Castlederg folk band The Logues building their Empire

theloguesFrom their humble beginnings in a sleepy County Tyrone village, The Logues have become one of Ireland’s most sought-after live bands and have been called “The most progressive folk band in Ireland” by AMA Music Agency.

The Castlederg band have played everywhere, from The Hills of Donegal to Dubai, and for those of you who have been to a gig will recognise their fantastic new foot-stomping single, ‘I Don’t Love You At All’ with a second track ‘Home’.

Earlier in the year, the band were signed to Ireland’s most respected live music booking agency, AMA Music Agency – and although they have been playing together for nearly 10 years, this is only the beginning for The Logues. With string of new dates just announced, this band is definitely one to watch out for. The new single captures exactly what the Logues are, an exciting mix of acoustic rock and ‘whiskey-soaked folk’.

The Co Tyrone based band is made up of five very talented musicians and friends, Justin Logue, Kiel Cathers, Christopher Speer, Darrell Nelson and Christopher Darragh. Building on the success of their self-released debut album Tough at the Bottom, the band began recording again in 2014, and are determined to make the name for themselves they deserve, with their infectious foot-stomping, yet soul-stirring music. The Co Tyrone band has received high critical acclaim and extensive radio airplay throughout Ireland and the UK with previous recordings, and ‘I Don’t Love You At All’ is expected to be no different.

Powered by passion and driven by dedication, The Logues have found their ‘Home’, and it’s on stage. ‘I Don’t Love You At All’ is now available for download from iTunes and Amazon. For upcoming gig news, follow the band on Facebook and Twitter.

The Logues will be performing live at The Empire as part of their Irish Tour on Thursday 19th November, and tickets are available via Ticketmaster.
