We were recently featured in the Irish Punk edition of the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. Being included alongside The Tossers, The Go Set, The Real McKenzies and The Mahones is a real honor. You can check it out here:
The Mahones at The Pyramid Scheme
We’re pretty excited to announce that we’re going to be taking the stage on August 16th, 2014 atThe Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids, MI as a supporting act for The Mahones during their mid-western leg of their U.S. summer tour for 2014.
With nine classic albums under their belt, the band experienced a tremendous surge in popularity upon the release of their 10th album, The Black Irish. It was voted Best Punk Album at The Independent Music Awards (USA), and the band’s hit song “Paint The Town Red” was featured in the climactic final fight scene of Academy Award winning film The Fighter. The band was determined to follow-it up with an even bigger, better sound. Their 11th studio album, Angels & Devils, certainly rose to the challenge. It was the 2012 winner of Best Irish Punk Album, as voted by leading worldwide Irish Punk authorities Shite N Onions (USA), Paddy Rock Radio (USA), Punk.ie (Ireland) and Vandala Concepts (Canada). It made the top 100 new releases on iTunes worldwide, and the top 10 in Germany.
With songs that have become the essential soundtrack to every Irish punk out there, young and old, The Mahones have found themselves growing with every year, and are now headlining festivals around the world, and sharing the stage with their musical heroes. The Mahones are proud to have a long list of TV and movie appearances from their growing repertoire of Irish punk classics.
For the past 24 years, The Mahones have released a slew of successful albums, and are world-renowned for an energy-packed, electrifying live show that has garnered them a worldwide base of dedicated fans.
We are excited to be sharing a stage with them. Tickets are available now $10 advanced. Come on out and support great live music.
We’re pretty excited that we’re going to be appearing at Moonrunners Music Festival in Chicago, IL on April 25-26 2014. This is the second year of the event and it packs in a ton of big names like The Goddamn Gallows, Hellbound Glory, and Scott H. Biram along with a whole host of others. Tickets are available HERE
