    Axis Of - Finding St Kilda

    Axis Of release their debut LP Finding St Kilda this week and have lined up a 5 date Irish tour to make sure you know about it.

    Having spent the last couple of years touring the UK and Ireland, as well as mainland Europe, clocking up shows alongside the likes of The Bronx, The Joy Formidable, Twin Atlantic and Therapy? along the way, the band are now set to unleash their debut album, ‘Finding St Kilda’, produced by Rocky O’Reilly (And So I Watch You From Afar, Fighting With Wire) at Start Together Studios in their native Ireland earlier this year.

    Speaking of the record and the band’s approach in general, Friers says, “We started playing music together as kids and we decided then we’d live by two concrete rules - We’d only play music we wanted to hear and write words we thought were important. For us, the album is the perfect representation of what we are. Written by Mastodon fans hooked on Fang Island!”

    Crushingly heavy and littered with pop sensibility throughout, ‘Finding St Kilda’, is an undeniably original and ‘heart on your sleeve’ affair. It’s no surprise that Kerrang! has already declared that “cult status looks assured.”

    Those tour dates:

    March 20th - Cork - Nancy Spain
    March 21st - Limerick - Dolans
    March 22nd - Dublin - Workmans Club
    March 23rd - Galway - Roisin Dubh (Upstairs)
    March 30th - Belfast - The Empire
