DMA’S have revealed full details of their forthcoming third studio album, THE GLOW, released on 24 April. The album was recorded and mixed by multiple Grammy Award winner Stuart Price [The Killers, Madonna, New Order] between Westlake Studios in West Hollywood and RAK Studios in London.
The band have also revealed the beautifully dark and euphoric track, LIFE IS A GAME OF CHANGING, the second single from the album. Inspired by the early 90s rave scenes, the single is a nod to bands such as Underworld, New Order, Orbital and The Chemical Brothers and furthers the band’s incorporation of digital beats and sequencers in their songwriting process.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CHANGING is about humanity’s struggle to be adaptable, as creatures who are fundamentally resistant to change, and features unapologetically busy beats, a driving 4/4 pace and an adrenaline-fuelled chorus showcasing Tommy O’Dell’s signature euphoric vocals.
The album finds DMA’S fulfilling their potential with a collection of songs that are destined for arenas. From their emotive heart to their towering, anthemic hooks, the core traits that have earned the band a growing global following are all in place but, with the help of Stuart Price, DMA’S have elevated both sides of their sonic spectrum to new heights.
THE GLOW will be available to purchase on CD, download and heavyweight black vinyl as well as limited edition heavyweight tricolour vinyl through HMV and independent record stores. There will also be exclusive merchandise bundles with signed prints plus limited-edition heavyweight transparent green vinyl, cassette and highly limited signed test pressings when purchased through the band’s store.
2019 saw the Sydney natives put the final touches on THE GLOW, play sold out shows across the UK and Ireland, support Liam Gallagher on his huge arena tour and sell 5,000 tickets to their London Brixton Academy show in March this year in less than 24 hours.
This year, the band will headline Manchester’s Sounds of The City at Castlefield Bowl – with 8,000 tickets selling out in less than two hours – Live at Leeds Festival, Hit the North Festival and are main support for Gerry Cinnamon at Glasgow Hampden Park. Following that the band play Truck Festival, Tramlines in Sheffield and Kendal Calling, before returning to the UK in October for their biggest London show to date at Alexandra Palace.
