Indie rock trio Demob Happy return with explosive new single ‘Mother Machine’, their first new music for 2020.

The band have also announced their first shows of 2020 with UK headline dates in collaboration with DIY Magazine for Independent Venue Week.

Following 2019 single releases ‘Autoportrait’ and ‘Less Is More’, ‘Mother Machine’ sees the former Artist Spotlight band Demob Happy complete the trilogy delving headfirst into futuristic sonic realms, rewiring sprawling space-rock with a fierce and direct dynamic energy.

Speaking of the track, frontman Matt Marcantonio states: “These last three singles have been like a trilogy, expressing things I’ve felt over the most intense year of touring I think we’ll ever do, and things I’ve learned about where we’re all going.

“I wanted to leave ‘Mother Machine’ ’til last as there’s a lot of new sounds in it, and I like what it says about the future.”

‘Mother Machine’ debuted on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show as the first Maida Vale session of 2020. Fans can also expect performances of ‘Autoportrait’, ‘Be Your Man’ and a special rendition of ‘Less Is More’ featuring a cover of Daft Punk’s ‘Robot Rock’.

Demob Happy are currently recording the anticipated new album to follow 2018’s ‘Holy Doom’. See them live for Independent Venue Week in association with DIY Magazine at the dates below. Tickets are available HERE.
