“On one hand I’m hearing DZ, on the other I’m hearing Panic! I am not mad about either of these things.” – Dan Condon, Double J
“Is Doogs. Is Good. What’d we do to deserve such a great band being in our lives?” – Dave Ruby Howe, triple j unearthed
From sold out tour after sold out tour, to a string of constantly catchy-but-meaningful singles, and hilarious music videos, Good Doogs just keep proving they are leading the wave of new surf-punk in Australia.
With their latest single I’m Listening the trio from Mandurah WA give you something a little bit different.
Still catchy AF – with sweet guitar licks, BIG drums, and more singalong moments than you can poke a stick at – the new single is a little heavier than their previous releases, and shows The Doogs have a lot more surprises hidden away.
As well as now welcoming Andy officially into the band after the end of the upcoming October ‘Andy Is In The Bandy’ tour (yay Andy!) making them a 4-piece, and are playing Falls Festival nationally over New Years, the band are also currently writing their debut album, scheduled for release next year. I’m Listening will be the first taste of their debut LP.
“I’m Listening is a romantic ballad about the courtship process and all the steps from that up to making love. We tried to make the song a little bit more dark and brooding from our normal stuff, and really tried to make it punchy so the guitars hit you like a wall of sound as the chorus comes in.” – Grudge
“This song is about having sex.” – Asher
“Effectively the song is about having sex – I just don’t really know how to put it into a nice paragraph for you…” – Grudge
Releasing three singles (Nothing To Do, So Dumb and Want That) in 2018, and kicking off 2019 stronger than ever with Nobody/Alone and How I Feel Good Doogs burst out of Mandurah in Western Australia’s South-West and toured across the country on a string of headline tours – selling out cap cities time and time again, as well as jumping on tours with the likes of Tired Lion, Fidlar, and DZ Deathrays and playing BIGSOUND, Party In The Paddock, Festival Of The Sun, Groovin The Moo, and The Hills Are Alive.
