The “Muppets gone dark rock”-inspired video for “Dead Dreamers” is sure to gain as much praise as the single itself. NME said “There are hints of ‘Showbiz’-era Muse and pre-stadium Biffy Clyro. In other words, Demob Happy are rock giants in the making.” The Guardian astutely applauded the band as “a joyride through rock’s sleazier back alleys.” With the fuzzy guitars, bouncing bass, and frontman Matt Marcantonio’s ability to emote the gritty and the pretty aspects of madness and euphoria conveyed in the track.
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 their upcoming album.
Confirmed to support The Cribs across the UK at shows including London’s The Forum on May 18th, Demob Happy will also support Gang Of Youths in May, all dates listed below.
Demob Happy is Matt Marcantonio (vocals / bass), Adam Godfrey (guitar / vocals), and Thomas Armstrong (drums / vocals). “Dead Dreamers” was produced by Tom Dalgety, and fans can check out more about Demob Happy here: http://demob-happy.com.
