Deez Nuts – Shot After Shot


Deez Nuts is an Australian hardcore band that formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2007. Currently comprising vocalist JJ Peters, guitarist Matt Rogers, bassist Sean Kennedy and drummer Alex Salinger. The band has released one EP and three 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.

Deez Nuts released their third album, “Bout It” in March 2013. The album featured their full-time line up and some guest spots from members of Architects, Hatebreed, Madball, Suicide Silence, Skarhead, On Broken Wings and Endwell. It was Produced by Shane Frisby (The Ghost Inside), and consisted of 16 tracks, including singles “Band Of Brothers” and “Shot After Shot”. In March 2014 Jon decided to leave Deez Nuts to focus on his personal life. Replacing him will be Sean Kennedy, who is one of the original Members of the Band.
