“..rollicking guitars, thrashing drums and explosive vocals.” NME “A particular depth of camaraderie generated by music that can only come from being the closest of mates.” SCENESTR “...continue to push their sound forwards without losing the character and charm that makes Beddy Rays such an adored new favourite.” PILERATS “Beddy Rays are the epitome of good summer vibes, with their surf-rock vibe and catchy lyrics.” BEAT “The Beddy Rays boys are sitting on a f*ckin rocket at the moment.” AAA BACKSTAGE
Following the release of their rambunctious new single Sort It Out, today, Beddy Rays announce the release of their self-titled debut album, available Friday 29th July 2022. The Redland Bay larrikins are pumped to also announce their biggest national tour to date for this August and September. Beddy Rays have this to say of the forthcoming album, “When we started a band many years ago as young whippersnappers in Reddy Bay all we wanted to do was play gigs, sink tins and chat to all the legends we’d meet along the way. Now we have our very own album firmly in our grip, and to say we’re excited is a major understatement. We decided to go with a self-titled album for our debut because we believe this album IS Beddy Rays through-and-through. It’s honest, raw and nothing other than what we’re all about… mateship, Reddy Bay, good times and beers, but also the importance of looking after yourself and checking in with ya mates. It's made up of our recent singles and a bunch of brand newies we’ve been cooking up for you legends. A nice mixed bag of lollies! We hope you love it as much as we do!” Produced by Brock Weston and Beddy Rays, and recorded at Brock’s Place in Brisbane, Beddy Rays features the aforementioned thrasher Sort It Out, the chaotic Week On Repeat, the explosive Wait A While, a rowdy dose of Milk, the mosh ready beast On My Own and the anthem that started it all, Sobercoaster.
