Dumb Announce Double A-side Single 'Supersonic Love Toy' / 'Two Bottles' Released On 24th February 2014 Plus UK Tour Details

The latest act to explode out of Birmingham is Dumb with their raw, unsettling sound. Their debut single 'Dive' set out their stall in April, distinguishing the band from the rest of what their hometown was offering. Influenced by Pixies and cult American indie rock heroes Built To Spill, its bold and brash combination of self-assured swagger, slick melodies and Dylan's rasping vocals caught the attention of the likes of NME and BBC Radio 1.

Next single 'Retina', which was released in August, continued that mission statement, an explosive riot of squalling guitars and cocksure attitude. It generated great online support from key tastemaker blogs sites and received plays on Radio 1, was playlisted at XFM and received extensive support from specialist regional radio shows.

For their first ever gig the band went straight to the prestigious stage of London's KOKO and the legendary Club NME night before returning home to headline Birmingham's O2 Academy 3. Last Autumn they joined The Agency Group roster and continued to build their live reputation by playing key slots with the likes of Darlia, Skaters, LSA, Superfood, Baby Strange, Splashh, Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs plus a memorable night opening their manager, Jon Brookes' memorial night at Royal Albert Hall with The Charlatans, The Vaccines & New Order in October.

During the recent winter months the band has recorded brand new tracks which have been produced in London by Cam Blackwood who has recently worked with Darlia, London Grammar & George Ezra. The two songs from this recording session, 'Super Sonic Love Toy' and 'Two Bottles', will be released as a double A side single on 24th February. The single will be supported by a UK tour including headline shows in London & Manchester and a sell out show at the bands local venue, The Hare and Hounds in Birmingham. More details below.

2014 will see Dumb continue to cement the foundations they've built, establishing themselves as one of the country's most promising new bands.
