Iconic Brisbane stalwarts of the party-rock scene, DZ Deathrays, have released their new single IN-TO-IT, a track that narrates the Aussie punter who lives for the weekend, and sheds light on the relationship our society has with alcohol and its effects when used as a coping mechanism.

The band, who recently wrapped up their 10 year anniversary tour, have taken the opportunity to experiment a little as they grow older, and they use the vocal style of ‘sprechgesang’, or spoken singing, in this track.
IN-TO-IT also gives us a taste of what’s to come, with the band announcing their fourth studio album, titled Positive Rising: Part 1, will be set for release on 30 August. DZ Deathrays have also expanded their lineup, and are now a three-piece after inviting long-term live guitarist Lachlan Ewbank to join the group permanently.
Positive Rising: Part 1 was written in LA, over a two week period, and features Matt Caughthran of The Bronx and Kirsty Tickle of Exhibionist, as well as a track co-written with Kim Moyes of The Presets.
Miro Mackie (St Vincent, Cold War Kids, WAAX) handled the production and mixing.
And while the album will definitely explore new territory, punters can still expect party anthems and the signature hard-hitting riffs that DZ Deathrays are known for.
