Two Limerick boys, ear shattering guitars, coronary inducing drumming, a disturbing use of gas masks and a self deprecating sense of humour, giveamanakick knee you in the stomach and then pummel you while youâ€™re down.
Deviant duo giveamanakick have confirmed Friday April 18 for the release of their hugely anticipated third album. The invitingly titled Welcome To The Cusp, is the follow up to their much beloved subversive offerings Is It OK To Be Loud, Jesus? and We Are The Way Forward.
From an explosive start to a finish that always comes too soon, giveamanakick wreak havoc on stage, strutting from melody to mosh in a schizophrenic assault on the ears and eyes. It really, truly shouldnâ€™t workâ€¦but is does. giveamanakick, whether on the stage or the car stereo, are a spine bending experience affecting body, soul and sanity.
Over the past three and a bit years, giveamanakick have released two wholly compelling albums, inviting much-deserved critical acknowledgement. They have shared the boards with a multitude of rock luminaries including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Rapture, Dinosaur Jr, Deftones, Presidents of the United States of America, Electric 6 and The Icarus Line. They have proffered their strange and wonderous live shows at many festivals across Ireland and Europe including Electric Picnic and Reeperbahn in Germany.
Following an extended UK tour with The Undertones, the band returned home to write and record the new album, which is now ready to be unleashed. The Welcome To The Cusp assault kicks off with the lead single Borrowed Time and the announcement of a headline Irish tour which includes Whelanâ€™s on April 19th.
Now giveamanakick are back in Whelanâ€™s this April 19th. Donâ€™t miss it! Tickets are â‚¬12.50 on sale now through Ticketmaster and other usual outlets nationwide.
