DMA’S share new single ‘Silver’ ahead of UK tour with Liam Gallagher

Since releasing their second album FOR NOW in 2018, Australian modern rock heroes DMA’S have been building their profile towards one that matches their star status in their homeland. It 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 this year; 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.

Now DMA’S are poised to make a major breakthrough with their third album, which will be released in 2020. The first taster of the album comes in the shape of the new song SILVER.

SILVER finds DMA’S gift for crafting unifying, arena-ready anthems elevated to new heights. It adds a surfeit of personality and 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 fan base.

SILVER was produced by Scott Horscroft [Empire of The Sun, Silverchair] at Grove Studios, and was mixed by multiple Grammy winner Stuart Price [The Killers, EverythingEverything] at Westlake Studios in West Hollywood, where DMA’S and Price continue to work on the rest of the album.

Completed by guitarist Matt Mason and Johnny Took, DMA’s formed in Sydney and made an immediate impression with their self-titled 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.

DMA’S will follow the release of SILVER by joining LIAM GALLAGHER on the opening seven dates of his huge November UK arena tour. The band and Liam are mutual friends and fans of each other’s work, with Liam describing FOR NOW as “Biblical”. Dates are:


Mon 11 CARDIFF Motorpoint Arena [Sold Out]
