If you fast forward two years since their debut LP ‘Dogs A Bay’, Bad//Dreems have come a long way. Today marks the release of ‘Gutful’.

Working again with the production team of Mark Opitz (INXS, the Angels, Cold Chisel etc) and Colin Wynne at their West Brunswick studio over the latter half of 2016, ‘Gutful’ is 11 tracks of literate Antipodean rock and roll anthems that refines the powerful sound we heard on Dogs at Bay.

But the world has changed dramatically in the year since and throughout Gutful, Bad//Dreems have brilliantly captured the anger, fear and frustration felt by so many of us.

The sound of the record will be familiar to those who have witnessed Bad//Dreems much heralded live show.  Essentially tracked live, ragged garage guitars are underpinned rocksteady groove James Bartold (bass) and Miles Wilson (drums). Ben Marwe’s voice is more vivid and visceral than ever before. Although labelled “pub rock” by many pundits Gutful makes it clear that the band are not such an easily digestible piece of pie.

Tour News: Bad//Dreems are hitting the road in June making five stops around most capital cities. Check out the details here
