Sabian Artist Matt McGuire Offers Sound Advice
Aussie Matt McGuire is pushing boundaries as all three for The Chainsmokers on their World War Joy Tour
Matt Mcguire, Drummer and Musical Director for The Chainsmokers, is now playing SABIAN Cymbals exclusively. A former member of Bombs Away, the 25-year-old Australian drummer has become an online sensation, amassing over 1.3 million subscribers on YOUTUBE. His channel features viral cover videos of tracks by Marshmello, Skrillex, The Weekend, Linkin Park, Twenty One Pilots, and The Chainsmokers. In total, Matt has racked up over 233 million views (and still counting), with 54 of those videos eclipsing the 1 million views mark.
Earlier this year, the Chainsmokers announced that their “WORLD WAR JOY” North American headline arena tour would began in Autumn 2019. The 41-city tour launched late September in Cincinnati, OH, making stops in major arenas across the U.S. and Canada before finishing in Vancouver, BC on December 6. Multi-platinum band 5 Seconds of Summer (featured on the Chainsmokers’ latest single “Who Do You Love,”) and pop star Lennon Stella will be joining them for all the dates.
Having his hands full in stage design, music directing and performing you would think that he would be satisfied with it all however, Matt is just getting started. Check out the video below:
Matt’s current set-up includes a 19” HHX X-Treme Crash, an 18” HHX Evolution O-Zone Crash, and a 20” HHX Evolution Crash; 10” AAX Aero and HHX Evolution Splashes; 14” HHX Evolution Hats with a 14” AAX Frequency X-hat; a 21” HHX Groove Ride and a 19” AA Holy China; and a 16” XSR O-zone Crash stacked over a 14” Custom Shop Mini O-zone China.
