“I cannot thank John 5 enough for having us aboard his sold out tour, and getting to play for his audience was a very special experience that we will never forget,” vocalist Michael Orlando said in a press release. “And we’re back to work, thrilled to get out on the road to play for all our fans and give them the full Dead Girls Academy experience! We will be playing 10 songs off of Alchemy, which I’m very stoked about.”
When asked about what DGA has planned for the rest of 2019, Orlando said, “After the John 5 tour, we played a few festivals but our main drive and ambition was looking towards album number two. We learned a lot playing live and watching our favorite bands so we are taking that knowledge into the studio and currently we are finishing up the writing process. I’m excited for everyone to hear what we’ve been cooking up. I have no doubt it will take DGA into a whole new stratosphere. I’m very proud of it and we are getting ready for a giant 2020!”
