Raw, direct, powerful, alt-rock, written with no frills and played with pure passion - the kind of energy that can only come from three old friends with sheer determination and “no plan B”.
Meet 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, toured with the likes of Twin Atlantic and won over a dedicated legion of fans.
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”, while Punktastic have deemed them “destined for mainstream success”. With their self-titled debut album in 2017, 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 Age 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.
