The band have just announced an album launch gig in The Grand Social on 18th June, ably assisted by Windings and Handsome Eric.
Glimmermen take rock and roll back to its primitive core. having quickly earned a reputation for their intense live shows, the band — Gav Cowley (guitar, vocals), J. Bassetti (bass), Phil Murray (drums), and Dave Prendergast (trumpet) — released their debut EP Satellite People in 2012 with comparisons to Television, Pop Group and Mission of Burma. They followed up with their J.Robbins – recorded debut I’m Dead in 2013. Since then, they have played shows up and down the country including festivals such as Electric Picnic.
Breakin’ Out touches on many themes, primarily the importance of being in the moment, the right now. Life can be tricky. Life can dictate a narrative for you if you let it. Don’t let it! Songs are delivered with a wry smile and at times lonesome clarity.
Recorded in ‘The Meadow’ in Wicklow by The Deaf Brothers at the beginning of 2016, this record is sure to enhance your summer. These nine new songs see Glimmermen expand on their core guitar, bass, and drums line-up, with brass arrangements that embellish the stripped-back sound of their critically acclaimed debut I’m Dead (2013). The result is a more accessible album, while still retaining the distinctive cutting edge of their live shows.
Breakin’ Out will be released by Transduction Records and will be available on vinyl or via your digital download or streaming service of choice.
