UK band Demob Happy hits Toronto Nov 18

Alternative rock band Demob Happy from England are jumping into their fall tour of North America beginning in Mexico and ending in Toronto on November 18, 2023. The group is playing Adelaide Hall in downtown Toronto (250 Adelaide Street West) on the 18th, with doors open at 6pm and the concert starting at 7pm. Photo at top is Demob Happy's Divine Machines Album Art, provided by the group.

With 27 cities on the fall 2023 'The Divine Machines' tour taking place in just over one month the band must certainly believe in what doesn't kill you must make you stronger! The band features singer-bassist Matthew Marcantonio, drummer Thomas Armstrong and guitarist Adam Godfrey who formed the group in Newcastle upon Tyne in 2008.

“We’re really excited about reconnecting with a lot of the awesome fans we haven't seen in years,” Mercantonio says. “America has always welcomed us with open arms, and we love touring the beautiful vast vistas. It's a dream for any UK band, and this time feels no different." On being asked to open for DFA 1979, he smiles and replies, “We're very excited and humbled. They've been one of our favorite bands forever and one of the bands we bonded over in Demob’s early days. They're heroes of ours. We're psyched!”

Adelaide Hall is a perfect place to get to know the band as the venue showcases some of the best live music and upcoming artists in Toronto. You can catch some of their songs as described by their publicist, "You can get a feel for the album with its raucous first single “Voodoo Science,” doomsday follow-up “Run Baby Run”, and their new single “Sweet & Sour America.” Released in advance of their upcoming North American tour – their first venture Stateside since 2019 - the single highlights the band’s penchant for riff-driven rhythms wrapped around Velcro-y melodic hooks."

I love the comments on their Youtube channel including this one from JohnHyattfilms, "Really love this band. This song (Haydes, Baby) is such a great example of a band growing into something greater. Come to Canada one day!" and from Kamciadek, "They are just sooooo good!!! Love all of their songs! If you have a chance of seeing them on stage: DO IT!!!"

Kevin and Sabrina will be at the concert and will update us after the show.
