Shouting At Planes launch their debut single Hospice next Monday, August 23 on iTunes, and celebrate that with a party on August 27 at CrawDaddy in Dublin.
Back from their performance at Glastonbury, Shouting at Planes have been gaining momentum through participation in national festivals and with their first single launch this month, these are exciting times for this Bailieboro five-piece.
Between gigs and festivals, the band fitted in some studio time in the prestigious Grouse Lodge Recording Studio in Westmeath, used by many worldwide names, including none other than Michael Jackson. Having put down two professional recordings, Shouting at Planes are now ready to take the next step up from their myspace demos, to get some real airplay and make a name for themselves in the Irish charts.
Bassist Garreth Tackney said: "Having won the competition to play at Glastonbury, the first thing we had to do was develop a polished live show... which took a lot of thought, because we wanted to give a unique performance. It involved working the crowd through two front men, sharing the chance to take melodies and often including powerful harmony lines."
So, where's their first album? Aodhan McBreen: "We're not there yet. This first single is a big step for us, and launching it with the music video in CrawDaddy at the end of the month will be an important milestone. There'll be DJs and journalists there, so it's a great chance to make an impression, and if our previous gigs in CrawDaddy are anything to go by, we're confident it will be a good one."
