After all The Frank and Walters will perform live @ The Garbo’s Venue in Castlebar tonight April 15th
The Frank & Walters are synonymous with great albums, radio hits and a live show that has taken them all over the world during the course of a celebrated and critically acclaimed career. The new album, Songs for the Walking Wounded, delivered more classic Franks’ melodies, alongside some poignant tracks on what is perhaps the band’s most personal album to date.
Throughout Songs for the Walking Wounded, the Franks’ perennial sense of what makes a perfect indie pop song rings true, yet there is a sense that there is something more profound at work here, something that is maybe as well-disguised as many of the anxieties and complexities being conveyed. And much like the people who struggle to keep these feelings at bay, the album is worth taking a little time to get to know properly, to see and hear what is going on behind the facade.
The launch show at Cork Opera House will be the Frank & Walters first show at Cork Opera House since their sold out 25th anniversary gig in October 2014. Since appearing on Top of the Pops during the 90s, while also gracing the covers of NME and Melody Maker, the Frank & Walters have consistently delivered classic indie pop in the form of hits such as ‘After All’, ‘Fashion Crisis Hits New York’ and ‘Indie Love Song’.
The band’s last album, Songs for The Walking Wounded , saw the Frank & Walters reach a whole new audience, both at home and abroad, with gigs in the US and as far as Japan for the first time.
The Franks have also become regular festival favourites at some of Europe and Ireland’s biggest summer events, recently playing Electric Picnic 2016 and the Shine On Weekender in the UK.
Tickets for tonight’s show at The Garbo’s Venue Castlebar will be available on the door, Doors are at 21:00pm, Support from Train Room and Con Murphy.
