Fangclub Announce Self-Titled Debut Album Set For Release on August 4th 2017!
Fangclub announce their brilliant new single “Bad Words” taken from the forthcoming self-titled debut album set for an August 4th release on Vertigo.
Raw, direct, powerful, alt-rock, written with no frills and played with pure passion - the kind of energy that can only come from three old friends with sheer determination and “no plan B”.
Meet Fangclub- a Dublin-based triowho formed in the neighbouring, remote coastal town of Rush when they were teenagers. Between dropping out of college for those early jam sessions and now, they’ve signed with major Universal imprint Vertigo Records, released two acclaimed EPs (‘Bullethead’ and ‘Coma Happy’), toured with the likes of Twin Atlantic and won over a dedicated legion of fans.
Formed of singer and guitarist Steven King, drummer Dara Coleman and bassist Kevin Keane, Fangclub have been lauded by Kerrang!for their “explosively catchy tunes”, while Punktastic have deemed them “destined for mainstream success”. With their self-titled debut album due in August and a packed summer of touring, this is one club that’s only going to grow and grow in strength and number.
“I had watched this documentary about tribes, and there was this one that would tattoo themselves with fang symbols,” says King says of the origin of their name. “That idea just really lent itself to what we were trying to do. I was in a cafe and drew it out with the fang logo on a napkin, now it’s plastered all over Dublin. There are guys who have it tattooed on them. It feels like we have our own very tribe now. Back in school, we were the only punk-rockers in town - so we kind of gravitated towards each other,” says Steven. Originally united by extreme hairstyles and their love of The Offspring and NOFX, now their self-titled debut album sees them step out of their own ‘little bubble’ and onto the world stage. No gimmicks, just rock.
