Death by Denim signs with ADA/Warner Music
Death by Denim start a new life with ADA/Warner Music.
The Perth-based indie four-piece strikes a deal with the major music company ahead of the release next month of Moonbow, their second album.
“We are so excited to be teaming up with Warner Music/ADA to deliver the next crop of our musical madness,” reads a statement from the band on the signing, announced Friday (Feb. 4). “It is such an amazing opportunity, and we can’t wait to see where it takes us.”
Welcoming to the act to the music giant’s domestic roster, Dan Rosen, President of Warner Music Australasia, describes Death by Denim as “one of WA’s most exciting bands.”

To celebrate the new deal, Death by Denim release ‘Make It Up As We Go,’ their first on the label and the fourth cut from Moonbow, following ‘Small World,’ ‘Cause A Scene’ and ‘Feels Like Fiction’.
It’s a huge vote of confidence for a band that, in 2020, had three songs from their debut album Sleepless and Sunkissed
added to high rotation on triple j.
In the same year, the band signed to Paradigm Talent Agency for bookings in the U.K. and Europe, and was selected to showcase to the music industry at BIGSOUND50 and SXSW’s first digital festival.
Fan-faves ‘Cigarettes and Honey’ and ‘Wiggy’ have racked up 3.8 million combined streams on Spotify.

Their breakout happened in 2019, when Death by Denim opened Falls Festival Fremantle, signed for management with Lemon Tree Music and enjoyed radio spins on triple j and its sister network Unearthed with ‘Wiggy’.
Moonbow is due out March 18, and will be supported by a national tour kicking off Saturday, March 10 at Prince of Wales Hotel in Bunbury. Before that, dates this month on the Gold Coast and Kalgoorlie.
“We’ve decided to bite the bullet and continue on as usual with our national tour,” reads the band’s statement.
“We’ve missed our East Coast DBD family too much, so we are copping the quarantine when we get back home. Here’s hoping we don’t kill each other, wish us luck.”
