Deez Nuts – I hustle everyday

Deez Nuts is an Australian hardcore band that formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2007. Currently comprising vocalist J. J. Peters, guitarist Matt Rogers, bassist Jon Green and drummer Alex Salinger. The band has released one EP and Two Studio Albums. It was named after Dr. Dre’s song of the same name.

Deez Nuts started after the disbanding of Australian metalcore band I Killed The Prom Queen, of which JJ Peters was the drummer. After being heavily influenced by the hip hop and hardcore punk styles of music, Peters decided to start Deez Nuts. After he wrote a few songs he entered the studio to record the Deez Nuts 2007 Demo.

The band played a few shows around Melbourne, and after such a positive response Peters entered the studio again to finish recording Deez Nuts‘ first release, an EP titled, Rep Your Hood. Shortly after the release, Deez Nuts embarked on their first tour of Australia during October 2007, the infamous Drunk and Disorderly Tour, with friends The Amity Affliction and The Daylight Curse.

After a short break the band then set out on an Australian Boys of Summer Tour in January 2008 with Silverstein, alongside Set Your Goals, The Amity Affliction and Capeside. The tour was a huge success for the band, who were growing bigger within the Australian Hardcore Community. Shortly after the Boys of Summer Tour, JJ began writing the next release for the band.

JJ placed Deez Nuts on hold for the months of May and June 2008, to focus on his commitment to the I Killed The Prom Queen farewell tour. I Killed The Prom Queen’s Say Goodbye Tour took place in May and June 2008, with most shows selling out almost immediately. The supporting acts for the tour were Bring Me The Horizon, The Red Shore, The Ghost Inside and a local act from each city played at. After the tour, JJ continued writing for the debut album of Deez Nuts.

The Deez Nuts debut album was recorded by Roman Koester of The Red Shore at Complex Studios in August 2008. After the recording process, Deez Nuts embarked on a tour of Australia in September 2008, joined by I Killed The Prom Queen alumni Michael Crafter’s new band Confession. Then in October, Deez Nuts was invited to tour Europe with English deathcore act Bring Me The Horizon along with friends The Red Shore and Ignominious Incarceration. During this tour of Europe, Deez Nuts‘ first album, Stay True, was released on 4 October 2008, in Australia by Stomp Entertainment. Once returning from Europe, Deez Nuts began planning a National Australian tour in support of Stay True. The Stay True Tour took place from January to February 2009, supported by hip hop artist Louie Knuxx.

After a string of Australian shows, Deez Nuts returned to Europe to tour with English hardcore band Your Demise. During this tour, Deez Nuts organised a few headline shows in England, which received positive reviews and crowd reaction. The band immediately headed to the USA for a tour with American hardcore act Ligeia. Upon arrival to the US, the band was denied entry due to misinformation with their paperwork, and were sent back to Australia.

During the time in between tours JJ spent back in Australia, he formed a hip hop/rap group called Grips & Tonic with New Zealand rapper Louie Knuxx. The Group released a full length album, Want Some, Get Some, which was released in June 2008.

In June and July 2008, Deez Nuts toured Australia again on the second Drunk and Disorderly Tour with The Amity Affliction, this time playing much larger venues as the last tour, mainly because both bands had gained a larger fanbase due to recent album releases. At the after parties for the tour, JJ’s new group Grips & Tonic played a string of shows, which received positive reviews.

In September 2008, Deez Nuts headlined the Australian Sike Your Mind tour, playing alongside Miles Away, Antagonist A.D., and In Trenches and Blkout. In October 2008, Deez Nuts returned to Europe with Swedish band Raised Fist, and returned to the Australian live scene in December on the Schools out for Summer Tour with American band The Ghost Inside, Australian bands Mark My Words and Mourning Tide, and JJ’s Grips & Tonic project.
