High achiev­ing slack­ers make Air­lie last stop on na­tional tour

IN­DIE skate rock­ers the Dune Rats are on tour and mak­ing a stop at Air­lie’s favourite place to party.

The Bris­bane three piece will play one last show at Mag­nums Ho­tel, which is the last stop in a re­gional tour over five states.

The pop-punk trio is rid­ing a high after two of their songs made the 2016 Triple J Hottest 100 on­line lis­tener’s poll.

When Who’s Scott Green? And Bulls**t came in at 34 and 33 re­spec­tively the lads cer­tainly cel­e­brated.

Co­in­cid­ing with the tour the Bris­bane lads have just dropped the video to the sin­gle, Brain­dead.

The video de­picts the boys skat­ing a mini ramp in the mid­dle of a cannabis crop.

“Brain­dead started out in our mate Grudge’s shed on the south coast in Man­durah,” the band mem­bers said.

“We jammed it at a few re­hearsals then at all the sound-checks on tour with FIDLAR in the USA.

“That’s where Du­nies & Zac started shap­ing not only that song but the sound of the al­bum.”

Dune Rats get stronger with ev­ery new track.

Do not dis­miss th­ese kids as just an­other garage band, there is some true ta­lent hid­den be­hind their stoner locks.

“It’s hard for us to say what any track is about be­cause we’ve al­ways writ­ten songs that can be taken heaps of dif­fer­ent ways,” they said.

“It all comes down to the per­son lis­ten­ing to it.”

The Dune Rats have been work­ing on their own TV show which is ex­pected to fea­ture a bo­gan char­ac­ter called Daniel.

For slack­ers the Dune Rats re­ally get in and get things done, but they do it in a clas­sic, crass stoner Dune Rats kind of way.

Danny Beusa­raus, BC Michaels and Brett Jan­sch aka the Dune Rats, are ex­cited to end their na­tional tour in the idyl­lic Whit­sun­days and to go out with a bang at Air­lie’s

favourite place to party – Mag­nums Ho­tel.
