Bass Drum of Death, DZ Deathrays

Two death-obsessed duos are set to destroy Fitz on Thursday night. Recent Fat Possum Records signees Bass Drum of Death and the Australian two-piece DZ Deathrays combine their raucous, untamed sound for an incendiary tour that should leave everyone's ears ringing long into the weekend. After a successful stint opening for Japandroids in 2011, the Mississippi duo Bass Drum of Death are set to make their own distinct mark on the garage-rock scene with this headlining tour and their just-released debut LP, GB City, which was written and recorded solely by BDOD mastermind John Barrett himself. DZ Deathrays will add to the riotous festivities with their own blistering rock attack.
