Empty Lungs are a 4 piece based in Belfast, N. Ireland. They played their first show in May 2011 they play passionate, anthemic and catchy music that draws influence from punk, folk, country and post-hardcore.

The bands relentlessly energetic live shows have gained them a reputation as a must see act and within a few months of playing shows around Ireland they had already received airplay on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio Ulster.
Their debut single ”Identity Lost” was mixed by Rocky O’ Reilly (Opppenheimer, And so I watch you from afar) and was released on 20th September 2011.

2012 has seen Empty Lungs enter the studio to record a 6 track EP that they’re currently planning a release for, gain a 4th member in the shape of 2nd guitarist Sam Chadwick and play a host of shows including a full UK tour, supports with the likes of The Subways, General Fiasco, Cheap Girls, Lemuria, Franz Nicolay(The Hold Steady), Japandroids, Dead To Me and a appearance at one of the biggest independant festivals in Ireland Glasgowbury.

‘’ This Belfast trio’s debut triple-tracker will be catnip for anyone who worships at the altar of Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker and their Eighties and Nineties US punk brethren…It’s all remarkably accomplished for a first release, but then Kev Jones and Ryan Holmes have paid their dues in various bands over the last five to 10 years – and it shows…this is an impressive opening salvo.’’- Chris Jones, AU Magazine.
