Trucker Diablo release official ‘DRIVE’ video

Posted in Gig Review, Music, News with tags , , , , , on March 28, 2013 by Tickets There

The big truck just keeps on rolling! Trucker Diablo have just released the official video for ‘Drive’, the first single from their sophomore album, Songs of Iron, which is due for release in May. If you’re looking for a solid slice of fun loving, sing along rock then look no further than this little anthem. There’s also more depth than I was expecting from the album’s first single. Unlike ‘Drink Beer, Destroy’, ‘Drive’ offers a solace message for dealing with heartbreak; without losing any of the bands knack for catchiness.

Remember, they’re supporting Kopek @ The Workman’s Club on Saturday, April 6th. Don’t miss this rare chance to catch one of this Island’s best rock bands in Dublin.


House Of Dolls Announce :fund:it Campaign For Debut Album

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, News with tags , , , , on January 29, 2012 by Tickets There

Dublin band House Of Dolls have announced a :fund:it campaign to help get their début album, Welcome To The Department Of Nuclear Medicine, completed, pressed and distributed by it’s current launch date, February 17th. The band are looking to raise €2,000 and have already amassed €1,395.00 in the few days since the campaign was launched. Anyone’s that’s heard their début single ‘Gimmie Some Glory will know these guys are worth every penny you can invest. Their official speal can be found below along with a breakdown of the rewards available to those who assist.

Since our inception we have been making ears bleed and having a good time doing so. In that time we have evolved, exploring, absorbing and devouring everything weird, wonderful and brain-blistering going on around us. But now it is time for us to put out on record the culmination of 3 years of beautiful chaos. We are on the home
straight….but we need to get by with a little help from our friends on this one.

So, here’s the deal. Over the past 4 months we have been busy recording our 11-track début album “Welcome To The Department Of Nuclear Medicine” with Liam Mulvaney in Bow Lane Studios. This album is a labour of love. This album is a snarling beast. This album has bled us dry. This is the spawn of House Of Dolls. One last push and it’s unleashed….

With time restrictions we need help to cover the cost of the album mixing, mastering and duplication fees. For the kind spirited souls who want to play a part in making this happen we are offering the rewards outlined to your left. These can be posted out to participants or collected from us at our launch gig in the Workmans Club, Dublin, on the 17th of February

The band are also offering rewards for donations which can be found below.

€10 + You will receive a copy of the album on the night of the album launch which is to be held in The Workmans club on February 17th.
