After a 6 year hiatus, The Blizzards are back with a bang. The Mullingar five piece are kicking things off with the release of their new single “Drop Down The Anchor” on 30 June followed by a headline date at Whelan’s the next day on Friday 1 July.

These power pop chart toppers are obviously no strangers to the Irish music scene. Before the Voice of Ireland, and Niall Breslin’s solo and producing career, The Blizzards drew crowds of sincere music fans with their combination of catchy pop toe tappers and contagious beats to stages from Slane and Oxegen to their own headline show at The Olympia. Since the band’s conception in 2004, their release history is nothing to be sniffed at.
Their debut album, “A Public Display of Affection”, released in October 2006, achieved double platinum status in Ireland. Their 2008 follow up “Domino Effect”, entered the Irish Album Chart at number two and birthed four singles including the top three hit “Trust Me, I’m A Doctor” plus “The Reason”, “Postcards” and “Buy It Sell It”.
Live performances were always where the band excelled and over the years, The Blizzards have shared stages with such musical heavy weights as Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, The Prodigy and AC/DC. The future is bright for these boys and only getting brighter. There are big things planned for the lads in the next couple of months so be sure to watch this space.
The Blizzards are: Niall Breslin, Anthony Doran, Declan Murphy, Justin Ryan, Aidan Lynch
