“STAND UP” EP , FULL STREAM: http://emptylungs.bandcamp.com/album/stand-up-ep
The ”Stand Up” EP is 6 tracks of passionate, hook driven, anthemic rock and roll. With a sound thats hard to pigeon hole it combines explosive punk rock and post-hardcore with 90’s indie rock and at times has echoes of folk and Americana. After its release the band plan to hit the road hard around Ireland, UK and Europe.

”…The boys are in world beating form, they belt out the likes of ”Identity Lost” and ”Nothing Left To Lose” with a belief and passion that marks them out as one of the best unsigned acts on the island right now.” – Edwin McFee, Hot Press Magazine.
‘’…I can now heartily recommend the band as a potent power trio with a rapidly expanding set of catchy yet crunchy tuneage. Empty Lungs Rock…’’ – David Roy, The Irish News.
