No strangers to the gaming world, DZ Deathrays have had multiple tracks feature in games, including Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, and NHL 22 via EASPORTS. Simon (who coded and programmed the game) says he was thrilled to bring the band experience to DZ Deathrays fans:
“I think ultimately we’re always just looking for new and fun ways for us to bring our music to people. The game gives us the opportunity to share a simplified perspective of what it sometimes feels like trying to ‘make it’ in a band. For example: saving up to blow all your money on pyro for a gig is one of the greatest joys of being in a rock band so it’s cool to be able to share that feeling a little with our fans.”
To celebrate the release of Dive Bar Superstars, DZ Deathrays have announced a livestreamed launch party on Friday 29 October on Twitch, where they will go up against fellow musician Jamie Timony (These New South Whales/MOSSY) and battle it out to see who truly is the ultimate Dive Bar Superstar! The launch party will also be joined by a few secret ANZ-based creators who will invite along their own communities into chat as they play through Dive Bar Superstars and discuss the new game with the band.
DZ Deathrays’ Dive Bar Superstars is out on Friday 29 October, available to download on any smart device from Apple iOS and GooglePlay store. For more info keep an eye on: https://linktr.ee/dzdeathrays.
