News Dump

Gentle reader,
Some news for you... Some of it old, some of it new.

Needless to say, more than half of all the Irish talent still alive is going to show up at some point at the Oxegen Festival this Sunday, 11th July.

Alphastates have a new single "Last Day Of Summer" due out on August 27.

Ash’s new single, "Starcrossed" comes out on the 16th. You can check out the video here.

Perry Blake releases his "Songs For Someone" album in July.

The Devlins will release their 4th album, Waves, on August 6. The band will have a track featured on the new Natalie Portman film, “Closer”, directed by Mike Nicholls and due for release in the U.S. in December. Of course anything could happen between now and the release date.

The Frames announced a major headline gig to finish the summer. They will play Marlay Park, Dublin on Saturday 21 August with special guests including Supergrass, Bell X1, Idlewild and Halite.
The Hansard family release their new single the day before.

I know that they aren't Irish, but I like them! Orbital had a recent BBC Radio One special, details available here. They released their 7th studio album The Blue Album in the middle of June. It's expected to be their last.

Damien Rice’s new single with Christy Moore, "Lonely Soldier", went straight into the Irish singles chart at No 4 this week. "Lonely Soldier" is a limited release sold at a recommended €3 with profits being donated to the Irish Anti-War Movement.

Shambosious are back in action having collected a new drummer in the shape of Ian Walsh of Bass Odyssey-fame.

Snow Patrol have a new single out on tomorrow called "Spitting Games".

Stanley Super 800's self-titled début album is out now on their own Bingo label.

Take care,
