“Scoops” are fresh off a busy few months of touring around Europe with both headline and support slots in great countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Germany and the UK. This is of course on top of finding the time to do their own 7 date tour of their home country of Ireland, further more to this they have been playing shows in many of Ireland’s third level universities (NUI Maynooth, UCD, UCC) and Institutes of Technologies (WIT, CIT, AIT ) this year as well supporting some of Ireland’s biggest acts including Walking on Cars, Hudson Taylor, Hermitage Green, The Academic and more. Yet there are no signs of the lads in “Scoops” wanting to slow down as they take off to Denmark in November for a number of dates and promotional activities following on from their successful summer of playing the main summer festivals in Denmark, this being the country outside of Ireland where the band have arguably had the most success and have played in front of crowds of up to 1000 a night.
Following the Danish tour, they begin their UK & Irish tour supporting Keywest throughout November and December of 2015 in which they will perform multiple sold out shows in both London and Dublin, as well as further dates up and down the UK and Ireland. Their debut EP was released to the charts in November going straight in at Number 2 in the iTunes Album charts right behind Adele, 2016 is set to be “Scoops” year both in Ireland and internationally and with the lads attitude to working hard and the guidance they have from people within the industry who is to say there is anything stopping them! So make sure to join the lads January 21st in Whelans as they start the year with a bang!
