DMA’s Australian Headline Tour Kicks Off This Month

210+ million streams and counting; thousands of international arena tickets sold. A Top 10 UK chart debut with THE GLOW. Five x 2021 ARIA nominations. Just announced as a finalist in 2022’s Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition. The accolades for all conquering Sydney trio DMA’S keep on coming!

With their Sydney and Brisbane shows sold out and Melbourne and Adelaide not far behind, DMA’S will finally kick off their hotly anticipated Australian tour in just two weeks’ time… their first headline AU tour in three long years!

Announced earlier this week on the line-up to 2022’s Reading and Leeds, these will be DMA’S biggest Aussie shows to date, packed full of crowd favourites like Delete, Silver, The End, Step Up The Morphine and more. It’s been a long wait for fans of the Junk Truck Head trio, who’ve carved themselves an enviable career as one of Australia’s biggest selling live acts.

WA show update: Unfortunately, due to changes to density limits and restrictions regarding live music venues in WA, DMA’S show at Fremantle Arts Centre on Sunday 3 April is postponed. Fans should hold onto their tickets, as they’ll be valid for a new date (set to be revealed soon). Ticketholders will be sent information direct via ticketing agency Oztix, be sure to follow the Perth Facebook event for show updates.

Announced today and joining DMA’S on tour as special guests are:

Adelaide opener is SA’s Wedding Motel. Blending eerie-sad-disco with dystopian-folk motifs, Wedding Motel recently made their live debut supporting punkers Pist Idiots and draw from a wide range of influence: think “Martin Newell associated bands of the 70’s and 80’s (Stray Trolleys/Cleaners From Venus), Leonard Cohen’s Death of a Ladies Man and the sardonic mumblings of David Berman”. Kinked pop songs smothered in a hangover.

Sydney and Melbourne: Hayley Mary transitioned from frontwoman of The Jezabels to fully fledged solo artist in 2020, via killer singles such as The Piss, The Perfume, the anthemic Like A Woman Should, and triple j regular Would You Throw A Diamond?. Mary’s most recent release is her third solo EP, Fall In Love, co-recorded with DMA’S’ Johnny Took.

In Brisbane, DMA’S will be joined by special guest THE RIOT. The radical trio launched back in 2020 via their thunderous debut Dog In The Shade, which featured the talents of Matt Corby and Alex Henriksson. Unburdened by genre, THE RIOT are here to disrupt prescriptive notions of genre in a stale music ecosystem.

One thing is for certain: DMA’S put on one hell of a show. With remaining show tickets almost gone, grab them before they all go!
