DZ Deathrays announce new album ‘R.I.F.F’

The Aussies will also launch their brand new record label, DZ Worldwide.

Dance-punk trio DZ Deathrays have announced their latest album, ‘R.I.F.F’, as well as a fresh new single, ‘Tuff Luck’. Two years on since their last album, 2021’s ‘Positive Rising’, DZ Deathrays will release ‘R.I.F.F’, or ‘Remember It’s For Fun’, on 2nd June. They’ve also launched their own record label, DZ Worldwide, which ‘R.I.F.F.’ will be released under. Lead vocalist Shane Parsons says about ‘Tuff Luck’: “I’ve always been the type of musician who loves to jam as many ideas into a song as possible but on this one, I wanted to challenge myself and focus on one bassline and work as many lyric ideas around that one idea as possible.” “It’s weird you can have fun saying that we have royally fucked up. The drums in this song are some of the best on the album, chopped it up alongside samples and treated them with different effects depending on where they came from.” Watch the official video for ‘Tuff Luck’ below: He also shared some more details about the album: “It feels amazing to finally be able to announce that our new album R.I.F.F is going to be released. This album has been a different approach to recording for us, using multiple studios and bedrooms split across Brisbane and Sydney.” “We really took our time with this album, reworking songs along the way making it the longest recording process we have ever done, close to 2 years. What it’s ended up as is one of our most raucous and fun records yet revisiting some of the flavours of Bloody Lovely whilst adding a new style of production for us.” Check out the track list below: TRACKLIST 1.
