Best tour name of 2017? Well, probably, yeah. 


The latest Dune Rats tour will see the boys hit up regional areas across the country. It comes in the wake of their latest video for Braindead, which sees the fellas performing in a giant field of dank kush.

Dune Rats are celebrating the release of their latest album in a way that suits them best. By crafting and releasing their own beer. 


Dunies Lager is a slightly hazy, summer smasher of a beer with a full blown dank hop nose and flavour, courtesy of some late addition hop hash.


Mosaic, Citra, El Dorado and Azacca hops give a feisty first impression, but mellow...

While acknowledging the ascent of jangle-pop burnouts Dune Rats over the last few years, one must also acknowledge the backlash. For every packed show and rousing singalong, there's been an equally vocal series of detractors that demonise the band for their bong-ripping hedonism. Whatever your stance, the trio have an undeniable presence in the Australian music climate –...

The Dunies love to sink a couple of XXXX Gold tinnies before a show.


It might seem like the music industry isn’t doing too well, if a band as high flying as Dune Rats have to drink that kind of poison, but as vocalist/guitarist Danny Beusa explains, it’s just about being thrifty.
“We’re saving money on the beers so we can buy more weed or something,” he laughs. It...

Up first, High Tension terrify the small collective of punters gathered in front of stage. Karina Utomo, weighing in at about 45kg and 5’4”, lets loose with her hardcore stomp and banshee-like scream. Awesome, fuzzed out punk rock with a circle pit edge, High Tension kick arse. They belt out Collingwood second in the set. It’s perhaps their most well known song, but no giggles are...

A life that revolves around an office job, routine daily hours and civil uniformity is usually described as normal. However, use of the term ‘normal’ is somewhat misleading, as it implies that those who deviate from this way of living are outsiders. One might argue anyone could adopt this behavioural pattern if they tried hard enough, but certain individuals simply have no inclination to align...

The Dune Rats have earned their reputation as one of Australia’s rowdiest surf rock acts; I'd first heard of their shenanigans and garage/stoner vibes before I'd heard any of their music. When it comes to on stage antics, Dune Rats are able to hold their own. The Brisbane trio prove skilled with their instruments and have produced a wide range of sun-soaked pop songs that will...
