It was announced today that Whenyoung are going on tour in Ireland and we are so excited!

The band will stop off in venues in Dublin, Cork, Limerick & Galway.

The national tour will include special guest Sinead O'Brien, an Irish poet and performer based in London. Originally from Limerick 'a kind of grey industrial place with an a certain poetry to it', Sinead's work captures the everyday and the in-between in a way that transcends genre. 

A multifaceted artist, Sinead’s writing has also been published by the esteemed London Magazine whose alumni include T.S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath and William Burroughs.

Her unique fusion of spoken lyrics and art rock has piqued the attention of luminaries of both genres, seeing her perform with John Cooper Clarke and Brian Jonestown Massacre at sold out theatres across the UK.

Tour Dates 

 7TH NOVEMBER - AT THE BUTTON FACTORY, DUBLIN

8TH NOVEMBER – CYRUS AVENUE, CORK

9TH NOVEMBER – DOLANS LIMERICK

10TH NOVEMBER – ROISIN DUBH, GALWAY

‘Reasons To Dream’ is a presentation of our collective experiences of life since we have moved to London” the band explain. “We've trundled through many jobs, flats, neighbourhoods and rehearsal rooms learning, practising, maturing and cultivating whatever it is we do along the way. We've gone from knowing nobody to making close friends, from finding it lonely to finding it welcoming.” 

 

 

Alongside previously release singles ‘Pretty Pure’ and the anthemic ‘Never Let Go’ it features brand-new tracks such as the touching ‘Labour of Love’ and the evocative ‘Blow Up the World’, based on a line by the French anti-war philosopher Simone de Beauvoir.

The album marks the next milestone in a journey that started for the band when they first met as teenagers in Limerick, Ireland. After playing in separate bands around the local scene for several years, they eventually all found themselves in London and the band that was to become whenyoung was formed, inspired by a heathy mix of the music they all loved their favourite classic cinema and literature. 

 

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10AM.
