THE FRANK & WALTERS


plus support

KEELEY

Sat 10th Dec 2022

Whelan’s Main Venue




It’s been an eventful few years for the band with the release of their latest album Songs for the Walking Wounded in 2016 and a European tour in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their 2nd album Grand Parade in 2017.

2018 had began with the band beginning work on the next album when, twenty five years after they gate crashed the UK Top 20 with their seminal hit ‘After All’, the track found a whole new audience following a classic television moment on the RTE/BBC production The Young Offenders.

As the captives of a lovably psychotic Billy Murphy broke into the indie anthem on a Cork bus, so began the track’s whirlwind ascent of music charts both here and in the UK, culminating in a mid-week position of Number 1 on the i
– Tunes download chart. A little more than 25 years to the day since the Franks played ‘After All’ on BBC’s flagship music show, Top of the Pops, the melodic hit once again reminded listeners that good tunes simply never go away.

“The Frank and Walters create music as timeless and classic as their heroes The Beatles and Brian Wilson. But it’s their decency and kindness, in a music biz of sharks, that will always endear them to me” – Ken Sweeney.

2022 has been a transformative year for Keeley Moss and her band KEELEY. The critically acclaimed Dublin native was granted “Hot For 2022” status in February by Hot Press magazine in Ireland, and since then she has signed a global publishing deal with Schubert Music, played rapturous shows in Dublin and Cork, launched her own hour-long show “Keeley’s Blissed-Out Bangers” on web-radio stations Radio Wigwam (UK) and Bombshell Radio (Canada) and released her debut mini-album ‘Drawn To The Flame’, which was featured by UK indie-powerhouse magazine Louder Than War.

This new EP features “Dead On Arrival” from the mini-album plus three brand new songs, and continues Keeley’s quest to memorialize Inga Maria Hauser, the teenage German backpacker who was murdered in Northern Ireland in 1988 (see short film here for more).

Our focus track is the pounding, fearsome neo-garage rocker “Forever’s Where You Are”, a natural successor to 2021’s global favourite “The Glitter And The Glue”. As Keeley herself observes…”Forever’s Where You Are” stretches even further into the heart of darkness, its vibrant venom a scathing riposte to the senseless savagery of an arch-enemy of art. Musical proof that the effervescent essence of her existence will not be extinguished.
