The 2nd single from Dez Dare’s forthcoming album is released, ‘10,000 Monkeys + An Argument With Time’.

‘A Billion Goats. A Billion Sparks. Fin.’ features 11 songs that delve further into the void than previous records, leaving the sardonic frustration behind for sarcastic existentialism, zeroing in on the big philosophical questions, and the pedantic shards of nonsense that make up our existence.

Tying beats, lo-fi electronics and a bass sound that will implode your speakers into a ball of anxiety, Dez looks at how we experience time and the perspective we need for change.

Dez says “time is kicking us all while we scramble around this rocky mass. If time passes slower closer to the mass, get HI to get perspective!” The concept stems from the elasticity of time as a dimension and where we sit within it. Someone living at the top of a mountain will experience time faster than someone on the ground as they are closer to the mass. Maybe if we all took a step back, took to the hills or even further… we might just see the world a bit clearer.

The self-produced Australian has spent over 3 decades producing music, releasing and touring bands, and doing live sound for z-grade metal bands. Growing up in the coastal town of Geelong (Djilang) in Australia, he was introduced to the DIY punk and rock scene at 15 and this community and the ideas rooted in the underground music scene have guided his output and ethics throughout his career.

This year Dez will be joining forces with label titans God Unknown (Cassels / Duke Garwood / James Johnston + Steve Gullick / KLÄMP / Oneida / Laura Loriga / Monster Magnet / Wellwater Conspiracy [Soundgarden + Monster Magnet]) and will be producing a deluxe version of the album on blob colour vinyl and includes a comic book illustrated by Mike Keane. In true nerd fashion the comic also features top 10s by Dez, Jason Stoll (God Unknown), Matthew Barnhart (Chicago Mastering Service), Mike Keane, and the album illustrator MALMALL.

‘A Billion Goats. A Billion Sparks. Fin.’ out March 1st on God Unknown Records.
