DZ Deathrays made a name for themselves at house parties around Australia, playing a blend of rock, punk and thumping dance beats that never sat squarely within one genre.
DZ Deathrays have been recognised as one of Australia’s leading rock bands, winning the Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album at the 2012 ARIA Awards. DZ tour all over the world, extensively, too. One of those bands that are always touring the world, DZ have picked up loads of fans doing what they do best.
Originally as a two-piece, Simon Ridley and Shane Parsons expanded DZ Deathrays to include a third member in 2019, Lachlan Ewbank.
I started working with DZ Deathrays after Black Rat was released, in the lead-up to Bloody Lovely.
