Australian-based guitar-driven music has for the better part of recent memory been quantified globally by jubilant, sun-dappled rhythms with motifs of desire and infatuation - DZ Deathrays make no such promise, nor will they ever. With over a decade long tenure to their name, the group have long cemented their space in contemporary Australian music as a necessity for doing just the opposite, marked by their ability to consistently churn out innovative call to arms riffage as visceral as they are frenetic.Their mainstay status is marked by an ongoing tally of appearances across every careerbuilding pillar: arena tours supporting Foo Fighters and Biffy Clyro to name a few, multiple international appearances at SXSW, Reading and Leeds amongst headline tours, several Splendour In The Grass, Laneway and Falls Festivals, and ARIA Awards is testament to that fact.

 On their sixth studio album R.I.F.F., arguably their most experimental, enhanced and immediately resonant record yet, is as parabolic sonically and thematically as formative releases by The Killers and The Dandy Warhols on the nostalgic soundtrack of The OC, to Gossip and Yeah Yeah Yeahs coping-via-rampage on Skins. That is not to suggest that DZ Deathrays feel as if they’ve never left high school, but instead illustrative of their place in the zeitgeist - their music and merch found a place side by side with the recent Heartbreak High reboot, indicative of what sees the group continue to endure across a varied following.

DZ speak to the Freaks and Geeks and the Dewey Finn’s in us all, bringing together Dead Heads, 30 somethings and the aspirational next generation all at once, including fans in award winning producer Mark Ronson to rising popstar MAY-A and collaborators in cult-underground rapper NERVE and award-winning vocalists like Ecca Vandal, even a Wiggle. On R.I.F.F. they promise a place to return to whenever, wherever; a forever home just like the classics do. Here they inspire listeners to ignite a passion in themselves to continue to challenge and strive, making sure to always Remember It’s For Fun.
