Alt-punk rock quartet, Empty Lungs, release their new EP, “Stand Up”, this February. Recorded at Start Together Studios, Belfast and engineered, mixed and mastered by Rocky O’Reilly, it was produced by Rocky O’Reilly and Empty Lungs.
Empty Lungs played their first show in May 2011 and since then have released a 3 track single, music video and have received airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Ulster and Dublin’s XFM. Their explosive live shows have seen them take to the road around Ireland and the UK and led to them sharing the stage with bands like THE SUBWAYS, DEAD TO ME, LEMURIA, CHEAP GIRLS, GENERAL FIASCO, JAPANDROIDS, FRANZ NICOLAY (the holdsteady), FIGHTING WITH WIRE, BEANS ON TOAST and BANGERS.
The ”Stand Up” EP will be self-released in association with Quarantine Collective digitally on 16th February and physically on 23rd February 2013.
It will consist of 6 tracks of passionate, hook driven, anthemic rock and roll. With a sound thats hard to pigeon hole it combines explosive punk rock and post-hardcore with 90’s indie rock and at times has echoes of folk and Americana. After its release the band plan to hit the road hard around Ireland, UK and Europe.
