The Blizzards’ New Film Available Now on RTE Player

Multi-award winning Irish power punk pop band The Blizzards new film “The Blizzards: Behind The Music” is available now on the RTÉ Player. The tell-all star studded short film documents the band’s exploits over the past year and has previously premiered in Dublin’s Irish Film Institute (IFI) and screened at the Galway Film Fleadh in July. The film can be viewed here

A chance to get up close and personal with the band, the Jeff Doyle directed film, follows Bressie, Dec, Justin and Louize and their by all accounts, unorthodox, manager Duncan as they navigate the challenges of the music industry. The film features an array of big names sharing their impressions of The Blizzards, from Picture This, to Laura Whitmore to Stormy Daniels. 

As if the film wasn’t enough the band have also recently released an album ‘The Last Great Algorithm’, along with the first single from the album ‘Who Would Want To Be In A Guitar Band?’ and are currently embarking on a UK & Ireland Tour.

The Blizzards, bruised and battered after releasing two albums with major labels, have decided to go it alone with the release of their highly anticipated third album independently. The albums release has been so long awaited that the band even made a film, “The Blizzards: Behind The Music” to document the process.

One of the most anticipated albums of the year, ‘The Last Great Algorithm’ is available now across all physical and digital platforms. Produced by Philip Magee (Kodaline, The Script), ‘The Last Great Algorithm’ presents exceptional levels of creative originality with first single ‘Who Would Want To Be In A Guitar Band?’ out now.

Speaking of the single Bressie of The Blizzards said: “The track was borne out of the very considered feedback from a media playlister about the perception that one of our songs was “too guitary”. Shocked at realising that guitars were now illegal, we had two choices. Give up, or write this song. We gave up actually. But our manager kicked our asses so here’s the song we wrote to retaliate.”

A busy few months awaits, with The Blizzards currently embarking on their UK and Ireland Tour. Tickets for all dates are on sale now. Visit Ticketmaster and local venue box offices for tickets.
