Badhands to Release Debut Album this Week

Badhands is the musical project of Dublin songwriter and musician Dan Fitzpatrick. His recently completed debut album, entitled ‘Predictable Boy’, began as a collaboration with producer and bass player Tom Cosgrave (The Minutes), then quickly evolved in to a more expansive project with the enlistment of multi-instrumentalist Aoife Ruth, drummer Ken Mooney, and engineer Chris Barry. The end result is a collection of vivid, textured songs that range in tone between dark and brooding to frantic and energetic, with moments of genuine euphoria weaved in to the mix, echoing at times the likes of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Leonard Cohen, Arcade Fire and Villagers.  With a strong focus on lyrics and vocals the album explores themes such as laziness, loneliness, loss and madness. The record is beautifully intimate but also has an accessibility that will quickly capture the imagination of the listener. 

‘Predictable Boy’ marks Fitzpatrick’s first venture as a solo artist, having previously worked as a musician and songwriter for years with the likes of The Mighty Stef, The Last Tycoons, Paddy Hanna and Maud in Cahoots. The album is set for release on November 9th 2018 with  a Dublin launch show at The Workmans Club on November 17th and a nationwide tour.

Badhands’ debut single ‘Waves’ was released in November 2017, and was soon followed by an impressive run of live gigs, namely a performance at the Whelans Ones to Watch festival, a packed headline show in The Workmans Club, and a sold out gig at Vicar Street supporting Michael McDonald.

November 16th – Bennigans, Derry
November 17th – The Workmans Club, Dublin
November 22nd – The Roisin Dubh, Galway
November 24th – Broken Home, Newbridge
December 7th – Pharmacia, Limerick
