The Dublin-based trio are set to cap off a landmark year at the Sound House.
Less than eight months after the release of their debut single 'Hush', The Claque have announced a headline gig at the Sound House, Dublin on Saturday, December 21.
Made up of old friends Alan Duggan (Girl Band), Kate Brady and Paddy Ormond (formerly of Jet Setter), the Dublin-based trio have gained a fast following on the back of their genre-blending and challenging, yet simultaneously catchy sound.
Speaking to Hot Press earlier this year ahead of the release of Girl Band's The Talkies, Alan discussed how The Claque formed during Girl Band's hiatus:
"I really wanted to keep making music, and me and Paddy Ormond had always wanted to do something together. We’ve been close friends for a long time, and I’d always show him snippets of demos that Girl Band were working on, and he would send me snippets of what Jet Setter were doing. We always seemed to like the same specific things about songs, so it just seemed like an opportunity. We sat down with Kate Brady and started writing."
As well as a stellar support set for Idles at the Iveagh Gardens this summer, The Claque have kept themselves busy with a string of acclaimed festival appearances and gigs across Ireland and the UK. They're also gearing up for an appearance at Botanique in Brussels alongside Girl Band and Fontaines D.C. on November 7.
Tickets for The Claque's Sound House gig are €11.80 and on sale this Friday, November 1, at 1oam.
