The Flag Listeners return to the Upstairs venue in Dolans on Friday June 21st. We will be showcasing songs from our current album and new songs from our forthcoming second album. It's going to be a good one. There may even be a very special guest.
Admission is €8 and doors are at 21:00.
In 2017 the band released their long-awaited debut album, and other short stories, to a packed house in Dolan’s Warehouse, Limerick. Hot Press magazine’s Stuart Clark gave the album a glowing review, calling it a “songwriting masterclass from Limerick’s finest”. It has since received extensive airplay from Tom Dunne, Paul McLoone and many others.
The band is currently demoing tracks for the follow-up record. The Upstairs gig will feature some of these new songs plus familiar songs from the album and other favourites from the live set.
Eamonn Hehir released two solo albums: “Blood Mill Road” (2000) and “The Flag Listeners” (2012). Hot Press described the latter album as “…a heady mix of guitar pop, dreamy soundscapes and poetic lyrics…” The Flag Listeners were formed to play music from these solo albums, but rapidly outgrew that brief, developing a distinct band sound that reflects the members’ individual and shared influences, with fans citing Bowie, The Psychedelic Furs, Elbow, Prefab Sprout and Pink Floyd among others, and John Steele contributing to the songwriting.
The band has quickly developed a reputation for delivering a dynamic, high-energy live set with sounds ranging from melodic pop-rock, ambient atmospherics to full-on rock’n’roll.
