Introducing a four piece rock band from Dublin. 2016 was a great year for the band as they introduced themselves to the Irish Music scene playing packed out shows in Whelans, supporting HamSandwich on their Satellites Tour and showcasing the band at Electric Picnic. They’ve got a heavy blues rock sound influenced by an eclectic array of artists, too many to mention. The lineup includes Mike Sleeman on Guitar & Lead Vocals. Rhys Waters on Lead Guitar and Keyboard. Dan Stuart on Drums & Backing Vocals and Shane Fitzgerald on Bass. They’ve spent the last few months of the year writing new tunes with plans to get into the studio to record and then gig throughout 2017. There will be photo’s, video’s and music and maybe some other stuff also. Stay tuned…

You Break, You Buy are an instrumental rock quartet based in London, UK. Like most people these days, they met through the Internet in the Autumn of 2012. After a few dates and some heavy petting they knew that a strong musical bond would be formed and set about writing a bunch of songs that would become their first EP, Happy Happenstance, released at the end of 2014. The EP was unanimously well received, garnering kind reviews from the likes of Fecking Bahamas and featuring on The Math-Rock News’ Winter ’14/15 compilation. Gigging, further writing of material and a few live video sessions have kept the band busy. They are due to release their much anticipated second EP on the 18th of January 2017.
