Modern rock alchemists Dead Girls Academy have announced a headline UK and European tour for this summer, bringing their own brand of blistering rock and roll to the UK and EU for the first time headlining here in over a year. The tour follows on from a wildly successful EU rampage with P.O.D. and Alien Ant Farm in Winter 2019.

DGA will also be releasing new music this year and, as a taster, have released their new single “This Is War”, which follows the band’s successful debut album Alchemy which was released late 2018 and has over 4.2 million streams to date and saw DGA tour with the likes of Issues, Motionless in White, Badflower and Falling in Reverse along with a stint on 2017 Vans Warped Tour.

Frontman Michael Orlando comments; “I am beyond excited to return to the UK & EU for our second headlining tour! I absolutely love the energy out there! We will be bringing our new live show featuring a bunch of new songs; including our new single “This Is War” I cannot thank our fans enough for their continued support. I know this tour will be a massive success thanks to them, see you all in May!”

“I’ve always been on the darker side of rock & roll and the name fits the sound and overall image. It’s a double metaphor – one referring to the feeling of death inside yourself, the second mirroring departed relationships. All congregated under one institution, myself.” comments Michael Orlando.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
