Dea Matrona come to The Joiners, Southampton, in May

Irish rock duo Dea Matrona have announced the release of their debut album ‘For Your Sins’, out 3rd May. The announcement comes hand-in-hand with the release of brand new single “Stuck on You”, plus an extensive tour of the UK and Ireland, bringing them to Southampton’s Joiners in May.

 Stuck On You carries the band’s ethos of bold, sensational rock with a modern twist. The song tells of being hopelessly drawn to someone’s charm.

Dea Matrona say: “Stuck on You basically wrote itself after multiple insomniac nights. After taking a break from touring, we both locked ourselves away for a while and I think this song sums up how crazy it drove us. It was initially written as an instrumental and it was the most challenging track on the record to produce. It will be very exciting to bring these songs on the road with us in May and see how people react in real life”.

Dea Matrona also say about the album For Your Sins: “It’s a record about trying to find ourselves and failing over and over again until we realised that part of the fun of being in Dea Matrona is that we’ll never really know who we are or what we want to say”.

Dea Matrona comprises two school friends, Mollie McGinn and Orlaith Forsythe, who grew up busking to their favourite rock ‘n’ roll anthems on the streets of Belfast. Covering the likes of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love and Simon & Garfunkel’s Homeward Bound, they have reached an online community of 500,000 followers and racked up over 8 million views on YouTube. With their hard hitting riffs and musical intensity they have established a rare, sensational sound – gritty and real but loaded with melody and style, which has so far garnered support from Clash, The New Cue, The Independent, MusicRadar and more.

The band have announced a full UK and Ireland tour for May 2024 to celebrate the release of their album..
