Perth punk champs Dennis Cometti (The Band) are back with their newie “Death Rattle”, lifted from their double A-Side 7” Death Rattle / Limiter out today via Bargain Bin Records.

“Death Rattle” is a charging punk rock tale about three unlikely lads from Freo just trying to get to Albany to play a show, fanging it down the highway in a shit box car and running into the cops along the way.

Dennis Cometti explain: “Imagine piling all your gear into the Camry, hitting the open road and having the constant punish of cops, piss stops and, of course, the fact your car is not likely gonna make it because the steering is fucked, it keeps overheating, the tyres are flat and the stereo doesn’t work. All you can think about is getting to the show to drink the rider.”

Dennis Cometti (The Band) deal in short, sharp rock warts ‘n’ anthems about life in the world’s most remote city. In 2020, the band released their debut, self-titled album featuring the unofficial Western Australia succession anthem, “WAXIT”. With the WA border shut indefinitely at the time, “WAXIT” soundtracked glossy nightly news and A Current Affair packages about the state breaking free of the Australian Federation. Even the ABC’s election analyst Antony Green suggested the official WAXit party adopt the single as their party anthem. The track was RTRFM’s most played song of 2020 and they also picked up a WAM award for best punk/hardcore act that same year.

Since then, the boys have toured some of Western Australia’s finest venues with the likes of Kim SalmonThe Chats and even managed to cross the border and play some shows over east during with their Bargain Bin label mates.

The next stop for Dennis Cometti (if the Camry makes it) is a hometown headline gig on March 4 at Lynnots Lounge in Perth. Afterwards they will then head to the UK with The Chats and Chubby and the Gang.
