Sydney’s timeless guitar pop trio DMA’S have followed up the recent success of new single ’In The Air’ with the announcement of a huge national tour to support the release of their sophomore record, For Now, out worldwide on Friday 27 April via I OH YOU.
As they take in the biggest tour of their career to date, the band will hit the Tivoli in Brisbane, Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre, Fremantle’s Metropolis, Forum Melbourne and the Enmore Theatre in Sydney for shows that will further cement their status as one of Australia’s best live acts, as well as launching the much-anticipated For Now into the stratosphere.
Since the release of their widely acclaimed debut album Hills End, DMA’S have toured non-stop, playing just shy of 200 live shows. They’ve headlined sold out tours globally and played all the major festivals around the world including Coachella, Glastonbury, Splendour In The Grass, Lollapalooza, Laneway and Fuji Rock Festival – to name a few.
Locally, Hills End debuted at #8 on the ARIA Album Chart and earned the band a 2016 ARIA nomination for Best Breakthrough Artist. Singles including ‘Delete’ (certified Gold in Australia), ‘Lay Down’, ‘Too Soon’ and ‘Step Up The Morphine’ adorned the band with countless praise the world over. In the same year, DMA’S covered Cher’s classic ‘Believe’for triple j’s Like A Version – the cover becoming the most streamed Like A Version to date and taking out the #6 spot on the 2016 Hottest 100; making it the highest ever position for a Like A Version on the countdown.
Not ones to sit on their laurels, DMA’S wasted no time in following up the success of their debut with recent single ’Dawning’, a track that has now been streamed over 1.5 million times and popped up in this year’s Hottest 100 – their fourth consecutive year in the countdown. Recorded between The Lady Hampshire in Sydney’s inner west and The Grove Studio with producer Kim Moyes (of The Presets), the track has combined with ‘In The Air’ to provide a tantalising taste of their new album For Now.
DMA’S will be ably supported on this tour by Brisbane indie-pop star Hatchie, who’s first two breakout singles ‘Try’ and ‘Sure’ have pricked up ears throughout the world.
Fans eager to get their hands on early tickets can sign up for access to the Secret Sounds presale which runs from 9am local time Thursday 22 February to 8am local time Friday 23 February. Tickets for the General Public will go on sale at 9am local time Friday 23 February.
‘Where DMA’s truly succeed… is in forging an emotional connection with their audience, finding beauty in the mundane and occasionally making you feel like you can take on the world.’ – Sydney Morning Herald
‘Whether it be their raucous choruses, or stripping it back to just an acoustic guitar and singing, a DMA’s live show is something that needs to be seen to be believed.’
‘There is much to savour…’ – Q
‘…the euphoria they evoke at this packed show is undeniably special.’ – NME
