Brisbane indie/thrash/punk two-piece, DZ, have changed their name to DZ DEATHRAYS. They are very much the same band, with Shane Parsons on vocals, Simon Ridley on drums and a whole lot of noise and strobes. The name change, however, comes ahead of their plans to take on the US and UK scenes in a big way in 2011, but with the uprise in dubstep music comes the clash with long standing dubstep US DJ of the same name, ‘DZ’. To escape confusion (which has already happened), our DZ boys are now DZ DEATHRAYS (spelled all in capitals).
USA Tour + Showcase at SXSW, Austin
UK Tour + Showcase at Great Escape, Brighton

USA TOUR + SHOWCASE AT SXSW
DZ DEATHRAYS have been accepted to showcase at arguably the world’s largest showcasing festival, SXSW in Austin, Texas. While they’re in the country they will tour LA and return to New York after their brief stint in October 2010. Here are the dates so far:
Wed 9th March @ Lit Lounge, NY
Fri 11th March @ Pianos, NY
Sun 13th March @ Delancey, NY
Sat 19th March @ Sick House Party, Austin (watch this space for more info)
15th-21st March @ SXSW, Austin
UK TOUR + SHOWCASE AT THE GREAT ESCAPE
Not long after they were accepted to play SXSW, did they get the call that they were also accepted to showcase at The Great Escape festival in Brighton, UK. With the help (and special thanks) of the QLD government, DZ DEATHRAYS will be heading to the UK (and possibly Europe) in May 2011. More details to come.
NEW RELEASE COMING OUT VERY SOON + COINCIDING TOUR
After releasing their debut EP, DZ ‘Ruined My Life’, in September 2009, the band spent the all of last year touring the country with the likes of The View (UK), Yacht Club DJs, Grinspoon, Howl as well as some of their own headline tours. They played festivals such as Big Day Out, Parklife, Sunset Sounds, Campus A Low Hum (NZ), Playground Weekender and Stylewars. They finished the year off with a new single release ‘Gebbie Street’ and a 3 week stint in New York for CMJ Festival. Busy busy busy. But the guys have been busting to release something new and it’s coming out very, very soon. Watch this space.
