The Brisbane pop-punk trio Dune Rats are as colorful and energetic as their music suggests. Their songs are filled to the brim with spontaneity and fun, and in keeping with this general party vibe, the band shared a video today for their track 'Stupid Is As Stupid Does' featuring the rising star, K. Flay.

This is the lead single off their upcoming LP 'Hurry Up and Wait' and if you read our review of the album, you'll know we really liked it! The video features the Dunies - comprising members Danny Beus, Brett Jansch, and BC Michaels - and the singer K. Flay romping around Los Angeles together and having a complete blast. Check out the video for their latest single here! 



 

In addition to this lead single, the Dunies have plotted their return to North America this May with a new set of tour dates. This excursion will be in support of their soon-to-be-released third LP, 'Hurry Up And Wait', which is out this Friday, January 31, via Rise Records. Kicking it all off with a Canadian headlining run on May 5, the Dunies will join up with Millencolin & A Wilhelm Scream for an East Coast run, and then tag-team with The Flatliners for a West Coast run.

These North American dates will also follow the band’s biggest Australian tour ever, this March! For full tour dates and tickets, click here.

'Hurry Up And Wait' is the third full-length LP from the Dune Rats and the successor to their critically acclaimed No. 1 ARIA album, 'The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit'. Working alongside their best mate and producer James Tidwell (Violent Soho), engineer Mitch Kenny, producer/songwriter Miro Mackie (Mallrat, HEALTH, St. Vincent) and mixer Mike Green, the new album sees the winsome threesome create their cleanest and most optimistic album yet. It also features some of their most mature songwriting to date, honing in on their beloved brand of raucous, anthemic '90s skate-punk.

Of the new album, drummer and backing vocalist BC Michaels says: “This is our favorite album we’ve ever made. It took a few years to get it together but we got to go to a bunch of cool places and we are super proud of it. We’d be stoked if other people like it as much as us.”
