HAV­ING topped the ARIA Aus­tralian Artist Al­bums Charts in Fe­bru­ary with their al­bum Bloody

Lovely, DZ Deathrays are now in the run­ning for ARIA’s 2018 Best Hard Rock/Heavy Me­tal Al­bum.

The nom­i­na­tion was an­nounced yes­ter­day.

The band’s al­bum Bloody Lovely is one of five vy­ing for the ac­co­lade.

Ear­lier this year, Bundy boys Shane Par­sons and Si­mon Ri­d­ley, from the band, said the al­bum was “pretty much a straight up rock ‘n’ roll al­bum that doesn’t re­ally stop from the get go”.

Al­though the boys haven’t been based in Bund­aberg for a while, it is the place they said kicked off their friend­ship and mu­sic ca­reer.

“We were friends in Bund­aberg and Shane used to come to my par­ties with his old band to play,” Ri­d­ley said.

“Things re­ally started kick­ing off for us when we left for Bris­bane and we have been mak­ing mu­sic to­gether ever since.”
