The DELO-BUS has its headlights trained on the South West of Ireland, for the first week of the < Bullet in a Gun Tour > and while not quite dogs in heat, we’re very excited about it. New songs, old songs, new arrangements and instruments… It’s going to be good.
Beginning in Dolans, Limerick on Friday night and The Pavilion in Cork on Saturday, we’ll be hitting up a town near you over the next four weeks. And with so many people returning home from abroad for Christmas, it’s looking like the Vicar Street show on Dec 21st, is going to be the mother of all Christmas parties. Let no one arrive without sporting something festive! All dates and tickets are > HERE <.
We warmed up for the tour on Tuesday night with a secret acoustic show for Hotpress and it turned out to be good fun, a very intimate 50/60 people in the centre of Dublin – Jameson, Cod & Chips and dimmed lights. You can get pictures > HERE <.
The MC of that show, and advocate of popular music, Stuart Clarke, joined us on our recent Bullring gig in Murcia and our interview with him is published in the Christmas edition of the mag. Our name’s even on the cover! Plus a handsome picture of one of the gangster dudes.
Aside from the big news for the tour, we’ve been announced for the prestigious SXSW Festival in Texas, this is something that we’ve always loved since we did it first five years ago, and is always an incredible few days of live music.
Finally, we’re delighted to say that our “Little Sparks Podcast” is available to download *free* from Sound Cloud. We’ve been trying to do interesting and creative things around each release from this album, so this is another idea we thought you’d like!
Recorded shortly after Little Sparks completion, it’ll take you behind the scenes of its making and is our little Christmas present to you.
So, see you up the front on the tour, we’re currently practicing and trying to polish the setlist and songs; in the meantime go easy on the advent calendars.
Oh, and if you’d like to get an album, ep or t-shirt as a present for someone for Christmas: http://delorentos.bandcamp.com !
