Brissy surf-punks Dune Rats have shared a new mini-documentary entitled Aussie Pub Rock Lives on Forever.
The short film captures the trio on tour throughout Australia earlier this year while promoting their third studio album Hurry Up and Wait, joined by TOTTY, Dear Seattle and Ruby Fields. The film’s title is a reference to Hurry Up and Wait closer ‘Mountains Come and Go But Aussie Pub Rock Lives on (Forever)’.
If you’re a Dunies fan who caught the band on the recent tour, there’s lots to enjoy about this one. There’s tons of live shows, behind the scenes footage and interviews with artists and crew providing an insight into what touring with the trio is like, and how the band has developed over the years more broadly.
Hurry Up and Wait was released back in January of this year. Anchored by singles like ‘No Plans’, ‘Rubber Arm’, ‘Crazy’ and the K.Flay-featuring ‘Stupid Is as Stupid Does’, it scored them their second consecutive #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, following 2017’s The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit.
“We didn’t set out to make a big album, or a polished album, or an album about partying because the last one did alright, or an album not about partying because we want to get away from that,” commented the band’s Danny Beus upon announcing the album.
“It’s just writing about different stuff in our lives. It was always just going to be Dunies.”
