  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Swagger, alt-pop, power and rock, two guitars, a beast behind the kit, and a mighty presence at the mic. Dallas Frasca is all of those things, and more. And they’re on a highway right to the top.

    The award-winning Aussie rock‘n’roll outfit hit the Top 30 ARIA Charts in the first week of release and is a stand-out of its class, with its arsenal of heavier-than-the-earth songs, led by its namesake front woman, riff-maven rocker, with a knack for channelling Janis Joplin. Dallas, raised in the small Victorian town of Wangaratta (the home of Nick Cave), leads from the front with her enigmatic guitarist Jeff Curran. Their worlds collided in 2006 with a chance meeting in a Melbourne dive bar. An early incarnation of the group produced a huge sound as an alt-duo, with an unusual mix of dobros, stomp boxes and home-made instruments. Now a trio, with recent-arrival Josh Eales on drums, the act has steadily built a global following, and made friends in high places.

    It’s all built on a foundation of solid rock, and a dedication to the road. From the start, Dallas Frasca has had a grass-roots approach to heavy touring. They’ve electrified crowds across more than 700 shows, including upwards of 150 festival slots. They’ve rocked the iconic Sydney Opera House and worked the audiences at major international festivals from the Big Day Out, Falls Fest and Pyramid Rock Down Under, to International Earth Day (Canada) and Les Nuits de La Guitare de Patrimonio (France). Along the way, they’ve supported Patti Smith, Aerosmith, Van Halen and Earth Wind & Fire, there’s been collaborations with the likes of Whitfield Crane, (Ugly Kid Joe), Sonny Mayo (Sevendust) and in 2010, Dallas fronted the legendary Aussie rock band Midnight Oil (with Violent Femmes’ Brian Ritchie on bass) in support of Amnesty International.

    The best is yet to come.

    In Feb 2015, Dallas Frasca signed a multi-album deal with Sydney-based label, Social Family Records. The first release through that arrangement is “Love Army,” Dallas Frasca's third full-length album.

Track Name: Success Is The Best Revenge
SUCCESS IS THE BEST REVENGE
I don’t want ya, I don’t need ya
I got my things together,
I knew I had to get out.

You lie, you cheat, I despise,
So long it took to realise,
Let me tell ya now, I’m not gonna cry, no.

Success is the best revenge, woooo
Got no-one to hold me back, woooo
Higher than I’ve been before, woooo
Stomp the dance floor, Stomp the dance floor

Best thing about breakin’ witchu,
There is no more fighting
Take more than that to bring me down.

I know that I will survive,
I think some luck found my side,
Just had to open my eyes, yeah.

Success is the best revenge, woooo
Got no-one to hold me back, woooo
Higher than I’ve been before, woooo
Stomp the dance floor, Stomp the dance floor
Track Name: You Are Beautiful
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

You are beautiful, the way that you are, the way that you are

I broke the mirror, I couldn’t figure,
Smoke was a killer, clouding my mind,
How was I so blind?

You stabbed my back, judgement I lacked,
Intimate enemies, in bed we climbed,
How you look so fine?

You are beautiful, the way that you are, the way that you are

I turned the page, broke free of the cage,
The billboards you see, & their blatant lies,
Happy sacrifice.

What is your fear? With no burden from peers,
Be yourself no matter what they say,
Fuck what they all say.

You are beautiful, the way that you are, the way that you are

Whoooooaaaahhhhhhh, Whoooooaaaahhhhhhh,

You are beautiful, the way that you are, the way that you are
You are beautiful, the way that you are, whoooooah..
Track Name: Today
TODAY
Today, there’s something in my way today,
Today, I feel the weight of change today,
Today, the sun won’t shine it’s rays today,
Today, the rain won’t clear my way.

Ooooohhhhhhh, ooooooooooohhhh.

Today, you’ve got to change your way today,
You shared my shade of grey today,
Well take my words and paint the world.

Ooooohhhhhhh, ooooooooooohhhh.

Well hey, a day means nothing anyway, yeah
Toche, cause nothing ever stays the same, yeah.

Today, I used your name in vein, today,
Got to do to keep from being insane,
Guess it’s meant to be my fate.

Ooooohhhhhhh, ooooooooooohhhh.

Well hey, a day means nothing anyway, yeah
Touché, cause nothing ever stays the same, yeah.

Now I feel today, the writings on the wall.
Now your gone, I am so invincible.
Now your gone, I am so invincible, ooooooohhhhhh.

Well hey, a day means nothing anyway, yeah
Touché, cause nothing ever stays the same, yeah.
Well hey, cause now today is yesterday.
Track Name: Suzy's On My Mind
SUZY’S ON MY MIND


When I woke it was raining.
Where the hell was I?
My headache it was lifting,
I still think that I’m high.

Suzy’s on my mind,
My vodka needs a lime.
Never felt so fine,
Tuesday’s suicide.

Two days I’m anxiously waiting,
Monday’s clown disguise.
I reached out for my old friend,
Sarah’s tone just died.

Suzy’s on my mind,
My vodka needs a lime.
Never felt so fine,
Tuesday’s suicide.

Wednesday I am fried,
Thursday I am blind,
Potion help me rise,
Here comes my decline.

Suzy’s on my mind,
My vodka needs a lime.
Never felt so fine, fine.
Saturday I am fine,
Mask so I can hide
Never felt so fine, fine.
Suzy’s on my mind,
My vodka needs a lime.
Never felt so fine, fine.
Suzy’s on my mind,
My vodka needs a lime.
Never felt so fine, fine
Tuesday’s suicide, Tuesday’s suicide, Tuesday’s sewer.
Track Name: Lizard Boy
LIZARD BOY

Lizard boy, you got something to say?
You wanna dictate a certain disdain?
I gotta tell ya, well you ain’t got me.

Lizard boy, did they pick on you?
Did your mother bleed her wounds in you?
I gotta tell ya, yeah something for free.

We see through your lies,
Most are hypnotised.
We reject you, step aside,
Time for us to rise.

Lizard boy, you got something to prove?
What happened to you? I’m afraid to say,
I gotta tell you, you are fracking insane.

Lizard boy, did you like digging holes?
Have you walked through the ancient trees?
I gotta tell you, that you’ve got a disease……. Yeah yeah yeah

Chorus
We see through your lies,
Most are hypnotised.
We reject you, step aside,
Time for us to rise.

We see through your lies,
Most are hypnotised.
We reject you, step aside,
Time for us to rise.

We see through your lies,
Most are hypnotised.
We reject you, stand down now.
Time for us to rise.

Did they hate on you, did they pick on you?
Track Name: Here All Along
HERE ALL ALONG

I packed up my suitcase, and now the aeroplane wheels leave the ground.
I look out of the window and wonder how they got the lines so straight?
I saved every coin I had, I’m dozing off at 2pm, jet lag.
Got so much to absorb before I’m buried dead.

Ooooohhhhh, ohhhhhhhh

I’m looking to my left & watching curly moustached men wearing top hats,
I caught the second train to Cognac while I finished the whole bottle of my red.
Watched the Moulin spin around while my weary mind dozed off,
Got so much to absorb before I’m buried dead.

Ooooohhhhh, ohhhhhhhh

I TRAVELLED THE WORLD TO FIND
WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR WAS HERE ALL ALONG * 4

I packed up my suitcase, and now the aeroplane wheels hit the ground
Track Name: The Day That We Were Done
The day that we were done

I thought that I was no one, til I found, found you.
Yesterday I went home, all by myself.
Never thought you would ever leave,
What you gave away was lovin’ me, oooohhhh, yeah.
You just stood there and watched me burn,
Now I understand the way it hurts, ooooohhhh.

Guess we’re not together anymore.

I seen it in your face, the day that we were done, it said it all now
I seen it in your face, the day that we were done, it said it all now, oooohhhh.

It took of my strength to, fix my broken heart,
You said to me that nothing would ever tear us apart.
I can’t believe that half the time you’re lying,
The pain I’m in I feel like I am dying, ooohhhh, yeah.
I am sorry I was such a fool,
I didn’t know that love could be so cruel, oooohhhh.

Heart stopped beating.

I seen it in your face, the day that we were done, it said it all now
I seen it in your face, the day that we were done, it said it all now
I seen it in your face, the day that we were done, it said it all
I seen it in your face, the day that we were done, it said it all now.
Track Name: Love Army
Red dust filled skies, the dogs are howling as each man dies
Dandelions plains are scattered by the sound of hellfire

Warmonger souls, fight for the quarrel of the king as their faith
Crusaders released, 1000 blades drawn for two days

ohhhhhhhhh

Poisoned minds wailed, Freya heard all of their cries
Bleeding tears rained from heavenly turmoiled skies

Battered men cast their eyes to something swallowing all the light
Shadows like night, Freya stretched out her wings for their delight

Freya’s love washed through the fields, every man her causality
One by one, every soldier dropped in ecstasy …she blows…

Whispers began, spread like a disease
The overlord has spoken, across Gaia’s almighty seas

oooooohhhhhhh

They fought for their Kings, the battle went on, on & on, & on.

Freya’s army now marched together as one.
Torches now lit, their marching to the same rhythm of the drum

Every time that you see, the dandelion flying free
Remember Freya’s love, across Gaia’s almighty seas.
Track Name: Rise
RISE

You guys are doing so well, I seen ya pictures,
You look so hot; narcissistic, faker fuck.
A number one smash, the cameras will flash,
Hope u giving head, won’t give you a rash.

Everybody loves you when you’ve made it baby.

Rise - tonight’s the night,
Set your stage on fire.
You’re a hero, hear the fans scream and shout,
Whatchu gonna do when the lights go out?

So you want to be a big shot in the sea?
Says you must believe in the fantasy.
Yeah, kissing their ass, eye fucking the sass,
Hope you giving head, won’t give you a rash.

Everybody loves you when you’ve made it baby

Rise - tonight’s the night,
Set your stage on fire.
You’re a hero, hear the fans scream and shout
Whatchu gonna do when the lights go out?
Track Name: Corazon En La Seda
CORAZÓN EN LA SEDA

My true love came, with the heart of a boy,
I wrapped it in silk, to fill it with joy.
He gave it to me so carefully,
I opened the door when it yearned to be free.

It danced in my hands, blew wind through my hair,
Put me down on my knees and air in my lungs,
When the storm starts to blow, you’ll find who really cares.

On a ship in the night, it dropped over board,
Got lost out at sea, as I washed up on shore,
I searched all around, I looked down at my hands,
And all that remained was blood staining the cracks.

It blocked up my nose & it pissed on my feet,
Showed me no mercy when I tapped my defeat,
It danced in my hands, blew wind through my hair,
Put me down on my knees and air in my lungs,
When the storm starts to blow, you’ll find who really cares.

Blind on my path I was soon to discover,
The smell of a rose from underneath the covers,
I took off my clothes, he handed it back,
It was always there, I just got lost on my track.

It danced in my hands, blew wind through my hair,
Put me down on my knees and air in my lungs,
When the storm starts to blow, you’ll find who really cares.

When the storm starts to blow, you’ll find who really cares.
Track Name: Papa Was A Rolling Stone feat. Whitfield Crane & Sonny Mayo - Ugly Kid Joe
PAPA WAS A ROLLING STONE

It was the third of September.

That day I'll always remember, yes I will.
Cause that was the day……… that my daddy died.
Well Well, I never got a chance to meet him.
Never heard nothing but bad things about him.
Mama, I'm depending on you, to tell me the truth.

Well she just hung her head and said;

Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Well, well
Hey Mama, is it true what they say, that Papa never worked a day in his life?

And Mama, there bad talk going around town saying that Papa had three more children and another wife.
 And that shit ain't right.

Folks said Papa did some store front preaching.
Talkin about saving souls and all the time leeching.
His dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.

Oh yeah and she said…

Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Papa was a rolling stone, well, well, well wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Uh!


Folk say that Papa was never much on thinking.
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking.
Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth.

And she said with a tear in her eye;

Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Papa was a rolling stone, well, well, well wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Papa was a rolling stone til end…
