Date: 26th April
Price: Tickets on the Stage Door: €5.00
Following the release of their debut single 'The Apple Truck' and an ensuing tour around Ireland, Gorilla Troubadour have made a name for themselves as gritty rockers, combining powerful riffs and ear catching hooks. Over the summer they played at festivals such as Townlands Carnival and Gael Linn. Other highlights include a headline in The Workman's Club as part of Gigonometry and packing out Geoff's Bar in their hometown of Waterford. The band recently headlined The Workmans Club on the 17th of January to a full venue. The launch gig for ‘Tom Cruise Does All His Own Stunts’ is was held in Whelan's on the 19th of February. Also planned are launch dates in venues all across the country as the band look to build on their success of 2018.
“Channelling early, mid, and late noughties indie-rock with a crushing hard edge, Dublin four-piece Gorilla Troubadour barge their way through a rambunctious just shy of three minutes haymaker in the form of 'Tom Cruise Does All His Own Stunts'. Bass and percussion act as a dual machine-gun of rapid-fire rock outbursts that explode in your face and leave you dizzied and delighted.”- (REMY, Irish Playlist)
“The new track kicks off with a rasping bass-line and doesn't let go. There's a little bit of Arctic Monkeys in the sound - not a bad thing at all - and it marks them out as a young band to keep an eye on in the coming years.”- (Joe.ie)
Cian CuXack and the Definition
Cian CuXack and the Definition are an Indie Pop/Rock outfit from Waterford made up of Ciarán Brady, Claire Beardsley, Calum McGavock, Shane Walsh and Cian CuXack.
The band have been making their rounds on the independent music scene over the past few months and are set to release their upcoming single in the coming months.
Boasting an all-original set, their music expertly moulds an explosive Indie Rock sound with Pop melodies and profound themes that will leave you singing and questioning the songs on the way home.
Led by Songwriter and Producer Cian CuXack, the initial aim when first creating the tracks was 'to make something that people could dance to at concerts but were also able to go home and cry in their bedrooms to.'
'The message of the music is about constantly striving to Be The Best You and the songs deal with the journey of this personal process'
