"Year Of the Dog" is the second offering to be previewed from their upcoming fourth album Positive Rising: Part 1, after last month's "IN-TO-IT".
Vocalist and guitarist Shane Parsons says of their new collaboration, "Matt from The Bronx—one of our all-time favourite bands—drove an hour from his house, came into the vocal booth and nailed his part on, like, the first go. I felt bad for making him drive so far. But it was also just a showcase of how good a vocalist he is…and that was unreal for me, because now with Lachlan in the band, I’ve been trying to approach things from a vocalist’s perspective, and it shows you how hard you’ve got to work."
DZ Deathrays' new album follows on from last year's Bloody Lovely. It was written over a two-week period in LA, and also features contributions from Kirsty Tickle of Exhibitionist, as well as a song co-written with Kim Moyes of The Presets. The album is produced and mixed by Miro Mackie (St Vincent, Cold War Kids, Waax).
