Dez Dare Shares New Single “Got A Fire In My Socket” – Taken From New Album “A Billion Goats. A Billion Sparks. Fin.” due March 1st via God Unknown Records

January 7, 2024



Dez Dare launches 2024 with ‘Got a Fire In My Socket’, his first song from new album ‘A Billion Goats. A Billion Sparks. Fin.’ due March 1st via God Unknown Records.

‘A Billion Goats. A Billion Sparks. Fin.’ features 11 songs that delve further into the void than previous records, leaving the sardonic frustration behind for sarcastic existentialism, zeroing in on the big philosophical questions, and the pedantic shards of nonsense that make up our existence.

Got a Fire In My Socket’ is a fuzzed up, bass and synth driven, stomper that tackles the biggest question of all… as the wires fray from the burden of existence + the last sparks shimmer in your consciousness, the void has one simple question… “What tunes do you want playing on the way out?”.

The blistering drum beat leads the way for this kaleidoscopic electronic rhythm to emerge, fighting against the gritty bass notes. Immediately this landscape compels you, it’s chaotic yet melodious and it carries this essence of lightness and vivid fun too, of which is then joined by the vocal notes of Dez. The fierce delivery of the lyrics captures Dez Dare’s unique and powerful vocal style, searing through all the immense instrumentation components and marking the vision with this passionate punch.

The track at only 2 minutes 21 seconds offers this array of addictive qualities and infectious hooks, as the composition hurtles towards this climactic eruption of madness, the lasting imprint of this release needs to be believed. You’ll be moving to the angular stikes and buoyancy of this ensemble and ready to hit play once more.

The self-produced Australian has spent over 3 decades producing music, releasing and touring bands, and doing live sound for z-grade metal bands. Growing up in the coastal town of Geelong (Djilang) in Australia, he was introduced to the DIY punk and rock scene at 15 and this community and the ideas rooted in the underground music scene have guided his output and ethics throughout his career.

This year Dez will be joining forces with label titans God Unknown (Cassels / Duke Garwood / James Johnston + Steve Gullick / KLÄMP / Oneida / Laura Loriga / Monster Magnet / Wellwater Conspiracy [Soundgarden + Monster Magnet]) and will be producing a deluxe version of the release that will include a 12 page comic illustrated by long-time collaborator Mike Keane.
