DUNES were invented in the warmer periods of 2016 by several earth dwellers poorly masquerading as human beings in the city of Newcastle.
They play desert-riff-blues-tinted-disco-tinged-rock, which draws on influences such as Clutch, Torche and Queens Of The Stone Age.
They wasted no time getting amongst the live scene of their native Newcastle and further afield and have shared the stage with the likes of Idles, Monster Magnet, Red Fang, The Picturebooks, Mutation, Boy Azooga and many more.
DUNES recorded have released 2x 5-Track EP's which were recorded and produced by Graham Thompson who has previously worked with Frankie and the Heartstrings, Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaind, Kubicheck and Jinn.
DUNES Are set to release their debut album in 2019.
