Australian 3 piece DUNE RATS have released a new video for ‘Stupid Is As Stupid Does’ feat. K.Flay, which features the band (Danny Beus, Brett Jansch and BC Michaels) and K.Flay romping around Los Angeles for a day together. The single is the lead track taken from the bands new album Hurry Up And Wait, which is out this Friday 31st January via BMG. The band will also be in a live session for Radio 1 this coming Sunday the 2nd Feb, for the Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P Carter (which you can listen to live on R1 or online afterwards – HERE).
Out this Friday, Hurry Up And Wait is the third full-length from DUNE RATS and the follow up to their critically acclaimed #1 ARIA album The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit.
Working alongside producer James Tidwell (Violent Soho), engineer Mitch Kenny, producer/songwriter Miro Mackie (Mallrat, HEALTH, St. Vincent) and mixer Mike Green, the album sees the trio create their cleanest and most mature release to date – honing in on their beloved brand of raucous, anthemic 90s skate-punk. Previous singles “Crazy” and “No Plans” saw love globally at radio with support from Triple J, BBC’s Dan Carter, Radio X playlist , SiriusXM’s Faction and more. The band are also profiled as the cover stars of the February issue of Upset Magazine, out now.
Of the album, drummer and backing vocalist BC Michaels says: “This is our favourite album we’ve ever made. It took a few years to get it together but we got to go to a bunch of cool places and we are super proud of it. We’d be stoked if other people like it as much as us.”
In addition to the new track, DUNE RATS have plotted their return to North America this May with a new set of tour dates supporting their new album Hurry Up And Wait . Kicking off with a Canadian headlining run on May 5th, the band will join up with Millencolin & A Wilhelm Scream for an East Coast run and The Flatliners for a West Coast run. The North American dates follow the band’s biggest Australian tour to date this March which has largely sold-out.
