UK's DEMOB HAPPY have released their new single "Dead Dreamers" through Atlantic Records' US imprint, Taste and Tone. The marks the first piece of music since the band's 2015 debut album Dream Soda.
“The world tried to set itself on fire the last year, us included,” frontman Matt Marcantonio explains. “We had to mutate and figure out what this band was, so we just wrote and wrote until we knew. 'Dead Dreamers' is a reflection of that. We expelled our demons, along with the worlds’. We wrote the best stuff we've ever written.”
With their debut single heralded as “a joyride through rock’s sleazier back alleys” by The Guardian, Demob Happy have asserted themselves as an unstoppable sonic force since their inception. From playing basements gigs in their own coffee shop-come-studio HQ, the Nowhere Man Café, sold-out headline shows across the UK and Europe, and appearances at Reading &Leeds, The Great Escape and SXSW, the band makes no plan on stopping their upward trajectory. Looking ahead, Demob Happy are currently working with Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood) on a new album.
