Returning from a self-imposed hiatus, Relish, finally back with their most recent single ‘Something To Believe In’ gear up for the release of their new single and forthcoming album of the same name ‘Connected’ with a tour of the UK and Ireland.
Their exclusive official album launch of “Connected” will be in the close-up and personal setting of Whelan’s (upstairs). This is an exciting opportunity to see Relish in such an intimate setting with only limited places available.
Formed in County Down, Northern Ireland by brothers Ken (vocals/guitar) and Carl Papenfus (drums) and Darren Campbell (bass), Relish have released two highly regarded albums to date working with such acclaimed producers as John Leckie (Radiohead/The Stone Roses) and Al Clay (Stereophonics). From 4 chart-topping Irish singles, to topping the Japanese most played list and even having the unlikely request from Westlife to cover their single ‘Rainbow Zephyr’ reworked as ‘Hey Whatever’ which was a UK Top 5 and international hit.
From Ireland and Japan to the coasts of Spain, past Relish releases have proven gold and platinum selling albums. Now with third album ‘Connected’ in the can, the band have finally decided the time is right to do what they do best – songs with guitars to the max driven rock and roll, crafted with emotional soul filled vocals. With ‘Connected’ they have produced an album full of anthems, riffs, hooks and spirit and all the things you would expect from Relish.
“It feels magical to be back with a new album, possibly the best album we have ever written,” says Relish lead singer Ken Papenfus. “The band has a renewed spirit and enthusiasm and we are looking forward to meeting our old friends again and welcoming those new to our sound. It really couldn’t be better.”
Championed by the likes of Paul Weller, U2’s Larry Mullen, Queen guitarist Brian May and Radio 1 and 2, Relish have once again hit the ground running with their most recent single ‘Something To Believe In.’ which would have needed a barring order to keep it off the radio. It’s like they’ve never been away.
