Legendary guitar-pop trio DM3 are set to tour Australia in April after a surge of interest in the band on iTunes.
DM3’s “Monsters of Jangle” Tour will be a rare chance for fans of the WA-based, internationally revered power-pop outfit too see them perform live in limited venues around Perth, Melbourne and Sydney ahead of a short tour of Japan.
“Monsters of Jangle” will showcase DM3’s ‘Best of’ vinyl release One Time Two Times Three Times More, a collection of explosive highlights from their five albums released on the respected Sydney based independent label Citadel Records from 1993-2002.
Formed in 1992 by The Stems’ founder songwriter Dom Mariani, The original line-up of DM3 includes Summer Suns’ drummer Pascal Barlolone and Someloves’ bassist Toni Italiano. Together they are revered worldwide for an explosive sound that fuses melodic pop hooks, cool vocals and high energy rock’n’roll guitar.
DM3’s first two albums One Time Two Times Three Times Red Light (1993) and Road to Rome (1996) were produced by the legendary Mitch Easter (REM, Pavement, Velvet Crush) and lauded by critics and fans alike as two of the world’s best in power pop genre. Album number three Rippled Soul (1998) put Mariani’s unrivalled skill as a songwriter front and centre and won legions more fans at home and in Europe and the USA.
The renewed popularity of DM3 has seen their first three albums reissued on iTunes along with the brilliant new Live in Denmark – the Roskilde Festival, a previously unreleased recording of DM3’s explosive performance at one of the world’s iconic rock festivals.

Super Real marks a coming of age for The DomNicks. Forged by Perth based Dom Mariani and Nick Sheppard, the band is a powerful blend of swagger ‘n’ roll rock, soul and pop smarts. Mariani is best known as the driving force behind The Stems, DM3 and The Someloves, while Sheppard’s pedigree boasts 80’s Bristol punks The Cortinas and thereafter as Mick Jones’ replacement in the 1983-86 line-up of The Clash.
In 2007 the pair teamed up with Howard Shawcross (The Elks, The Riptides) on bass and Marz Frisina on drums, quickly developing into a very ‘hang loose’ combo. Playing a mix of Dom and Nick's originals with a spread of 60's and 70's garage and soul classics, they are a band of seasoned players punching well above their collective musical weight.
The DomNicks debut album Super Real is out on Citadel Records and continues in the tradition of The DomNicks’ previous recording, Hey Rock 'n' Roller (Off The Hip 2009). Expanding on Hey Rock ‘n' Roller’s gutsy guitar driven sound, Super Real takes a ride through blues, soul, funk, and classic guitar pop influences to create one seamless musical journey fuelled by the vim and vigour of a noble era. Its bound to cause the head and heart to shake.
