DZ Deathrays

Bloody Lovely

After four years away, DZ Deathrays are back and we have a Rough Trade exclusive!

Australian duo DZ Deathrays return with their third album, Bloody Lovely. Billed as the expanded universe: Bloody Lovely is perfect amalgamation of all that has come before it, but kicking in the afterburners, and shooting into the stratosphere as we all hold on for dear life. We don’t know about you but geez we reckon having DZ Deathrays back is bloody lovely!

Named for a perfectly Australian turn of phrase (favoured by the father of Parsons’ girlfriend: “it’s brutal and beautiful, and super Aussie”, says Shane) it’s a fully-formed progression from their first two albums Bloodstreams (2012) and Black Rat (2014). With Parsons in Sydney and Ridley in Brisbane, Bloody Lovely came together in bits and pieces last year while the duo toured the US, UK, Europe and locally with festival sets and a tour with label mates Violent Soho. The album was recorded at the beginning of 2017, again with Burke Reid at The Grove Studios where the duo’s last album Black Rat was born.
