‘The Wayside’ from Foot Squeaker Out Now

From the bear’s lower back emerges Foot Squeaker, who have just released their second single ‘The Wayside’. Three Rock n’ Rollers with one rule: keep it hard and fast. Formed in 2018, Diarmuid and Mike spent that full year sculpting their songs and all the while Mike would quality control the riffage. Mick Byrne joined on bass in early 2019 and the band rehearsed for the next few months.

Citing musical influences such as Neil Young, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Paul Weller, Queens Of The Stone Age, Pearl Jam, Weezer, Supergrass, Blur and Beck, the band wield the combined explorative sounds of the above whilst maintaining an air of individuality.

The band’s first gig was to a packed audience as part of The Gap Arts Festival curated by Marc Aubele (Bell X1, Join Me In The Pines). Comerford had the audience eating from the wood of his Tele, singing along instantly with songs they had never heard in their lives. The band knew they had something special.

In January 2020 they headed to Hellfire Studios, Dublin, to record four tracks with Ivan Jackman (Chad Channing, Sinéad O’ Connor, Girlband). Their debut single, ‘No Connection’, was released 29.05.20. ‘Wayside’ is their upcoming release scheduled for Aug 7th 2020.

Diarmuid says of ‘The Wayside’ lyrics –

My Da always said he had gotten more hardship than me growing up. I reckon his Da said the same and now I’m saying the same to my sons. There is one thing however that has been consistent with men through time and that’s the inability to talk about their feelings. Us men need to speak up when we need help, reach out to somebody, anybody, just reach out.”

When the live scene returns Foot Squeaker hope to share the stage with some of their favourite Irish rockers: Fangclub, Silverbacks, Bitch Falcon, Thumper and Fontaines DC to name a few.
