IF EVERY ALBUM AN ARTIST MAKES OFFERS A SNAPSHOT OF WHERE THEY STAND AT THAT POINT, THEN THE PICTURE PRESENTED BY IRISH ROCK ’N’ ROLL IS ONE OF A BAND PREPARING TO GO STRATOSPHERIC. IT’S AN ALBUM THAT MANAGES TO PERFECTLY CAPTURE THE CHAOS, HUMOUR AND EXCITEMENT OF THE BAND’S RECENT LIVE SHOWS WHILST ALSO SHOWCASING THE INCREDIBLE EMOTIONAL OF THE TRADITIONAL BALLADS THAT THEY PLAY (BOTH IN SONGS PASSED DOWN FROM PREVIOUS GENERATIONS AND – FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THIS RECORD – THEIR OWN SONGS THAT PROMISE TO BE PASSED DOWN TO FUTURE GENERATIONS). ONE OF THOSE TRADITIONAL BALLADS – WEXFORD – IS THE SECOND SINGLE FROM THE ALBUM FOLLOWING THE HOLY GROUND AND IT’S ONLINE EVERYWHERE NOW.
Absolutely one of the most distinct, arresting and rapturous around, we’re totally chuffed to be involved with this one!
