Dig The Dust at Settlers Tavern (Saturday 21st September, 2019)
It's been an exciting 12 months since Dig The Dust last visited the Settlers Tavern stage.
The guys had been writing for 18 months in the lead up to the release of their highly anticipated
debut album 'Feels Like Home' in December, 2018.  Mid last year the band stepped in to the
iconic Poons Head Studio's with legendary recording engineer Rob Grant at the helm who has
worked with 1000's of artists including Tame Impala, Lenny Kravitz, Miley Cyrus and even
Queens of the Stoneage who, while on tour in Perth, visited the studio during the Dig The Dust session's.
6 months later the album was released and has since been receiving applause from fans, critics,
radio stations and media around the globe. Reaching as far as South America, Europe & Asia.
'Feels Like Home' is available via iTunes, spotify, youtube & all other streaming sites.
Cd's will be available at the show if your into vintage collectables.
Top Shelf Music host Duncan Smith reviewed the album.
'Psychedelic tinges & blues taints abound but that old harlot rock'n'roll is unquestionably in the drivers seat
Featuring ex-43Cambridge member Rob.V's incendiary fretwork, Ross Seymour's rubbery,
Entewistle-like bass & Doug Simpson's dynamite, flair filled drumming, Dig The Dust have
produced a very classy, sophisticated high octane album.'
Triple J  'Roots'n All' host Nkechi Anele reviewed the song 'Touch The Sky'.
'If you love Paul Simon, Billy Ocean or the like - this band and their jam are your jam too.
Nothing but smiles and funky bass lines here.'
The show at Settlers Tavern will be a fun high energy party show featuring songs from
the debut album mixed with a collection of covers fusing rock, pop, blues & funk.
Some are re-invented to blow your mind and tingle the senses.  If you dig Led Zeppelin, Queen,
Kings of Leon, INXS or The Killers then your bound to dig this.
Get on down to 'Dig The Dust' and be ready for a good time!
