It’s been a dynamite few years for the Dunies. After blowing the lid off the Laneway Festival 2017, their scorching second album ‘The Kids Will Know It’s Bullsh*t’ (produced by FIDLAR’s Zac Carper) took them higher than ever before, scoring the No.1 spot on the ARIA Album charts. Boasting a raw, raucous energy and party punk anthems like ‘Scott Green’ and ‘Bullsh*t’, (33 & 34 Triple J Hottest 100) the Brisbane three-piece belted out a 40+ stop tour of North America & Europe, before returning the steal the show at Splendour In The Grass 2017 and run riot on their recent sold-out theatre tour around the country. Dune Rats brought 2017 home with two ARIA Award nominations and some of the biggest crowds they have ever played to on the Falls Festival tour.
2018 kicked off very nicely with singles ‘6 Pack’ and ‘Braindead’ landing at number 55 and 75 respectively on Triple J’s Hottest 100, and huge performances at Sydney City Limits, The Drop Festival Tour, Big Pineapple, Bass In The Grass and a huge Splendour headline slot with ‘Dunies & Friends’.
With a tonne of touring under the belt and album number three calling, Dunies disappeared in the studio for the first half of 2019 and resurfaced very recently to kick in with their new single ‘No Plans’. Of the track the band says, "No Plans was the first song we’d written after coming off a long stretch of touring and summed how we felt at the time. It’s about throwing three sh*ts to the wind and seeing what sticks."
No Plans will roll out Dune 7 worldwide with a string of international tour dates.
Live the Dune Rats way - ‘NO KOOKS, NO GUTTIES!!’
