Over the past couple of months Sydney locals DMA’s have been drip feeding fans a fair helping of their infectious brand of Brit pop inspired indie rock, and now with the February 26th release of Hills End just around the corner, the Sydney locals have now unveiled a slew of Australian dates on what will be the first leg of their globe trotting world tour.
The tour follows on from what has already been a hectic start to the year for the band, which has been spent travelling the country as part of St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival. Kicking off in in May the trio will be criss-crossing Australia’s capitals before jetting off to perform coveted slots at Coachella and SXSW festivals in the US.
Recruiting Dylan Adams to assist with sound engineering and industry veteran Spike Spent for mixing duties, the group have opted to co-produce their debut album.
“We didn’t have much engineering experience when we started, but it was all about the tunes,” guitarist Matt Mason reflects. “I think there’s something kind of nice about co-producing your first record. It’s made it a really good representation of what the band are,” He adds.
It’s been two years to the day since the release of DMA’s much lauded debut single Delete.
