900,000 streams across only 6 singles. Sold-out headline shows. Major playlisting success. And the band is only 15 months old.
Welcome to Perth’s soon-to-be-festival-favourites, DICE.
As always, DICE are effortlessly commanding in their latest single ‘Bad Tattoo’. Featuring their signature soaring guitar riffs, smooth buttery vocals and driving drums. Reminiscent of Aussie favourites, The VANNS, Spacey Jane and Beddy Rays, DICE add their own hugely accomplished take on Indie-Rock into the Aussie Anthem oeuvre.
“Bad Tattoo steers away from deeper meanings like our past tracks had (self belief, the mental and physical strain of gigging, how to cope with young relationships). We wanted to create a track which can embody our cheeky, light hearted side of experiencing young adulthood. With reference to past experiences, we portray bad tattoos as a good thing, a representation of a memory rather than regret.” DICE
The boys of DICE have spent time in the studio with collaborator and producer Sam Ford at Tone City Recording Studio (Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, POND & Abbe May) recording their latest single, ‘Bad Tattoo’. A grungy rock anthem for the adolescent experience, that will make you look fondly at the garage tattoo’s you let your friend do after a few beers.
“Our songs were written prior to recording during our rehearsals and spare time. However, the collaboration with our producer, Sam Ford led to new ideas that we had not considered before. It was a very collaborative and open minded process of trying new chords, harmonies and lyrics which lifted the song to another level. The ability for different creative minds to be able to share ideas led to additional components being a pivotal part of the tracks. “DICE
‘Bad Tattoo’ is the latest single pulled from their upcoming debut EP, Adolescent Arcade, a collection of memories mapping their formative first year playing as a band. “We wanted to be able to share our experiences, emotions and struggles over the past year. As we progress as a band, we want to show our old and new fans that we’re still a bunch of young guys who are passionate about music.” DICE
Barely a year old, this band’s ambition, drive and talent cannot be understated. From playing their first ever gig as a band in November of 2020, to sold-out head-line shows, to playing support for bands like Death by Denim and Great Gable, DICE’s growth is unstoppable and exponential.
Their most recent release ‘Double Espresso’ secured major Spotify Editorial Playlisting (Front Left, Local Noise, New Music Friday, Rock Out, The Local List, Coast To Coast, Coastal Drive & Fresh Finds), Apple Editorial Playlisting (The New Rock) as well as spins from Triple J Unearthed, and community radio stations like RTR, 2SER and 4ZZZ.
To celebrate the release of their upcoming debut EP Adolescent Arcade, DICE have announced a 4 stop tour of WA, the last stop being their very own festival ‘DICE Fest’. Speaking of this, DICE say “Our upcoming EP tour is a huge milestone for us and a major achievement after only 15 months as a band. We have been privileged to be able to support other bands tours such as Dear Sunday and Death by Denim but there is something extra exciting and special about doing it yourselves. This is definitely a big mark in our career and we are ecstatic to be able to perform our own shows at some of our favourite places such as Margaret River and also do our first All Ages show at YMCA HQ.” DICE
