DUNE RATS+ MOLLY + MUTT
At a time when true rock tales are as rare as chicken lips, Dune Rats are traveling the globe as punk rock pied pipers, attracting an army of ferocious life enthusiasts who are as willing as they are to throw the dice, turn reality sideways and roll with whatever goes.
They have supported acts such as The Hives and Best Coast, played shows all over the world from South Africa to Singapore, USA to UK, but their proudest musical moment to date is the release of their self-titled LP. Recorded in just over a week with a Steve Albini ethos in my mind, their debut record is indie/jangle/surf/garage rock with no bullshit songs, written in a garage and recorded by a friend.
After 40 shows in early 2015 as main support for British rockers The Subways, an Aussie national tour with punk legends Cosmic Psychos, a signing to Dine Alone Records and a massive run with FIDLAR through the USA & Canada, Dune Rats are back across the Atlantic to hit a few of their favourite EU / UK haunts.

Four bodies, fuzz and guts. MUTT are female-fronted, raucous, yet at times, curiously melodic. Think Sonic Youth and L7 meets the LOUDquietLOUDquiet pop spunk of Pixies with a twist of The Cure. Hailing from Birmingham and formed in early 2014, this feisty four-piece twist their influences beyond recognition to create a unique brand of uncompromising, unapologetic rock.
