DZ Deathrays are Brisbane’s overly accomplished thrash party duo made up of Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley. The pair has sold out multiple tours across Australia and New Zealand, opened for The Foo Fighters’ stadium tour, and accumulated two back to back ARIA awards for Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal albums Bloodstream (2013) and Black Rat (2014) released last year on Dine Alone.

For their latest single, “Blood On My Leather,” DZ Deathrays teamed up again with Black Rat producer Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, The Drones). “Blood On My Leather” hits you straight on with Ridley’s pounding drums and ceases to relent as Parsons’ heavy guitar riffs and brash trademark vocals weave through the single’s quick twists and turns.

DZ Deathrays are currently working on new material and plan to deliver new music soon. For more information, visit
