DZ Deathrays and WAAX have teamed up to deliver two absolutely belting covers, both released today, with DZ Deathrays reworking FU and WAAX bringing their signature style to a rendition of Fired Up.
“One thing that is so rewarding about doing cover versions is learning how other song writers craft their music. WAAX are one of our favorite bands so it’s been an honour to discover how FU was put together all while giving it our own little spin! To me this song is pure passion and angst and it was an absolute dream to work on.” – DZ Deathrays
“To any guitar band in Australia, working with DZ is not something to be taken lightly. They’re truly iconic Brissie legends and we’ve grown up with and admire their forthright guitar riffs and chaotic drums. We kept on asking ourselves, “how would we have written Fired Up?” We tried to keep those iconic DZ moments – huge guitar solo, driving drums, octave guitars FX – but make them ours.“ – WAAX
In addition, to celebrate their forthcoming album ‘Positive Rising: Part 2’, DZ have teamed up with the legends at Built To Spill to launch a collab ‘DZ Deathrays Positive Sparkling Cremant’ – party fizz for one of Australia’s most high energy bands, the special release Pet Nat is made up of certified organic chenin blanc from Margaret River, WA. The Positive Sparkling Cremant is finished like traditional sparkling wine, making it the ultimate thirst crusher yet still ultra-crisp and clean.
Fans can order this limited edition Pet Nat bundled with a digital pre-order of ‘Positive Rising: Part 2’ via Built To Spill while stocks last!
