Dublin trio The Minutes release second single Fleetwood, taken off their forthcoming album â€˜Marcataâ€™ set for release on October4th 2010.If Fleetwood Mac and BRMC shared their DNA for a day in the studio you would be forgiven for thinking The Minutes were their genetically modified offspring, such is the depth, texture and power of this richly talented band.
As uncompromising as they are timeless in song craft, The Minutes will make you catch your breath and set your pulse racing.
The band have toured extensively in Ireland and the UK with the likes of Albert Hammond Jnr (The Strokes), The Pigeon Detectives, The Von Bondies and Supergrass forging their reputation along the way as a must see act for the future.
Soon after a yearlong residency at Dublinâ€™s live music staple, Whelans in 2009 the boys headed off to Marcata Recordings in upstate New York to record their debut album with producer Kevin McMahon.
This was followed by a critically acclaimed performance at SXSW in Texas in March 2010.
Previous releases to date have included ‘Black Keys’ ‘Harmonic’, ‘Ukraine’ and most recently â€˜Secret Historyâ€™, the debut single to be taken off Marcata.
Fleetwood not only pays homage to one of the bandâ€™s greatest influences, but heralds what promises to be a really exciting year for the band and their future fans.

Mark Austin – vocals/guitar

Shane Kinsella – drums/vocals
