Revs man Rory hits the solo trail
Former Revs frontman Rory Gallagher opens his solo account with the August 15 release of his God Bless The Big Bang album.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 21 Jul 2008
Deciding for obvious reasons to dispense with the Gallagher part of his name, Rory has lined up an Irish tour that takes him to Barry’s Grange, Sligo (August 9); Electric Avenue, Waterford (14); HMV Grafton Street, Dublin (15); The Hub, Dublin (16); Tuam Arts Festival (17); Abbey Hotel, Donegal (20); Cleere’s, Kilkenny (22); Roisin Dubh, Galway (23); and Spirit Store, Dundalk (24).
After the demise of The Revs, Gallagher relocated to Lanzarote where he’s been plying his trade on the bar circuit and writing pop-rock gems like ‘Rain Dancer’, which suggest that a second bite at the cherry awaits.

But behind the brash exterior is the fascinating story of three dedicated young musicians who have overcome their status as outsiders to build one of the biggest and most loyal grass roots following of any local act. Now with the release of their debut studio album, Suck, they are ready to go international.
