Sydney rock trio DMA’S are the third act selected to play at the MTV Unplugged Melbourne concert series.
DMA’S are Tommy O’Dell (vocals), Johnny Took (guitars) and Matt Mason (guitarist and backing vocalist).
DMA’S said “We’re excited to be playing a special set for MTV Unplugged in Melbourne. It’s great to see Unplugged has launched in Australia we’re stoked to be a part of it”.
To be filmed in St. Kilda, it will air in November.
Since the release of their ARIA nominated debut LP ‘Hills End’ in 2016, DMA’S have been adorned with an abundance of praise from around the world, as critics and fans alike are drawn to their undeniably recognisable brand of guitar-driven pop anthems. The band’s debut single ‘Delete’ achieved gold status in Australia in 2017, following on from their much-loved cover of Cher’s ‘Believe’ performed for triple j’s ‘Like A Version’ amassing over 4million views on YouTube, and charting at #6 in the Hottest 100 – the highest charting ‘Like A Version’ cover of all time.
Between stints in the studio, the band has toured non-stop throughout the world playing sold out headline shows across the UK and Europe and billings on some of the world’s biggest festivals including Coachella, Reading & Leeds, Fuji Rock, a surprise set at Glastonbury in 2016 and Splendour in the Grass and Laneway Festival on home soil.
Earning the seal of approval from industry leaders, DMA’S latest gloriously uplifting second album, ‘For Now’ is a record of beautifully honed, passionately emotive rock’n’roll songs.
MTV Unplugged Melbourne: DMA’S will be the third episode of the Grammy® and Emmy® award-winning “MTV Unplugged” franchise ever filmed in Australia. The intimate fan event will be filmed in front of a live audience on Thursday October 11 in the heart of St Kilda at Memo Music Hall. The live event will hosted by Ash London, from the Hit Network’s Ash London Live.
