Dune Rats – New single and headline tour announced!


F U C K   I T!

With a one-two sucker punch that beats the word count of the Ramones call to arms Hey Ho, Let’s Go by two words, DUNE RATS new single ‘Fuck It’ is set to become the anthem of a new rock generation!

 Already sounding suspiciously like a classic ‘Fuck It’ storms the barricades and does the business in two minutes flat, leaving even an ADHD affected generation in no doubt that they are indeed in the presence of greatness!

 With nary enough time to catch a breath after their recent national tour of duty with the Bleeding Knees Club, Dune Rats will take ‘Fuck It’ to the streets throughout May in what will be their first ever headline tour. The song also marks the production debut of Last Dinosaurs’ front person (and part time Dune Rats bassist) Sean Caskey.

 The ‘Fuck It’ tour will be as short and as perfectly formed as the song itself…a shambolic and fun fuelled five-date adventure through CoolangattaBrisbaneSydneyMelbourne and Adelaide intent on mobilising the hordes of Dune Rats fans left unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed in the wake of their previous shows with Bleeding Knees Club and international hipsters such as The DrumsCultsAriel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and Best Coast.

A halcyon call to arms it encapsulates all that has been good about rock&roll since 1976 – from the heady days of punk rock through to the fuzz-pop sounds of the UK in the mid-eighties, the slacker ideals of Pavement and the raw energy of Nirvana.

‘Fuck It’ will be released on Monday 7 May and is the lead song from the bands upcoming EP due for release in June.
