Fangclub - a Dublin-based trio who formed in the neighbouring, remote coastal town of Rush when they were teenagers. Between dropping out of college for those early jam sessions and now, they’ve signed with major Universal imprint Vertigo Records, released two acclaimed EPs (‘Bullethead’ and ‘Coma Happy’), toured with the likes of Twin Atlantic and won over a dedicated legion of fans.

Celebrating the release of their debut self-titled album, they have announced a show at Cyprus Avenue

Formed of singer and guitarist Steven King, drummer Dara Coleman and bassist

Kevin Keane, Fangclub have been lauded by Kerrang! for their “explosively catchy tunes”, whilePunktastic have deemed them “destined for mainstream success”. With their self-titled debut album due in August and a packed summer of touring, this is one club that’s only going to grow and grow in strength and number.

Openers ‘Bullet Head’ and ‘Role Models’ kickstart the thread of noise driven by melody, with the break-neck desert-rock ferocity of Queens Of The Stone met by the inescapable hooks of Weezer. ‘Lightning’ and ‘Dreamcatcher’ take the paranoid math-rock that Biffy Clyro chase and pack it with a Seattle-sized chorus - culminating in tracks like the feral rush of ‘Common Ground’ and the pure grunge nihilism of ‘Best Fake Friends’ that destine this band for arenas.
