Relish announce date for Vicar St
5th May 2018
‘I was just blown away by them’ Larry Mullen, U2
‘At last a band from this side of the Atlantic that know what they’re doing’ Brian May, Queen
Having performed at Vicar St as part of Sinead O’Connor’s band (as guitarist and drummer respectively) in support of her No1 album “I’m not Bossy, I’m The Boss” Kenny and Carl felt the illustrious venue was finally calling them for a full RELISH show to mark the release of the new RELISH album on April 27th 2018.
After co-writing and performing the soundtrack for Oscar winning director John Carney’s latest Hollywood movie “Sing Street” (nominated for a Golden Globe in 2017), and touring the world as part of Sinead O’Connor’s band, (producing & performing her track for the Blind Willie Johnson Tribute album “God Don’t Never Change”), Kenny and Carl finally returned to the stage in support of their re-release of ‘Wildflowers’ and ‘Karma Calling’ through a new deal with Universal Music, and made a big impact with the new track that accompanied it “Got It Made”.
Though not officially released as a stand-alone single it reached the top 20 twenty of the Irish airplay charts.
Having had pop hits and rock hits RELISH have always blurred the lines between genres, but with success from Asia to the UK and supporting bands as diverse as U2, At The Drive In and Kelis, and admirers ranging from Brian May, to Sinead O’Connor, to Paul Weller, to U2, RELISH have created their own place to exist, breaking down musical barriers with every new release.
Previous releases saw RELISH work with such acclaimed producers as John Leckie (Radiohead/The Stone Roses) and Al Clay (Stereophonics/The Pixies). Highlights have seen 4 chart-topping Irish singles, No1 in the Japanese airplay charts and even the unlikely request from Westlife to cover their single ‘Rainbow Zephyr’ reworked as ‘Hey Whatever’ which was a UK Top 5 and international hit. Past RELISH releases have proven gold and platinum selling albums.
