Sneak peek as Sons prep for upcoming tour

Gigs will see the band supported on stage by Cork's Big Boy Foolish

Bailieborough-born purveyors of post-punk Sons of Southern Ulster are back together on the same continent and busy preparing to play two upcoming concerts next month.

On social media, fans of the band were treated to a behind the scenes video of one of those practice sessions, from a shed in Co Clare, with a large Bailieborough sign sitting centre.

Sons of Southern Ulster- Justin Kelly (vocals), David Meagher (guitar), Noel ‘Skinhammer’ Larkin (drums) and Paddy Glackin (bass)- will play Dublin's Whelan's on Saturday, July 23, followed by a show at Mike the Pies in Listowel, Co Kerry on Friday, July 29.

Both gigs will see the band supported on stage by Cork's Big Boy Foolish.

SOSU, for short, have received widespread critical acclaim for their music, from RTE’s Paul McLoone and BBC 6, the Irish Times, and many more.

The band's second and latest release Sinners and Lost Souls features artwork by legendary artist Claus Castenskiold whose work has adorned such iconic albums as the Fall’s Perverted By Language, and Mother Juno by the Gun Club.

“Meanwhile, in a disused shed in Co. Clare the Sons are in rehearsals ahead of our July gigs,” posted guitarist David Meagher in the latest post online.

The band also shared another photo taken of the gig poster at Whelan's.
