DMA’S finished 2019 by supporting Liam Gallagher on a huge UK arena tour and in 2020 will be headlining Live At Leeds Festival, Hit The North Festival and Sounds Of The City, (Manchester – Castlefield Bowl) as well as main support to Gerry Cinnamon at Hampden Park (Full tour dates below).
DMA’S released their second album ‘For Now’ last year, which achieved their highest UK chart position at #13, boosted by huge ongoing daytime support at radio. An impressive 40,000 tickets were sold on their headline UK tours and their summer touring continued that ascension with main stage sets at Isle of Wight, TRNSMT and Citadel alongside huge outdoor shows with Courteeners and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Latest single ‘Silver’ finds DMA’S gift for crafting unifying, arena-ready anthems elevated to new heights. It adds a surfeit of personality and American radio rock influences to their love of the British indie scene, making for a global-facing track rooted in their love of the Stone Roses and The La’s. Frontman Tommy O’Dell’s vocals possess a new found maturity and emotional resonance, delivering an unabashed love song that will surely connect far beyond their devoted fanbase.
‘Silver’ was produced by Scott Horscroft (Empire Of The Sun, Silverchair) at The Grove Studios, mixed by multiple Grammy winner Stuart Price (The Killers, Everything Everything) at Westlake Studios in West Hollywood, where DMA’S and Price recorded the new album.
Completed by guitarist Matt Mason and Johnny Took, DMA’S formed in Sydney and made an immediate impression with their 2014 debut EP. Their full-length debut ‘Hills End’ saw them crash into Australia’s Top 10, before ‘For Now’ cemented them as a force to be reckoned with. The album earned three ARIA Music Award nominations for Best Group, Best Rock Album and Best Independent Release.
In 2018 they became one of the first Australian bands to play the iconic MTV Unplugged session, following in the footsteps of all-time greats such as Nirvana,Oasis and R.E.M.The performance was captured in this summer’s ‘MTV Unplugged Live’ album.
