New single 'Major, Major, Major, Major' out on Friday 30 August by Jack Tasker

MMMM Smalle.jpeg

We have a new single dropping on Friday 30 August. It’s Major, Major, Major, Major, which can be found on Saint Ishmael. This version is a new take, recorded at Silk Mill Recording Studios is Stoke. It’ll have a new video to accompany it as well.

For the music nerds who might curiously ask ‘What’s different on this version?’ - well it’s a little faster than the album take, Laura’s keyboard sound is more ‘spacey’ and less ‘Town Called Malice’, Tom plays a very tasty little lick at the end of the second verse and Duncan’s bass parts cut through a lot more. For non-music nerds…you might not notice!

The Catch-22 inspired artwork was designed by Rich Greene, who has been a creative partner of the band (and all its associated acts - TASKRZ ect) since 2012.

Big love,
Gary, Sophie, Laura, Tom, Duncan and Jack

DCMI are hitting the road again in the Autumn and Winter of 2019, playing up and down the UK, with a few special themed shows thrown in. More on that later in the week when we release our tour poster and dates.

The first night of the tour has been announced and it’s a Birmingham headline at The Flapper. You can join the Facebook event page or jump straight to buying tickets.

Our drummer for this gig will be the incredible Ash Clay, who has been helping us out this year in Sophie’s absence.

See you there!

Last gig of the Saint Ishmael tour tomorrow. by Jack Tasker

We’re sad to see the end of the Saint Ishmael tour - it’s been a blast that’s only gotten better from show to show. As a band we’ve changed during the three months we’ve been on and off the road, literally in terms of members coming and going, but also in terms of our music and playing style. It’s been great and we can’t wait to do it all again later in the year.

To wrap the tour up in style we’ll be finishing with a gig at The Glebe in Stoke for the well known Choose Days at The Glebe gig series. We’ve got support from Nick Sharratt at 21:00 and then we’ll go on about a half hour after that. It’s free so you have NO excuse to get down there, ready to celebrate with us.

There’s a Facebook event with gig details.

See you there.

Tickets for York show - March 30 by Jack Tasker

York Ticket.jpg

York is a very special place for a lot of the band. We’ve got really close friends there and it’s where TASKRZ (a sizeable portion of DCMI) cut their gigging teeth years ago.

With all that in mind we’re pumped that our tour is taking us to the Spark CIC in York on Saturday 30 March. We don’t have a support confirmed yet, but will do soon.

If you’re interested in coming along please buy a ticket via our web store.

See you there,

Surviving Storm Ishmael by Jack Tasker

The band were an emotional wreck on Friday. We had members stranded on the mean streets of Kings Heath, others carrying all their gear on the train and a saviour in the very likely shape of Adrian Tasker who battled the elements to get two of the band to Congelton Unplugged. Our gig for the festival was great, a tight blast through two 45 minute sets of our acoustic tunes. 

Stressful start aside this weekend was a high point for the band. Throughout Saturday we wrote and demo'd new material - including the blistering 'Blood is Thicker', which will be released as single in the coming months. In the evening we played a packed show at the Market Vaults, with support from the king of Stoke-on-Trent Merrym'n

Saturday's gig was amazing and we're really thankful for all those who braved the rubbish weather to come and listen to us. We hope you enjoyed it? 

Next stop is a headline slot in Birmingham on Friday 16 March at the Victoria (TICKETS) and then the day after we're at The Underground in Stoke (TICKETS).

Come down to either of these if you can.
