Sydney rockers DMA’S are the next band to grace the MTV Unplugged stage, with the group recording their own special next month.

Earlier this year, it was announced that after almost 30 years, MTV Unplugged was finally going to make its Australian debut. With career-defining sets from acts such as Nirvana, Alice In Chains, and Lauryn Hill already in the archives, our Aussie artists clearly had some big shoes to fill.

However, stepping up to the plate for the debut episode of the new series was none other than local legends Gang Of Youths, who stripped back their epic sound to give us an incredibly unique performance.

Then, Amy Shark took to the stage, delivering stunning tracks from her debut album, along with a cover of the iconic ’00s hit ‘Teenage Dirtbag’.

Now, DMA’S are set to be the next group to perform on the iconic program.

Having released their second album, For Now, earlier this year, the Sydney trio have been kicking goals all over the place, selling out shows globally and turning themselves into one of Australia’s most beloved bands.

“We’re excited to be playing a special set for MTV Unplugged in Melbourne,” the group explained. “It’s great to see Unplugged has launched in Australia we’re stoked to be a part of it.”

Kicking off in just under a month, the group are set to take over St Kilda’s Memo Music Hall on October 11th, where they will perform a set full of classic bangers in a stripped back style. Considering how popular their acoustic Like A Version performance of Cher’s ‘Believe’ was, you better believe this is going to be one to watch out for.

There’s currently no word as to when this performance will be hitting our screens, but you can be sure that we’ll be giving you all the details when they come to light.
