Australian riff rock trio, Dallas Frasca will release their highly anticipated third studio album, ‘Love Army’, on April 17th in Australia. The new album release coincides with a tour announcement and signing a record deal with Australian independent label Social Family Records. This triple announcement is the culmination of almost 10 years of hard work, performing over 700 shows, seven international tours and fast becoming one of Australia’s most exciting and revered bands across the globe.
“When SFR’s Marketing Manager Alli Hodge introduced us to Dallas Frasca’s new material, it was love at first listen. Rock n’ Roll is part of our young DNA over here, so we’re thrilled the band is taking us on their wild ride. ‘Love Army’ will impress even the sceptics. It’s their best work to date and we are so excited for fans to hear it from April 17th.” says CEO Jake Challenor.
Band members Dallas Frasca (vox/guitar), Jeff Curran (guitar) and Josh Eales (drums) are equally happy to be signed to this emerging label. “We couldn’t be more happy to be a part of the Social Family Records family. We’re all pretty excited about what the future holds for the band and looking forward to a long, fruitful and creative relationship with them.” said Dallas.
‘Love Army’ was written across the globe during their five international tours over the past two years. The album was produced by New York based producer, Andy Baldwin (Bjork, St Lucia, Cat Empire), engineered by Richard Stolz at Woodstock Studios in Melbourne and mastered by Joe LaPorta (Sterling Sound, NYC – Foo Fighters, Vampire Weekend, The Killers).
The power trio are eager to unleash their new material onto their Australian and European supporters. The band have just announced Australian national tour dates in May 2015 as a part of the LOVE ARMY tour that will take them across the planet including the UK and France (album out on Mar 16th through Verycords in France)

On Ugly Kid Joe’s recent tour to Australia with Skid Row, Whit & Sonny from UKJ rolled into one of our shows during our #rockfuckingrolltour. Everyone hit it off big time, so it was decided there was no choice but to collaborate and head into ColourSound Recording Studio’s and lay down some tracks together. It was an incredible session so stay tuned for the sounds to come!
A big thank you to everyone who pledged, shared, tweeted, supported, you have warmed our hearts to the core. You guys helped us raise almost $22,000, which is an enormous feat for an independent band!! All of this money will go directly towards the making of our new album, ‘Love Army’ (recording + artwork costs + manufacturing + film clip). Amazing effort!
