Fuck that was one long winter!
We’ve been very quiet for the last few months, you could say we were hibernating, if by hibernating you mean locked away working on new music & a new show for the summer. We definitely havn’t been slacking off since since our last gig in December.
We’re almost ready to take the show in the road. Our first stop will be on May 12th in The Limelight in Belfast and then a week later we’re off to the Roisin Dubh in Galway. Then the summer festivals start with a trip to the UK. During the summer we’ll get to take the show as far afield as a disused airport in the Czech Republic and as close to home as a disused gasworks in Waterford (supporting Basement Jaxx!). All in all, we can’t wait to get back out playing again.
More dates will be added below as they get confirmed (and we’re allowed to say!).
Our first festival outing is in Derbyshire at Bearded Theory. We’ve a really good slot on the Thursday night. If you’re going please say hi :). Festival website.
Our first time in the Czech Republic, we’ve heard they’re a bit mad which really suits us. The Prodigy headline the night we’re there. Check out their site here, it looks great and almost guaranteed sunshine!
One of our highlights last year was this festival in Macroom. Such a good vibe about the place and they’ve announced an excellent line up including Leftfield, Sister Sledge, Mungo’s Hi-fi, General Levy and the Stanton Warriors. Check out their full line up here and then go buy yourself a ticket. The below is from our set there last year, we didn’t even know there was fire up above us until we saw this photo!
These lads took a chance and booked us years ago and we played on the back of a truck at 2 in the morning! We’ve since graduated from back of truck to a tent and throw in the fact our biggest ever headline show was in Cork last year, we’re expecting big things from our return trip to Deer Farm. Check out the line-up here and the below image is from the Cork Opera House in October last year.
We’re doing just two dates in Dublin dates this year (the other being a headline gig at The Olympia in October) and this date in Dun Laoghaire. We’ve been to the festival as punters in previous years and if we get the weather it will be a fantastic gig. Orbital, St. Germain and the Sugarhill Gang play the same day as us or you can make a weekend of it with 2 weekend tickets for the price of 1, get them here until the end of April.
August is shaping up to a busy month this summer, and we stop off at the Canal Quarter Festival on Saturday the 18th. Tickets are on sale now from here.
We round off the month with a big gig on our doorstep as Daytripper takes place on the last weekend of the month. We’re playing the Saturday night along with Jenny Greene, Billy Scurry, Johnny Moy and the headlines Basement Jaxx. We’ve had some good times at Daytripper, and not to mention last summers gig at Spraoi which was unreal last year. Now if we can have a repeat of that weather! Tickets from here.
As more dates get confirmed we’ll add them here.
