WE COME IN PIECES formed back in 2010, within a hectic 2-year period, they released 2 full length albums while touring the UK and Europe 4 times. After a run of bad luck and life getting in the way, the band hit the skids. Returning 6 years after their last release (among subsequent other failures), WCIP released their epic third full length offering ‘Stop the Rot’. Available on heavyweight vinyl, CD and digital, it features 11 tracks of fast, heavy, hairy, aggressively balding rock and roll music.

“…brimfull of hardcore energy and intelligent arrangements…a rampaging helping of aggro-metal, with exhuberent vocals battling it out with a relentless band noise…terrific melodies and an arrangement that shifts gears and keeps your ears engaged…” HOT PRESS
”There isn’t a duff track here, it’s a short sharp shock with a bit of math rock here, punk rock there and a little vintage metal thrown into the mix” – THE LIMERICK POST

Coming off the back of a string of dates to launch their excellent new album, DOTT make a welcome return to Limerick after a prolonged absence. The eagerly awaited ‘Heart Swell’ was released on Graveface Records back in June. The first single from the album, ‘Like a Girl’ featured Sadie Dupuis from Speedy Ortiz on guitar. Dott have spent the summer busy with performances across Ireland and the UK. Some highlights have been the Galway International Arts Festival, and Other Voices Ballina.
“Glowing and infectious” David Dye, NPR.
“Extremely catchy stuff, harmony-laden early-’60s-meets-early-’90s indie rock”, Bill Pearis, Brooklyn Vegan.
“Heart Swell is filled with the band’s strongest material yet; bolstered by a bolder brand of garage-pop”, Edwin McFee, Hotpress Magazine.
“An album packed with infectious hooks and driving, danceable riffs… It’s an absurdly melodic summer beach party in celebration of love, feminine strength and Ireland’s latest hopeful step towards modernity”, James Coz, The Thin Air Magazine.
Post Punk Podge & The Technohippies have been having an incredible year, with appearances at Body & Soul, Knockanstockan and two performances at this year’s Electric Picnic. The epitome of the DIY ethic, they have been winning over fans with their energetic performances – an attack on the senses, part sermon, part punk and hip-hop, wholly raucous and infectious.

With there consistent output, and commitment to playing live across the country,With they are consistent output, and commitment to playing live across the country, its cleat they are in the music game for the long haul and not just a flash in the pan.

“…you could call them Munster’s Sleaford Mods – seriously, check them out live – as Podge spits post-Tiger quotidian frustration of both systematic and internal….with some elements of the Fall’s brief dalliances with mainstream success…” thethinair.net
