The Galway Street Club members are returning to Castleisland on Easter Sunday as part of their nationwide tour to promote their debut album Sovereign State of Madness.

The release has been getting rave reviews online.

Special July Night

“Since they visited on that special night last July their popularity has escalated pretty significantly, they have appeared several times since on the national airwaves and with that their Facebook following has grown to over 15,000 people, with fans all over the world and they will be heading off to tour Germany in April,” according to Kate McSweeney – a spokesperson for the promoting group, The Mad Ones.

Seven Different Countries

“The Galway Street Club is made up of 15 members hailing from seven different countries. This bunch is a unique fusion of musical backgrounds, instruments and voices.

“We feel extremely privileged that they named Castleisland amongst their venue giants from much bigger cities and towns including the Roisín Dubh in Galway, Whelan’s in Dublin, Trick McGarrigle’s in Sligo and Dolan’s in Limerick,” Kate added.

Lots of Colour

“We’re working hard to bring a similar festival feel to Nightowls on Easter Sunday night to that of the outdoor gig held last year on Castleisland RFC grounds. We’re aiming for lots of colour to mirror the colourful and international nature of the band.

The album itself was released online only this week and makes for fantastic listening. It’s lively, energetic and catchy and ideal for when you’ve a drink in hand and ready to enjoy a night out. We’re very excited about seeing it played live.

United Nations of Sound

We’re encouraging everyone to have a listen to it at the link below.

“Paudie Collins will deliver the united nations of sound to us sometime on Sunday and they are keen to meet some locals before the gig, as they really enjoyed the town last year.

“Kick off in nightowls is at 10.30pm and the band will be followed by a DJ and late bar. Tickets are €10.

“It’s gonna be a ‘Fun Lovin Time’ as per the album’s final track,” said an enthusiastic Kate.
