Overhead, The Albatross has just been announced to headline Castlebar’s largest Halloween fancy dress ball. The ball, called Devil’s Night, takes place on October 29, with a host of upcoming Irish original live bands brought to Castlebar by Finbar Hoban Presents. The annual event has gone from strength to strength over the last eight years and this year will be no different.
Overhead, The Albatross are a six piece instrumental outfit from Dublin known for their intricate yet powerful melodies and energetic stage presence. Their sound combines a multitude of instruments which go beyond the normal boundaries of "post-rock" and delve into the realm of the cinematic. Layered strings, electronics, and spacious synths combined with soaring guitars and powerful drums to create their unique sound.
O,TA's music journeys from delicate intimacy to epic peaks, touching everything in between. Learning To Growl is the debut album, written between Ireland and the Czech Republic, produced and recorded in Clique Recordings, and mixed by Phillip Magee. It is out now.
This promises to be a brilliant Halloween fancy dress event with wonderful live music and fun for all at The Garbo’s venue. The event is also fancy dress optional. Tickets are now on sale and are available through Downtown Records and Hogs Heaven Bar in Castlebar.
