Following on from their killer debut EP, Adolescent Arcade, Perth four-piece DICE are treating us with their new single, The Search.
The introspective track sees the band attempt to navigate the uncertainty of what lies ahead, inspired by the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Frontman Ben Hodge's signature compelling vocals unfurl above driving percussion and electrifying riffs.
“The Search explores the themes of uncertainty of the future ahead, which were heavily influenced by the ever changing COVID-19 restrictions in Western Australia. We also were influenced by climate change and the lack of action we see in today's politics. This drove us to write a song where the meaning is deeper than previous songs we have written as we feel strongly about these issues.” the band share.
To celebrate the release, DICE will host a launch show at Perth's The Rosemount on July 9, supported by The Velvet Club (VIC), King Blue and Hey So Hungry. The band are also set to support Great Gable on their national tour, kicking off in Adelaide on October 7. The run of shows will continue on to Melbourne, Ballarat, Geelong, Coffs Harbour, Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, Brisbane, Byron Bay and Maroochydore, before wrapping up in Perth on November 11.
The Search is out now!
