The Flaws exploded onto the Irish music scene in late 2007 when their debut long player ‘Achieving Vagueness’ was released to universal critical acclaim. It entered the Irish Top 20 and lead to both Choice and Meteor nominations. Having toured the debut for over 18 months solid playing some amazing shows across the country including memorable sets at Glastonbury, Electric Picnic ’08 and Oxegen the band took a well deserved break.

In October 2010 the band released their new album ‘Constant Adventure’. This much anticipated second album was recorded at Tumbleweed Studios in Dundalk, was self produced and mixed and engineered by Jason Varley. The end result showcased just how much The Flaws have grown as a band, track after track boasts beautiful harmonies and dazzles with glittering guitars.

With the departure of original bass player Dane McMahon in early 2012 the band were compelled to look themselves squarely in the eye.  They did what they have always done best.  They sat down and wrote some dazzling new songs.  One of these was Let’s Fight and working with producer Rob Kirwan over the course of a couple of days in late May the band beat, welded and angle-ground the raw material of the song into their toughest, punchiest (excuse the pun) track to date.   Under an exterior made from solid muscle the hallmarks of the band’s sound are there, Colin Berrill’s relentless drum attack, Paul mallon’s pulsing bass, the soaring harmonies, and the sumptuous melodic interplay between Paul Finn and Shane Malone’s guitars.    With more fantastic songs in their arsenal  it’s safe to say that The Flaws are back and this time the gloves are off.

The Flaws launch ‘Let’s Fight’ with a show in Whelan’s on Friday 6th July.
