Rick Dangerous is polishing up his gold wing-tips and fuelling up the Private Jet this July-August for a 6-date tour for their new single BRAAAP!
Rick and his whimsical bantams are back (weather and pandemics permitting). Set to release their new single BRAAAP! – A tale of a gentleman, his bike and a scorching case of STD’s on a never-ending quest to find unsavoury companionship, one rural Truckstop at a time. Rick will be doubling down on an elephant’s course of antibiotics, tri pleating his slacks and throwing the leg over the steal horse, hitting the road for the epic Aftermath Festival run and closing it out with a slot at Thrashville Festival in September.
With their debut self-titled 2014 EP garnering some serious underground buzz. The lead single The General was an instant fan favourite with its ‘Grip, Squeeze, Twist, Release’ mantra sending mosh-pits into a frenzy. This was followed up in 2016 with the sophomore EP ‘Thrust Machine’ which spawned the singles Bruja and Powdered Sugar, seeing the band embark on their most audacious headline tours to date. The band was no stranger to the festival circuit either, playing several feverishly received slots including Dead of Winter Festival, Lagerfest and Mojo Burning.
Set for release July 16, Rick’s latest single Braaap! takes the band’s sordid lyrics and heavy grooves to a new level, and is set to be a huge addition to the bands live-set come July-August.

“With highly-danceable groove-metal riffage, some of the most clever and hilarious lyrics you’ve heard this century, and a bespectacled tea-sipping frontman who pelvic-thrusts like a sexual maths teacher whilst screaming like a deranged psychopath, Rick Dangerous & the Silkie Bantams have one of the most captivating and entertaining live shows in Australia right now.” – MUSIC FEEDS
