing its first glimmer of light as a riff during pre-production for standalone single ‘Blood On My Leather’ in early 2016, the idea kept popping up according to Parsons, “It took about 6 attempts at a chorus until we came up with what it is now, which is why the lyrics in the chorus have nothing to do with those in the verse. It’s a little disjointed lyrically but it’s become a big anthem of the new record and a favourite of ours!”
Bloody Lovely is the DZ Deathrays expanded universe: the perfect amalgamation of all that has come before it, but kicking in the afterburners, and shooting into the stratosphere as we all hold on for dear life. Named for a perfectly Australian turn of phrase (favoured by the father of Parsons’ girlfriend: “it’s brutal and beautiful, and super Aussie”, says Shane) it’s a fully-formed progression from their first two albums Bloodstreams (2012) andBlack Rat (2014).
