If you’re one of the very few people who hasn’t discovered DZ Deathrays yet, firstly you need to give yourself an uppercut for waiting so long, then you need to hit play on Episode #27 of Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall because we’ve got Shane Parsons from the band on co-hosting duties this week to talk up their new album Bloody Lovely which is out on Friday (our review here). He also chats about their recent performance at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane when they scored the opening slot for the Foo Fighters, a dream gig only a select few have managed to be a part of as well as the ferocious and hectic moshpit frenzy they send fans into, every time they play a live show.
Talking about that Foo Fighters show, podcast host Browny has also tracked down Joey McClennan, the legendary (and fuckin’ talented) fan who completely blew everyone away, including frontman Dave Grohl when he jumped on stage and absolutely played the fuck out of their song ‘Monkey Wrench‘, while Dave sang vocals. Joey shares his story about how he practised for the show, what he did when he got in through gates and what it was like up on that stage playing with the fuckin’ Foo Fighters. He also takes part in our new segment ‘Two Songs That Changed Me‘ and reveals his love for a hardcore band we think he’d do a great job filling in for.
There’s also new music from Korn frontman Jonathan Davis, Camp Cope, Dream State and Linkin Park‘s Mike Shinoda as well as the song which won Mastodon a Grammy Award and a look at who is playing the 2018 Groovin The Moo Festival.
