“HOLY SHIT WE JUST GOT ADDED TO SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS!!!”
After announcing the news via Facebook only 48 hours prior to the huge event, the intensity of the situation grew as the band and fans alike expressed their happiness for the situation at hand after the disappointing pullout of Catfish & the Bottlemen
The Brisbane boys took on the Amphitheatre stage on Friday evening with a vengeance; ready to show Splendour in the Grass why they should have been on the 2015 line up earlier.
Oh boy how they did that.
No one knew entirely what their set would behold, with eager fans serenely making their way to the stage looking at around at each other with willing curiosity about how the next hour would pan out. But as soon as that thrashy electric guitar hit the speakers, a rush of energy filled the crowd and everyone quickly figured it out.
The mosh pit soon became a mess of laughter and yells of fury as people battled it out while their favorite songs from the rock duo’s latest LP ‘Black Rat’, along with total crowd rocking classics from ‘Bloodstreams’. Their set left revelers muddy as hell, scratched, bruised, but ultimately ecstatic for what they had witnessed.
With a guitar-shattering finale (literally) it is definitely fair to say that DZ Deathrays came back bigger and better than they did last year, and hopefully willing to step it up in years to come. to say that their always welcome at Splendour would be an understatement, whether they be on the original lineup, filling in 2 days prior or just getting crooked in the tipi forest.
