DARTZ, the beloved punk rock quartet from the capital, have released their latest single 'Steal From The Supermarket'. The track is a raucous and rebellious ode to the high prices that New Zealand customers are charged for basic essentials, and the band's frustration with the duopoly that allows supermarkets to get away with it.
DARTZ will be celebrating the release of the single with a hometown release show and charity food drive at San Fran in Wellington on Friday 10 March, with tickets available from Undertheradar - $10 for those bringing a food/goods donation for local charity, and $25 for those who can’t bring themselves to slip a couple of cans into their pocket.
Recorded by James Goldsmith in Wellington, 'Steal From The Supermarket' is a fast-paced, high-energy DARTZ cut that showcases their signature blend of singalong hooks, relatable yet cutting lyrics, and ferocious energy. The track is an anthem for anyone who feels ripped off by the big supermarket chains in their day to day lives, and a rallying cry for those who refuse to be taken advantage of any longer.
"We're really excited to release 'Steal From The Supermarket'," says DARTZ singer Danz. "It's a track that's close to our hearts, and we think it really captures a lot of the things that people around the country are feeling right now. DARTZ is not afraid to speak truth to power, and this song is our way of telling the supermarkets that we're not going to stand for their price gouging any longer."
The release of 'Steal From The Supermarket' follows on from the success of DARTZ's debut album The Band From Wellington, New Zealand in 2022, which shot to #1 on the top 20 New Zealand Album charts and cemented the band's status as one of the most exciting acts in the New Zealand music scene. With their latest single, DARTZ look set to continue their upward trajectory and build on their growing reputation as a band that isn't afraid to speak their mind.
'Steal From The Supermarket' is available for digital download and streaming on all major platforms.
