Tropical Hazards has done what only few bands have achieved.
That is to capture the raw power and energy of a band live on stage and put it on a record.

It’s a high-octane, hell-raising rock ‘n roll ride, that was produced by Ian D’Sa (Billy Talent) and Eric Ratz (Big Wreck, Danko Jones, Monster Truck). 10 belters that are unabashedly outrageous, packed with classic songs about wild nights, pretty girls, heartbreak, and resilience but are never cliché. It picks up where they left off in 2015 with their Top 10 Canadian singles, Shake It Like You Mean It and Black Rebel

On past tours with bands like Billy Talent, Danko Jones, Monster Truck and The Headstones, The Lazys quickly gained a reputation for their rowdy, high-energy performance. With the release of Tropical Hazards the band are out to do what they do best: Bring the party!

“I want people to leave feeling entertained,” says lead guitarist Matty Morris. “I want them to leave thinking that was the best rock show they’ve ever seen. To leave sweaty, dirty, horny”

This will be proved when The Lazys now enter European stages again so get ready for The Lazys folks, no city or town is gonna go unscathed!

ABOUT THE LAZYS
Formed way back in 06, The Lazys are not newbies on the scene. They paid their dues in bars and dives all over Australia for years, releasing a few EP’s along the way before deciding to make a break for it. So they packed bags and went to New York City to record a new album.
Then things took a surprising turn in Toronto at Canadian Music Week where they were booked to play 3 shows in 24 hours. The first was to 10 people but they spread the news like wildfire. The second gig attracted prominent booking agent Ralph James, who signed them on the spot! And at the third, Ian D’Sa, guitarist for Billy Talent, became an instant fan and soon a collaborator.
The band and D’Sa co-wrote “Shake it Like You Mean It” and “Black Rebel” over Skype between Australia and Canada, then recorded the tracks in Vancouver with GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Nickelback, Red Hot Chili Peppers). The songs were added to the already completed self-titled album, and released on Pheromone Recordings (Joel Plaskett, The Dears).

“And they went Top 10. Which is crazy,” says Matty. “From all of that, we built a relationship with Ian, then decided to do a full album together.”
Enter, Tropical Hazards…

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
