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.
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!
We’re thrilled to announce Mollie Coddled is going to be our support for our York show at the end of the month.
Hailing from the North, Mollie Coddled is a solo lofi/ dream pop guitarist and singer from York. Being heavily influenced by the bedroom pop scene, Mollie records and produces all of her songs in her bedroom, making her music feel more intimate.
To get a ticket, please head to our store. See you March 30.
The Saint Ishmael tour is going swimmingly. We’ve played four gigs so far and they’ve all been belters. We’re grateful to everyone who’s come out and watched a show, bought a record or had a boogie. Those who’ve done all three are true dukes.
In the coming weeks we’ve got Birmingham [TICKETS] Fri March 8, Sheffield [FACEBOOK EVENT] Friday March 29 and York [TICKETS] Saturday March 30. You can see the April and May dates of the tour on our gigs page.
See you on the road,
We’re excited to be on the Honey Box live show later this week. It’s the start of our tour for Saint Ishmael and our first time appearing on the show. You can get tickets to come and watch us live (in Newcastle-Under-Lyme 16.00-17.00 on Sunday 17 Feb) from this ticket link. Or watch it live streamed on the day via this Facebook page.
We’re going on tour!
From February to May we’ll be heading up and down the M6 to get our new music into your ears. The Saint Ishmael tour will take in some of our favourite haunts and also new venues and cities. You can view all the dates on our shows page. We hope to see as many of you as possible out on the road.
Some shows are ticketed, some are free, we’ll be releasing the specifics for each show over the coming days. There will be Facebook Event pages on the DCMI Facebook page.
Our third album ‘Saint Ishmael’ will be released on vinyl and streaming services on Friday 22 February 2019. You can pre-order it from our store and from DROMA’s Bandcamp. The album features the fiery single ‘Blood Is Thicker’.
This Saturday (August 11) is something truly special. We are very lucky to be the last band to play whilst the Market Vaults, Stafford (spiritual home of DCMI offshoot Taskrz) whilst it us under the management of the wonderful Oli Kendall. Oli has championed original and interesting live music at the Vaults for years now, so we really want to give him an incredible send off. There are bands on throughout the day, so you could come down to the Vaults and make a day of it:
17.00 - Keshanadram
19.30 - Big Joe Bone
21.20 - Don't Call Me Ishmael
See you down there,
What an amazing weekend! We played two incredible shows, headlining Friday night in Birmingham and then an opening slot at The Underground on Saturday night. Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket and came out on some very wet and cold nights.
The running project that Gary and JT have started was meant to have its first chapter completed on Sunday morning, but due to the rubbish weather the Stafford Half Marathon has been pushed back to April. However, we did manage to record some documentary interviews that will form the backbone of the film about running and being in a band.
We are back live on May 1 at The Glebe, Stoke and then Lymelight Festival a few days later. We're starting work on our next batch of songs, with a view to release a single in the next couple of months.
