After some drifting through the deep sonic universe The Datsuns can finally reveal special guests for this Australian tour as it hurtles through the planet.
The Datsuns latest album Deep Sleep elaborates on their signature breakneck-paced rock’n’roll delving into more menacing terrain summoned from the bands collective proto-metal 70s influences; Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult and Bloodrock, to name a few.
