The Datsuns have announced their first UK tour in 3 years, exclaiming 'we are super excited to play the new record live, it's gonna be loud!' The Datsuns 5 date tour starts in Bristol at The Fleece on 27th October and culminates at the Lexington on 1st November.
'Deep Sleep' was written and recorded in a blistering fast ten days at Roundhead Studios in Auckland last January. The result is a sonic explosion that arrives, lights the place on fire, then leaves, all within the space of 34 minutes.
Singer/bassist Dolf de Borst explains, 'We're not f*cking around. We're all conscious of the fact that we don't live so close to one another (Stockholm, Auckland, London, Wellington), if we're together, we're going to make records.'
'DEEP SLEEP' elaborates on their signature breakneck-paced rock'n'roll delving into more menacing terrain summoned from the bands collective proto-metal 70s influences; Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult and Bloodrock, to name a few. Semi-tones are thrown in amongst blues scale riffs creating a darker, more evil sound that summons images of 1970s cult film super-villains.
