After previously releasing two albums and touring together for four years, the acoustic four-piece known as Garrett Wall Band have decided to rename themselves Track Dogs and will be back touring Ireland in March in support of their eponymous new album.
The current single "Move a Mountain" is on the RTE Radio 1 playlist and is also enjoying great airplay in Spain where the band are based. The new album is released digitally worldwide on March 25th and will see a shop release in Ireland on April 8th.
The album features 10 songs and two instrumentals including a reworking of the Nick Drake classic "Hazey Jane II" which was well suited to the band's unique line-up of trumpet, cajón, guitar and bass with four vocals.
The video to the band's current single was filmed in the west of Ireland around Lahinch and Clifden and was shot by Irish photographer Ronan Kirby who has also crafted 12 inspired photographs to accompany each song on the album and will feature in a 32 page booklet included with the physical release and a 17 page digital booklet available with the iTunes version of the album.
The bands Irish dates are
March 23 – Crane Lane Theatre, Cork
March 24 – Monroe's, Galway
March 25 – Backstage Theatre, Longford
March 26 – Harbour Bar, Bray
The Madrid-based band will also be embarking on an extensive tour of Spain with 18 dates already as part of their plan to play all 52 provinces of Spain in 2011.
