The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock launch their debut album on Transduction Records at The Boom Boom Room on Friday, April 18th.
Formed by Allen Blighe in 2006 following the demise of the Holy Ghost Fathers, the self-titled album see songs in the Irish folk tradition expanded into the realms of psych, prog and post rock, channelling amongst other things, the diverse yet kindred spirits of Lift to Experience, 16 Horsepower, Thin Lizzy and The Chieftains.
Aided by The Spook band and the able production of multi- instrumentalist Enda Bates, the debut album shifts gears effortlessly, careening from folk ballads to drone atmospherics to full-on psychedelic rock. The band is completed by ex-Steerage members Donnchadh Hoey (guitar) and Brian O’Higgins (drums).
The Spook will also play the Roisin Dubh in Galway on Thursday, April 17th.
