getting it all in writing. 

The group remains with I OH YOU in Australia and New Zealand. Michael Goldstone, founder of Mom+Pop, which also has fellow-Aussie Flume, said, “We’ve been huge fans of DMA’s even before Julia (Willinger) released the single ‘Laced’ via our imprint, Mermaid Avenue. After seeing them live last fall, it took us all of about one song into their set to aggressively pursue them for the U.S.”

The act is announced for Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball and Boston Calling, with more dates to be added. It is booked by Kevin French of Paradigm for North America, and Ben Winchester of Primary for Europe where it toured last year to support from the UK media including BBC1 and the New Musical Express.

Hard rock band Massive signed with TKO for North America and Europe/UK with plans to return to tour these territories this year behind debut album Full Throttle. The act’s management, Rick Butterworth’s Third Verse, also signed them to Premier Artists for Australia.

Fellow hard rock outfit Dead City Ruins is moving to base itself in Europe after inking a worldwide deal with Germany’s Metalville Records.
