NEW SINGLE JAIL LA LA on FEBRUARY 15th
DEBUT UK SHOWS FROM 25TH FEBRUARY and
ALBUM I WILL BE ON MARCH 29th
Released on February 15th via Sub Pop Records (SP869) Jail La La is the first, and rather fine blissed-out pop 7 single taken from the Dum Dum Girls debut album, I Will Be (Sub Pop, March 29th). The single will be backed with Play With Fire a track which is exclusive to this release and does not appear on the album.

The band have now also confirmed a show at the OLD BLUE LAST on 24th February.
Featured as the #1 best band at 2009s CMJ festival, Dum Dum Girls have confirmed their FIRST UK shows inFebruary for a series of dates across the capital.
Having released an EP on Captured Tracks, a 7-inch on Hozac and a CD EP on Zoo Music, the Dum Dum Girls churn out blissful pop that falls somewhere between The Ramones and the Ronettes. Which, in our opinion, is a very good thing.
Produced by Dee Dee and Richard Gottehrer (Strangeloves, Voidoids, Blondie, The Go-Gos and, more recently, The Raveonettes), I Will Be is neither lo-fi nor too polished. Just eleven songs in under thirty minutes -- its a short tribute to love, fun and the classic pop form of the 60s girl groups and early punk rockers.
