Dune Rats Say 'Fuck It'

May 2nd 2012 | 1:00pm | Dan Condon
The new single from Brisbane surf-garage two piece party lovin' men about town Dune Ratsis called Fuck It, which might go some way to describing their general outlook on life, which we feel is probably a pretty good one. Much like the song, really, which is a furious little number that is simple and catchy and just about puts together everything we know and love about the band and have done since they burst onto the scene not very long ago.

The hard working touring dudes they are, the band are getting out on the road in support of the single, just a few short weeks after their tour alongside Bleeding Knees Club wrapped up, and will be playing the following clubs and probably partying relatively hard as they do so.

The single is out on iTunes this Monday, it comes froma  new EP which will be out in June and you can witness the apathy in the live setting at:

Thursday 17 May – Neverland, Coolangatta (with Gung Ho, Pigs Porken and Little Mind)
