The single marks the first new material since Sketch (Matthew Coleman) left the DJ / Producer duo, with Tommy Shades (Thomas Coleman) now taking over the project as a one-man team.
Over the last twelve years, the world-renowned Australian duo landed platinum records, topped the charts and toured the world with some of the biggest names in dance music. With Tommy going solo, ‘Bombs Away’ shows no signs of slowing down. “I’m really excited to show our fans what’s next for Bombs Away,” states Tommy. “I’ve got so many projects, singles, videos and ideas everywhere and I just can’t wait to start this next chapter.”
Tommy starts off this new solo chapter with a bang as he delivers the heavy hitting: ‘Don’t You Dare.’ The track blends the heavy electro and slap house sound Bombs Away is known for, with an emotional and infectious hook delivered by Tommy. “The creative process behind this project was over a year long and hit after the ending of a very serious relationship. The lyrics basically wrote themselves, but it took multiple experimentations in the studio, to find the right energy and really give the song a feeling of empowerment, which was found through the driving bassline.” – Tommy Shades
Supported by an upcoming music video entirely shot by Tommy, ‘Don’t You Dare’ shows a new side to the Bombs Away sound and perfectly follows up their 2021 singles ‘Love Magic’ and ‘In My Head.’
Bombs Away have had a stellar career to date, since their 2010 break-out hit and certified Gold record: ‘Big Booty Bitches.’ They quickly followed up with the Platinum records: ‘Party Bass’ and ‘Super Soaker’ and the Billboard charting ‘Better Luck Next Time.’ They have over 350 Million plays on their videos and music across all socials, streaming platforms and they hold down five concurrent Top 10 tracks on ARIA, Billboard, iTunes and Beatport charts. Over the years the duo collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Mr. Worldwide himself – Pitbull and the likes of: Krafty Kuts, The Potbelleez and Luciana.
Most recently they released a remix of Maddox Jones’ ‘Can’t Wait for the Summer’ and the reimagined take on Des’ree’s 90’s hit: ‘You Gotta Be’ the latter of which broke onto the Billboard Dance charts. Tommy Shades also recently joined the American / Australian production group RIP Youth, working on their recent hit single ‘Fake’ (feat. Ranger). Tommy has a lot of music and collaborations in the works, as he takes over Bombs Away as a solo project. Be sure to follow him on social media and get ready for the next bomb to drop.
