DMA’S have released the WILLARIS. K REMIX of their single LIFE IS A GAME OF CHANGING from the forthcoming album THE GLOW, due for release on 10 July.
At the end of April DMA’S live-streamed their entire headline show from London O2 Brixton Academy, during the week they had been due to begin their UK headline tour. The response was fantastic with over 50,000 fans streaming the show.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CHANGING is a perfect touchstone of what to expect from their third studio album; an exhilarating rush of big beat dynamics, sun-kissed Balearic dance vibes, and a guitar-meets-electro hybrid of latter-day New Order. It furthers the DMA’S incorporation of digital beats and sequencers in their songwriting process and, in this remix, the upcoming Australian producer WILLARIS. K adds his signature touch of electronic dance beats.
THE GLOW was produced and mixed by Grammy award-winning producer STUART PRICE [Madonna, The Killers, New Order] in the historic Westlake Recording Studios, a long way from the band’s early days in Sydney. From their emotive heart to their towering hooks, the core traits that have earned DMA’S a huge following are still prominent in their new album, but their anthemic sound is now infused with a euphoric flood of alt-pop flair with pulsating synths and taut beats, while the huge choruses will prove to be electrifying highlights of future live shows.
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 and cassette when purchased through the band’s store at: https://dmas.lnk.to/storePR

DMA’S are Tommy O’Dell, Matt Mason and Johnny Took. The band 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 the second album FOR NOW cemented them as a force globally. The first 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 last year’s MTV UNPLUGGED LIVE album.
FOR NOW, released in 2018, achieved their highest UK chart position of #13, boosted by huge ongoing support at daytime radio. An impressive 40,000 tickets were sold on their headline UK tours in 2019, and they 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.
