WOUNDS

Wounds are brothers Aidan and James Coogan, Aaron McGrath and Craig McCann. Influenced by The Stooges, Every Time I Die, Amen and Nine Inch Nails, they released their debut EP ‘Dead Dead Fucking Dead’ with rave reviews from Kerrang “Menacing, volatile, and thrilling angular punk sounds – Breathtaking Stuff ” (KKKK) and ROCK SOUND “Rock Sound is entirely in love with the exhilarating noise created by this Dublin punk quintet  – more please “ (8/10). With a blistering live show, the band then toured with Gallows, Cancer Bats and Crime in Stereo in support of the release.

Work began on their debut album shortly after, but was cut short when James unfortunately had an accident and was on life support. After what seemed like a miracle of a recovery and a painful time for all involved, James pulled through. Wounds picked up where they left off & finished recording their debut album this year.

Debut album “DIE YOUNG” will be released in January 2013 through In At The Deep End Records.

This gig will also mark the release of WOUNDS latest video for the track NO FUTURE, which will be out on NOVEMBER 1ST

KID KARATE

Kid Karate are a two-piece band from Dublin, Ireland comprising of vocalist/guitarist Kevin Breen and drummer Steven Gannon. The pair’s music is gritty, raw and brutal; dwelling somewhere between the fuzzy blues of The Black Keys, the danceability of The Rapture and the aggression of Queens of the Stone Age.

The band’s musical aesthetic is based around Breen’s thunderous guitar-work and atypical howl, and Gannon’s primal drumming style. These elements combined enable the pair to create music that is catchy and intoxicating. Kid Karate make more noise than two people should.

The duo has performed highly acclaimed sets at Hard Working Class Heroes, CastlePalooza, Forbidden Fruit Festival and Electric Picnic. Their gigs have been described as manic and explosive with club promoters warning guests, “Expect to get the heads blown off you!” – (POD).

Kid Karate’s debut LP, Night Terrors, will be released in early 2013.
