“A truly knockout debut” – Louise Molony, Kerrang! Radio
Having upped sticks from the Emerald Isle to hustle their brand of low-slung Rock’n’Roll under the lights of London, Sal Vitro now unveil their first single ‘Wear it Out’, released May 25th on IRL.
‘Wear it Out’ is a story of apathy, lust, and the nature of attraction – a perfect sample of the Irish foursome’s experimental nature. Steeped in funky hooks, it nods to the Black Keys via the no-nonsense rock sensibilities of Rival Sons.
Touring extensively has honed the band into seasoned performers. Among others, they’ve joined the legendary Thin Lizzy on their Farewell Tour to a sold out Olympia Theatre, opened for Jeff Beck and Richie Sambora, and rocked out to audiences 10,000-strong for Status Quo.
Having met on a modelling shoot in Dublin in 2011, Josh Dunford, Owie Lumsden, John Cuddy and Rourke Bradley joined their powers to tear through gospel choirs and Deep South whisky bars – keeping it together with plenty of homeland charm.
The band will be playing a string of live dates around the release (details tba) and are available for interview.
Buckle up and enjoy the spectacle – Sal Vitro have all the tricks to seduce you into their circus until you’re swinging from the Big Top.
