KODALINE, ONE of Ireland’s biggest and most internationally successful bands, are coming west this summer to play the Galway International Arts Festival's Big Top in the Fisheries Field.
The band - Steve Garrigan (vocals ), Mark Prendergast (guitar ), Jason Boland (bass ), and Vinny May (drums ) - play the Big Top on Thursday July 19. The band's most recent single, 'Brother', produced by Steve Harris and Two Inch Punch, with long-time collaborator Johnny McDaid (Snow Patrol ) as executive producer, and mixed by Spike Stent, is the first taste of their forthcoming new album.
The new album sees them collaborating with a variety of different writers and producers, including Wayne Hector and Jonny Coffer (Beyoncé, Emeli Sande, Naughty Boy and Two Inch Punch, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and Sam Smith ). It is the follow-up to 2015's Coming Up For Air, which went gold in the UK. The band's debut album, In A Perfect World, has sold more than a million copies worldwide and enjoyed streaming figures well into the hundreds of millions. On Vevo, the band's videos have had more than 200 million views.
