Hey, WELCOME TO JUNE!
Couple of cool things to tell you about:
We’re looking forward to Festival Gradual, Murchante and Bandon Music Fest this weekend (a LOT of driving between those two places). They’re the start of the summer for us! Get in if you’re close! – Tickets
We’re excited to announce three more fantastic Irish shows: we’ll also be back in Ireland for the Kilkenny Outdoor Festival July 23rd, Tralee’s 800 years Celebrations on June 17th and on the 14th August we’re at the Carrickmacross Arts Festival which will be awesome as we can practice our hurling (seriously)… we also go to Marbella 1/2nd July (BOOM) where we can practice our tanning plus we’re playing in SONARAMA (BOOM!) 12th August in Aranda de Duero (home of the famous Delorentos wine); It’s a busy busy summer. Get tickets for the Irish shows here: –Tickets–
On top of all that we’ve been working on tunes back and forth between each other, which is cool, and hopefully we’ll be getting into the groove of recording soon. The new songs are very young right now and must be encouraged and nurtured before they can have visitors..
Last month we said we’d let you know what two countries will be releasing Night Becomes Light next, here’s a hint: Das is splendid. We’ll be announcing lots in our next blog… 😉
IN THE MEANTIME, we’ll be hosting a special Facebook Live event on Friday evening live from Spain… so keep an eye on facebook.com/delorentos for details. We’ve never done one of these before, so drop in to give us a hand.
Also, We’re working on a bunch of different projects which we are excited to share with you, Níal is launching the new series of his podcast ‘The Weekly General Meeting” (click here to check it out) -past guests have included Villagers, James Vincent McMorrow, Tim Wheeler from Ash and Domhnall Gleeson! Kieran also made an appearance on a Podcast this week – on this week’s No Encore music podcast (click here to listen!).
Finally, Just a quick note to say how sad we were to hear of the postponement of the Raveloid festival – A great idea and something we know we’ll be involved with again. It’s hard to get new festivals off the ground, but Raveloid always felt like it was interesting and different – They’ve now organised a smaller event in Dublin to keep the spirit of it intact – more details here.
Anyway thanks for reading, See you soon at a show – until then Adios and Slán abhaile!
