General Fiasco launch new album

GENERAL Fiasco return to Belfast this June for two very special live shows.

They will play an intimate 18+ show at The Stiff Kitten on Friday, June 15, followed by a 14+ show in Mandela Hall the following night to officially launch their brand new LP.

‘Unfaithfully Yours’ comes out on Monday, June 18 on Dirty Hit Records.

Tickets for both shows are priced just £12 plus Booking Fee, and are on sale now from www.shine.net, The Stiff Kitten and Ticketmaster Outlets Nationwide.

Hailing from Bellaghy, General Fiasco are Owen Strathern on bass, brother Enda on guitar, Stephen Leacock on drums and new guitarist/keyboard player Stuart Bell who comes from Lurgan.

The band’s debut album ‘Buildings’ saw them play festivals and dates around the world including Japan, New Zealand and the USA as well as festivals such Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury, Oxegen and T-In the Park. They also played support to Snow Patrol at the biggest concert ever to happen in Northern Ireland at Bangor’s Ward Park to 45,000 people.

They toured relentlessly for months, picking up supports with the Enemy, Kids in Glass Houses, One Night Only and Fighting with Wire amongst others and found themselves with a Kerrang! Magazine ‘Best Newcomer’ award nomination too. The band have been writing and recording for most of 2011, but came back with an EP ‘Waves’ from which ‘The Age You Start Losing Friends’ won ‘Best Song’ at the NI Music Awards held as part of Belfast Music Week.
