Finbar Hoban Presents Ireland’s loudest rock band And So I Watch You From Afar when they make a very rare appearance in Mayo at Bar Ritz (Mulroys Bar ) Castlebar on Thursday May 19. The band release their second album Gangs on the May 2. This promises to be one of the biggest shows in Castlebar this May.
The band have just signed to The Richter Collective label, home to such acts as Adebisi Shank, The Redneck Manifesto and Not Squares.
Known for their unrelenting tours that has seen them play over 300 gigs since the start of 2009, Belfast’s And So I Watch You From Afar (ASIWYFA to their fans ) don’t know how to take a break. From appearances at SXSW, Eurosonic, Electric Picnic, Novarock, Canadian Music Fest, Popkomm, Pukkelpop, Sonisphere, to tour dates in Europe, North America, Russia and a support slot for rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, the instrumental band have been on the road playing music non-stop since the release of their fan-stirring debut self-titled album.
In between, the band were nominated for a Choice Music Prize for Irish Album Of The Year and XFM’s New Music Album Of The Year, released The Letters EP in February 2010 and a stop-gap tour single ‘Straight Through The Sun’ in November 2010.
