Demob Happy, although being originally from Newcastle, are BIMM Music Institute Brighton alumni. The band released their debut EP You Shook the Soul in May 2011 and follow up single Rattlesnake in February 2012.
Their first physical release came in the form of the 7″ single Succubus in November 2014 via their own label Milk Parlour Records.
In April 2015 the band released their first EP for new record label So Recordings in the form of the limited edition Record Store Day release Young & Numb EP on 10″ vinyl.
Their debut studio album, Dream Soda, caught the attention of DIY Magazine, giving the album 4 out of 5 stars calling it a “Frantic, f***ed-up mission statement to rival the best of this year”.
In late 2016, the band embarked on a co-headline tour with fellow-Brighton-based band Tigercub and then later released their new single Dead Dreamers which was produced by Tom Dalgety and released via Atlantic Records imprint Taste & Tone.
On 23 March 2018, the band released their second album Holy Doom, which was preceded by the singles Be Your Man and Loosen It. This time, the album was given 5 out of 5 stars by DIY Magazine. The band went on to support Jack White of the White Stripes on his UK tour.
The band co-own the Nowhere Man cafe in Brighton where they also rehearse in the basement.
