DARTZ Unleash Road Trip Video For 'Toyota Corolla'

DARTZ Unleash Road Trip Video For 'Toyota Corolla'

Fresh from tearing it up at Valhalla last night, the DARTZ lads will be cramming into their famed customised Toyota Corolla for the epic drive from their Wellington hometown to Hamilton 'City Of The Future' to play Friday's Waikato leg of their ongoing summer tour. True road dogs, they'll be bouncing from the Tron for a headline gig at Tāmaki's Whammy Bar on Saturday, playing all about the South Island next week then returning to the super city on the 29th for The Others Way mega-festival. Giving us all a taste of what to look forward to, DARTZ have unleashed brand spanking new visuals for their beloved car's titular pop-punk tune, collaged together from on-the-road footage by Sports Team and made with support from NZ On Air.

Following the grandest of Kiwi music video traditions, 'Toyota Corolla' documents Danz, Crispy, Rollyz and Clark Mathews driving all around Aotearoa on tour, spruced up with some incendiary embellishments including a cute mini-version of their car busting through a billboard. You'll feel the band's pain as the DARTZ-mobile catches fire near Queenstown (extinguished with beer?) and gasp at the majestic concluding bungy jump — smash that play button below...

"This video is a love story: not just between DARTZ and [their car] Candice, not just between DARTZ and the beautiful country of Aotearoa, but also between the DARTZ boys themselves. That’s one of our main goals in everything we do: to try capture and share with the world the story of the ever-deepening friendship and love between Crispy, Rollyz, Clark and myself. Whether we’re drinking beers on a sunny day in Wellington City, killing it on stage, or crammed into a tiny death machine hurtling over the Crown Range with smoke billowing from our tires, that love will always come through.” - Danz
