DZ Deathrays announce new album 'R.I.F.F.'

Following on from the release of their much-loved 2021 LP 'Positive Rising, Pt. 2', DZ Deathrays have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'R.I.F.F.' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Tuff Luck', which comes accompanied by a stunning Phoebe Faye-directed video, and is set to be released on the 2nd June.

Speaking about the new record, they said, “It feels amazing to finally be able to announce that our new album R.I.F.F is going to be released. This album has been a different approach to recording for us, using multiple studios and bedrooms split across Brisbane and Sydney. We really took our time with this album, reworking songs along the way making it the longest recording process we have ever done, close to 2 years. What it’s ended up as is one of our most raucous and fun records yet revisiting some of the flavours of Blood Lovely whilst adding a new style of production for us.”

While adding about 'Tuff Luck', “I’ve always been the type of musician who loves to jam as many ideas into a song as possible but on this one, I wanted to challenge myself and focus on one bassline and work as many lyric ideas around that one idea as possible. It’s weird you can have fun saying that we have royally fucked up. The drums in this song are some of the best on the album, chopped it up alongside samples and treated them with different effects depending on where they came from.”
