NME have recently stated that "Fangclub are a fully formed thrash pop monster; melodic, frenzied and phenomenal.
Imagine a beefed-up Tribes, or Cloverfield glam…….Fangclub are the Big Boys in the bomb bay."Steven King (guitar and vocals) & Kevin Keane (bass) were school friends and spent their teens playing in bands in Dublin. The pair met Dara Coleman (drums) at a house party show. While on one of their first DIY tours, with the band still sleeping in their van, they came to the attention of Universal Music's Irish team. Suitably impressed that Fangclub had already recorded two EPs, not to mention their debut album, Universal signed the band in March 2015. The debut album was released in 2017 to glowing reviews with the band themselves calling it “A love letter to our favourite bands". The self-titled album was chock-full of raw yet melodic tracks that took their cue from the loud/quiet aesthetic of Pixies. It charted at no.5 and received a nomination for Choice Prize Album Of The Year. On the live circuit, Fangclub have supported Pixies, Muse, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, The Cribs, Swmrs, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Bully and Milk Teeth while also cutting their own teeth on headline tours & festivals. More recently the band had a big week when they supported The Smashing Pumpkins across Europe, flew home in the middle of the tour to support Metallica at Slane Castle & then flew back to finish The Smashing Pumpkins tour. New Album "Vulture Culture" Out Now.
