Up-and-coming Cavan-based indie band, The Radioactive Grandma, are getting busy and getting animated, literally!
Straight off the back of playing live shows at the summer's biggest music festival, Electric Picnic, where the Cavan trio rocked the Jimmy Lee's Juke Joint not once, but twice, and the Oxfam sponsored Oxjam Tent, but the band will be raising a pint of the black stuff to Arthur Guinness himself after they were asked to play in Whelan's in Dublin to mark Arthur's Day later this month.
The boys are brewing up a storm in the capital for the auspicious September 27 date, and are also playing the Captain's Live gig at Captain America's in Blanchardstown along with many other of the country's finest rising bands, including HyperGiants, Handsome Handsome, Bennet v Matrix, Attic Walls, Knots, Hoodwinked, Deco Greene and more.
Add to that a recent gig in The Spirit Store in Dundalk, a live studio session with Dublin's Near FM on September 20 and a busy month is rounded off with a supporting role to Entheos at The Workman's Club, Dublin in September 30.
One would think with such a hectic schedule that any band would look to rest for a bit, but if anything, The Radioactive Grandma are getting more animated than ever, and are doing so with their new animated music video to mark the official release of their song 'Another Wasted Line'.
"It should be ready within the next couple of weeks. We're gonna do a pre-release promo too, to try and get some hype for it. We had a great response from each show at Electric Picnic which was amazing," Grandma's singer and guitarist Johno Leader tells The Celt. "We've been very busy since and it's not letting up at all - which is fine by us," says Johnno.
