Dune Rats And Cosmic Psychos Team Up For A Co-Headline Tour

In what is pretty much guaranteed to result in some insane shenanigans, Australian punk icons Cosmic Psychos and new kids on the punk block Dune Rats are heading out on a combined national tour, set to rip up stages across the country this June.

It’s been a whirlwind few year for the Psychos, known at home and across the globe for their ear drum-busting punk rock sets, and the trail of beer bottles they leave behind them. Two years on from the release of the documentary Blokes You Can Trust – which featured interviews with the likes of Butch Vig and Eddie Vedder, testifying to their Cosmic Psychos fandom – the Aussie veterans are back with a brand-new album.

Cum The Raw Prawn is the band’s first new record in six years and was recorded on Ross Knight’s farm in January this year. According to a statement, the album features “beer-soaked, bulldozer-fuelled pub anthems” and promises to be as “unapologetic as ever”. Listen to its first cut, Better, Not Bitter, below.

Brisbane punks Dune Rats have also had a jam-packed year. After a successful debut album release in Australia, the band have toured relentlessly at home and abroad and just found themselves a spot on the massive Splendour 2015 lineup. First though, they’re heading out on tour with punk rock royalty.

Get ready, this is going to get crazy.
