We've been a little tardy in updating our news this last month as it's been non stop action here at the CWB office so here is a quick rundown on what's been and will be happening!
The Strypes second album, Little Victories, was released and went top 10 in the UK and No.1 in Ireland . They kick off their UK and Ireland tour in Derry on 23rd September and continue on a sold out run until Mid October before heading to Japan and Europe. In other Strypes news, in a moment we could have never foreseen when we met them in a field in Cavan a few short years ago, they last week met Donatella Versace - enclosed is the photographic proof !
After a sold out show at the Academy on September 24, The Strypes have announced their next Dublin gig for Saturday January 30, 2016 at the Olympia Theatre. Tickets go on sale for this show HERE on Monday September 28 at 9 a.m.!
A rip-roaring live return to Electric Picnic which you can see loads of photos of over at www.legalaxie.net and the imminent UK release of Love System this Friday 25th have kept your favourite dancefloor tearjerkers busy. BBC Radio 1 have been supporting the track and the video debuts this Friday. In other news, they will be joining Chic, Jamie XX and Mark Ronson at Dublin's new Metropolis Festival on the first weekend of November before heading to the UK and France to play the amazing Transmusicales Festival in Rennes. These gigs align with the worldwide release of Le Club on 27th November. Before all that excitement, they head back to New York City to play a brace of shows around CMJ in Mid October.
Maud in Cahoots
Maud in Cahoots brand new single "Cure for the Crazy" is out this Friday and you can preview it over here. You can request it now on all Irish radio stations. They celebrated with a sold out Grand Social last Saturday and you can catch them at the HWCH festival on the weekend of 1,2,3 October in Dublin.
Kormac just finished a massive commission for Jameson which saw him compose a found sounds audio and video project which was then performed live in the historic Midleton Distillery . He emerges from the studio this October and November to play the Cork Jazz Festival, Metropolis and a brace of French dates.
This year's Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow at Electric Picnic was a complete roadblock from afternoon to early morning every single day of the festival with stellar guest slots from The Sultans of Ping, Fight Like Apes, The Strypes and Kid Karate along with over 200 other performers. The End of the World Party on the Sunday with Jerry and the band was just the insanity you’d expect! The big news is that that insanity is now going on the road with a brace of Jerry Fish’s Electric Sideshow doing a winter tour opening up with a show at the Cork Opera House for the Jazz Festival on October 23rd with 3 more shows to be announced next week.
That's about it for it for now!
