Australian riff rock trio, Dallas Frasca will release their highly anticipated third studio album, ‘Love Army’, on April 17th. The new album release coincides with a tour announcement and signing a record deal with Australian independent label Social Family Records. This triple announcement is the culmination of almost 10 years of hard work, performing over 700 shows, seven international tours and fast becoming one of Australia’s most exciting and revered bands across the globe.
“When SFR’s Marketing Manager Alli Hodge introduced us to Dallas Frasca’s new material, it was love at first listen. Rock n’ Roll is part of our young DNA over here, so we’re thrilled the band is taking us on their wild ride. ‘Love Army’ will impress even the sceptics. It’s their best work to date and we are so excited for fans to hear it from April 17th.” says CEO Jake Challenor.
Band members, Dallas Frasca (vox/guitar), Jeff Curran (guitar), and Josh Eales (drums), are equally happy to be signed to this emerging label. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of the Social Family Records family. We’re all excited about what the future holds for the band and looking forward to a long, fruitful and creative relationship with them!” said Dallas.
Renowned for their electrifying live shows, Dallas Frasca recently played to a 40,000+ strong crowd in Le Mans in France as a part of the 24hr Circuit race, and have been since labelled by the Europeans as “the next AC/DC“. Support slots have included Patti Smith, Triggerfinger, Earth, Wind & Fire, Aerosmith, Billy Joel, Van Halen, The Tea Party and festivals all throughout Europe and the UK alongside 30 Seconds to Mars, Wolfmother, and many more.
‘Love Army’ was written across the globe during their five international tours over the past two years. The album was produced by New York based producer, Andy Baldwin (Bjork, St Lucia, Cat Empire), engineered by Richard Stolz at Woodstock Studios in Melbourne and mastered by Joe LaPorta (Sterling Sound, NYC – Foo Fighters, Vampire Weekend, The Killers). The power trio are eager to unleash their new material onto their Australian supporters. The band will start a national tour in May 2015. Full tour details below.
