On the final night of their sold out five-night residency in Dublin’s 3Arena, IMRO took the opportunity to present Picture This and their manger Brian Whitehead with their IMRO Award on behalf of their No.1 album ‘MDRN LV’.
The IMRO Number 1 Award was introduced to acknowledge IMRO members who reach number 1 in the album charts here in Ireland.
‘MDRN LV’, was released in February 2019. Produced by Jayson Dezuzio [Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors], the record represents a creative high watermark for the quartet as they expand their signature style and venture into uncharted sonic territory. The new album includes the current singles ‘One Drink’ and ‘Modern Love’.
The biggest act in Ireland and the nation’s hottest musical export in decades, Picture This arrived as a phenomenon with their self-titled 2017 full-length debut, ‘Picture This’. Certified triple-platinum in Ireland, it held the #1 spot in the Irish Album Chart for four weeks, while topping the Streaming Chart for seven weeks. Moreover, it has been the most streamed album by an Irish act for two years in a row.
Two years since their formation, they’ve impressively sold over 300K tickets, concluding 2017 with a sold-out UK and Ireland tour highlighted by gigs at O2 Shepherd’s Bush London, SSE Arena Belfast, and a two-night stand at 3Arena in Dublin. This summer marked their first stadium tour in Ireland, which capped off with a 35,000-person stadium show selling out over 3 months prior.
The band have just completed their MDRN LV European tour which included shows in London, Manchester, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Amsterdam and Stockholm. It also included their sold out five-night residency in Dublin’s biggest indoor arena, 3Arena.
