DARTZ Unleash Debut Album 'The Band From Wellington, New Zealand'

DARTZ Unleash Debut Album 'The Band From Wellington, New Zealand'

Chris Cudby / Friday 4th November, 2022 11:00AM

Friday 4th November, 2022 will go down in the history books as DARTZ Day, that landmark moment when the Te Whanganui-a-Tara four-piece unveiled to the world their debut album The Band from Wellington, New Zealand via Flying Nun Records. Feeling like a career-spanning best of, yet in fact the first official long player from Danz, Rollyz, Crispy and Clark Mathews, the album includes eight new versions of time-honoured DARTZ faves, laid down at Roundhead Studios with producer Steven Marr — rowdy fresh takes on such politically searing anthems as 'One Outs Captain Cook', '40 Riddiford Street' and 'Prey For Prey', along with party punk classics 'High At The Beach', 'Toyota Corolla', '4AM' and more. There's also two newies in the mix, recent single ‘No Dogs At This Party’ and scorched almonds diss track 'Scorchos', in which Danz bravely reveals a festive secret held by many: "I hate scorchos!"

No doubt the Trash Recital stars will be brushing up on late night viewings of Muriel's Wedding, Crocodile Dundee 2 and Wake In Fright in preparation for their first ever Australian tour, happening in November before they return for a triumphant run of summer homecoming shows, including selected dates with The Chats.
