Dublin 60’s style rock and roll band GANGS have been making strides since their formation in 2012 becoming one of Ireland’s hottest new bands. Their journey has been brisk, with various sold-out headline shows across the country, culminating with their appearance on the Other Voices Music Trail in Dingle last December. Now, one month into 2014 they have been nominated by Hot Press Magazine as the Most Promising Irish Act for 2014, an accolade the band are extremely proud of. Jonathan Halpin stated “its great that the industry here are starting to really get behind us, we’re excited for people to hear our new stuff too, 2014 is going to be a huge year for us”.
Next up the Dublin-based teenagers make their way North for a second appearance on RTE’s prestigious event on Feb 7th. “We’re just happy to see all the work and commitment pay off more than anything” says Jordan Curtis [lead vocalist]. “We’re on such a high at the moment, it’s great” Jordan continued “this year the plan is to keep recording and playing as many festivals as possible, we cant wait to hit Derry, we’ve been told by the Other Voices team that the music scene is buzzing up there. We have a big set planned.”
After Derry comes their biggest step yet, as GANGS head to London to perform two dates on March 23rd and 24th, more details to come on those gigs next month. GANGS’ new single, ‘2.15′, will be launching on Feb 20th 2014.
