Autumn Owls have their gig-feet firmly back on after a brief hibernation period while Gary McFarlane (guitar, vocals) and Will Purtill (drums, percussion) trained up two new recruits.
Paul Bermingham on guitar and keys with Niall Jackson taking over bass duties.
Having independently recorded and released not one, but two widely acclaimed E.P's in 2008 (Insomnia Lodge/ On The Trail of The Disappearing) , 2009 has been somewhat of a quiet year so far. However with their debut album a work in progress and recording expected to start in September catch their dark, experimental but melodic tones at one of their many shows over the next month to catch up.
Drunken Boat have been keeping busy for the last few months headlining in Anseo with Red Eskimo and Peter Delaney, supporting At Last An Atlas and then The Hollows for their EP launch in Dublin and Galway. They've played with heroes Joan of Arc and Love of Everything from Chicago and supported The Jimmy Cake in addition to slots in Seomra Spraoi and Whelans. After their gigs with Autumn Owls they plan to head to the studio in September to record a full length album of soothing folky rock and experimentation!
The debut mini-album "Cut the Engines, Raise the Sails" is available in Road Records, Tower, Amazon MP3 and iTunes.
