Melbourne’s greatest Springfieldian doom band are back after a TV induced slumber. A bombastic, and crushing new track ’Sixty Six & Six’ is the first studio recording the band has released since the tragic passing of one of it’s founding members and drummer Nathan Johnston in late 2007.
The track tackles the lamely rebellious ways of Rod and Todd Flanders as they refuse to go to church (on a Saturday) and utter hell-no’s to any damn vegetables. Dr. Colossus shows off theirsignature lumbering sound this time with a nod to 80’s inspired choruses and choral backings.
Melbourne’s Tuff Cuff Records will release ‘Sixty-Six & Six’ as a limited edition 7” record and the band will be hitting the road with a long list of great, heavy Australian bands in September for their largest tour to date.
Having gigged alongside bands like Acid King, Brant Bjork, The Dwarves, Red Fang and NZ’s Beastwars; Dr. Colossus’ reputation as one of Melbourne’s most lighthearded heavyhitters is firmly in tact. Dr. Colossus gained worldwide attention after the release of single ‘Stupid Sexy Flanders’ in retaliation to Ned Flander’s themed metal band Okilly Dokilly’s arrival on the scene. The track earned national radio play as well as a flood of coverage from radio & music media globally.
