Following the release of their rambunctious new single Sort It Out, today, Beddy Rays announce the release of their debut self-titled album, available Friday 29 July.  The Redland Bay larrikins are pumped to also announce their biggest national tour to date for this August and September.

Beddy Rays have this to say of the forthcoming album, “When we started a band many years ago as young whipper snappers in Reddy Bay all we wanted to do was play gigs, sink tins and chat to all the legends we’d meet along the way. Now we have our very own album firmly in our grip, and to say we’re excited is a major understatement. We decided to go with a self-titled album for our debut because we believe this album IS Beddy Rays through-and-through. It’s honest, raw and nothing other than what we’re all about… mateship, Reddy Bay, good times and beers, but also the importance of looking after yourself and checking in with ya mates. It’s made up of our recent singles and a bunch of brand newies we’ve been cooking up for you legends. A nice mixed bag of lollies! We hope you love it as much as we do!”

Produced by Brock Weston and Beddy Rays, and recorded at Brock’s Place in Brisbane, ‘Beddy Rays’ features the aforementioned thrasher Sort It Out, the chaotic Week On Repeat, the explosive Wait A While, a rowdy dose of Milk, the mosh ready beast On My Own and the anthem that started it all, Sobercoaster. 

Renowned for their raucous and undeniably boisterous live show, Beddy’s will kick of their national album tour on Saturday 13 August on the Sunshine Coast and will travel to Perth, Brisbane, Byron Bay, Hobart, Wollongong, Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne and Torquay with further shows to be announced. 

Beddy Rays, composed of vocalist, guitarist and Woppaburra descendent Jacko Van Issum, lead guitarist Lewi McKenna, bassist Brad O’Connor and drummer Benny Wade, have been on the rise for the past couple of years.  Their breakthrough anthem Sobercoaster landed at #54 on the triple j hottest 100, racked up over 3.5 million streams and has seen the band continue on a ballistic trajectory ever since.  The four-piece have gained multiple nominations at both the Queensland Music Awards and National Indigenous Music Awards and were announced as winners of the Levi’s Music Prize in 2021 and rocked their cover of Thelma Plum’s Better in Blak for triple j’s Like A Version. 

Beddy Rays have annihilated festival stages at Valley Fiesta, Summer Sounds, Play On The Plains, Super Fun Day, ShoreShocked and The Push and will perform at Spin Off this July alongside Glass Animals, Spacey Jane and Jack Harlow

Get ready Australia, 2022 is set to be a Beddy good time!
