Recently, Mark Donnelly of the UK magazine, Fireworks, ranked D2UR’s album “Tic Toc” as one of the top 50 albums for 2017. That’s pretty heady stuff for D2UR’s second album released July 1, 2017. “We like the harder edged direction we pursued for “Tic Toc” and it seems to be paying off for us” says Mike Isbister. Now to kick it up a notch for the follow up.


‘Run Devil Run’ hits Canada

D2UR’s latest single, the hard hitting “Run Devil Run” was released to radio across Canada this week. Coupled with the release was a short edited version of the video for the same. Power Play magazine says ‘Run Devil Run’ is harder with a driving beat that makes you want to over-rev the engine. Let’s get on the bandwagon Canucks!


Power Play Magazine reviews Tic Toc

Another great review in from Power play magazine this time. We’re beginning to believe the U.K. is getting the picture and we’re loving the attention. So what does Power Play say about D2UR: ‘Well they’re a pretty damn good rock n’ roll band”. Lot’s of positive comments about Diane’s vocals comparing her to Sheryl Crow and Chrissie Hyde – not bad company for a Winnipeg girl. Check it out!

Bring in the Heavy Hitter – Fitzy

A BIG thanks to our friend Brent Fitz who made his way back home to drum with us for our CD Release Party. Brent went out of his way to find time in his hectic touring schedule to make it home for this event. It was fantastic having you drum on all 11 songs on the ‘Tic Toc’ album, and so sweet to have you behind the kit conducting us on stage. Cheers Brent!

Fireworks Magazine reviews ‘Tic Toc”

Fireworks magazine in the UK have provided an overwhelming positive review of ‘Tic Toc’ in their fall 2017 issue. Mark Donnelley provided the review for the magazine basically endorsing it and urging readers to ‘get Tic Toc’. Wow, such fantastic feedback and reassurance for all the hard work that went into the album. 

‘Tic Toc’ CD Release Party

The Tic Toc CD release party was by all accounts a roaring success as D2UR played to a sell-out crowd of 500 people at the World Famous Palamino Club in Winnipeg. Maning the kit for D2UR was no other than Brent Fitz (Slash, Alice Cooper, Gene Simmonds Band, etc). D2UR were introduced by the iconic Howard Mandshein from 92 CITI FM in Winnipeg to kick off the show which began with a 9 song set of songs from the Rev U Up album and ended with a blistering set of full songs from the newly released ‘Tic Toc’ album. Look for a new single release from the album in the coming weeks. Cheers!
