There’s a UK tour next month, although at the moment “UK” means “London”, but more dates may be added:
25-Feb London Bardens Boudoir
26-Feb London White Light @ Lexington
27-Feb London The Rest Is Noise
02-Mar London White Heat @ Madam JoJos
Anyway, the press release is here:
Released on February 15th via Sub Pop Records (SP869) ‘Jail La La’ is the first, and rather fine blissed-out pop 7” single taken from the Dum Dum Girls debut album, I Will Be (Sub Pop, March 29th). The single will be backed with ‘Play With Fire’ a track which is exclusive to this release and does not appear on the album.
Featured as the #1 best band at 2009’s CMJ festival, Dum Dum Girls have confirmed their FIRST UK shows in February for a series of dates across the capital.
Having released an EP on Captured Tracks, a 7-inch on Hozac and a CD EP on Zoo Music, the Dum Dum Girls churn out blissful pop that falls somewhere between The Ramones and the Ronettes. Which, in our opinion, is a very good thing.
Produced by Dee Dee and Richard Gottehrer (Strangeloves, Voidoids, Blondie, The Go-Gos and, more recently, The Raveonettes), I Will Be is neither lo-fi nor too polished. Just eleven songs in under thirty minutes -- it’s a short tribute to love, fun and the classic pop form of the ’60’s girl groups and early punk rockers.
