Dea Matrona Bring Their Debut Album Of Bold, Sensational Rock With A Modern Twist To Brighton's Hope & Ruin

Irish rock duo Dea Matrona will play the Hope & Ruin, Brighton, prior to the release of their debut album, For Your Sins. The announcement comes hand-in-hand with the release of brand new single, Stuck on You

With a crashing bassline and heavy instrumental groove, Stuck On You carries the band's ethos of bold, sensational rock with a modern twist. 

Catapulting and captivating, the song tells of being hopelessly drawn to someone's charm.

Dea Matrona say about the single: 

"'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 & see how people react in real life".

The band add about the album:  

"It's a record about trying to find ourselves & failing over & 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."
