UK tour dates confirmed with The Cribs and Gang Of Youths
“Demob Happy are rock giants in the making.”
“The barbed, fidgeting ‘Dead Dreamers,’ sees Demob retaining that same fuzz, but sneaking in (whisper it) a mega-dose of Muse-nodding stadium ambition.”
“Ace new single.”
Brighton’s Demob Happy return with the first new music since their acclaimed debut album ‘Dream Soda’ in new single ‘Dead Dreamers’, due via Atlantic Records imprint Taste and Tone.
Watch the video for ‘Dead Dreamers’ below:
“The world tried to set itself on fire the last year, us included,” front-man Matt Marcantonio explains. “We had to mutate and figure out what this band was, so we just wrote and wrote until we knew. Dead Dreamers is a reflection of that. We expelled our demons, along with the worlds’. We wrote the best stuff we’ve ever written.”
With their debut single heralded as “a joyride through rock’s sleazier back alleys” by the Guardian, Demob Happy have asserted themselves as an unstoppable sonic force since their inception. Their debut album ‘Dream Soda’ was dubbed “a frantic, fucked-up mission statement to rival the best of the year” by DIY Magazine, “absolutely chockablock with good fucking songs” by the NME, and further high praise from the likes of Upset Magazine, Clash, Classic Rock, The 405, Team Rock, Total Guitar Magazine and many more.
Revered basements gigs in their own coffee shop-come-studio HQ, the Nowhere Man Café, sold-out headline shows across the UK and Europe, and appearances at Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape and SXSW Festivals all ensued. Looking ahead, Demob Happy are currently working with Tom Dalgety on a new album.
Confirmed to support The Cribs across the UK at shows including London’s The Forum on May 18th, Demob Happy will also support Gang Of Youths through April and May on the dates below.
‘Dead Dreamers’ was produced by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Royal Blood etc).
