It’s here – the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Your new favourite band The Durries have gone and completed their debut EP, which is surprising considering the no-smoking policy in the studio…
Recorded over 24 hours with nothing but six cartons of beer and just enough pouches of Winnie Blue to keep them going, your old mates and ours are stoked to bring you We Build Schools, a six track EP for your inhaling pleasure. Continuing in their belief that all durries are created equal, they’re giving Emphysema Rock a red hot go with songs like Port Royal, Winnie Blues, Lucky Strike and their first classic tobacco anthem, the poetic Marlboro Gold.
Having played just a handful of shows, including supporting The Beards, the blokes will be hitting the stage again to celebrate the release – darb in hand – and they’re inviting you to come tear your rotten lungs up singing along with them. Based purely on having one of the biggest smokers areas in Brisbane, The Durries will be launching their EP at The Brightside alongside Brisbane legends Surfin’ Bird, and snake-themed band (seriously) Sylvia.
In lead up for their EP’s imminent release, the lads have put out a call to arms on social media to all “durry munchers” to get behind them as they set their sights on the nation’s biggest festival – Splendour In The Grass. Jump on the #durriesforsplendour bandwagon to see them take out the Unearthed competition this year, and “support this ridiculous excuse for a band”. Do it for Bryan!
