The Chess Club Records signees are returning to the Irish capital.
Coach Party have announced a show at The Workman's Cellar, Dublin for December 1st this year to promote their forthcoming debut album Killjoy. The band will play Voodoo Belfast on December 2nd.
Inspired by a broad palate of artists, the Isle of Wight band always find themselves drawn back to Nirvana, Sonic Youth and The Strokes, and contemporary artists like Wolf Alice, The Big Moon and Tame Impala.
Ultimately though, Coach Party’s primary drive to write and perform music comes from “the often entertaining struggle of real life.”
The Chess Club Records signees have dropped two singles this year, 'All I Wanna Do Is Hate' and 'Micro-Aggression'; both set to appear on the band's debut album Killjoy - out September 8th 2023.
Latest single ‘All I Wanna Do Is Hate’ is an eruption of energy that serves as a sign of things to come from the group’s self-produced 10-track project. Colliding riotous punk elements with carefree energy and flairs of sparkling electro-pop, the quartet kick the door down and blast the speakers.
“All I Wanna Do Is Hate is about acting out against people who are trying to help, but you’re not ready for that and choose to do the opposite of the advice you’re given,” says Coach Party figurehead Jess Eastwood. “This song is just about being incredibly angry, for what, is up to whoever is listening; but sometimes you need to go against everyone to learn a valuable lesson. Maybe you’ll write a cool angry song about it.”
Coach Party initially met each other as avid music fans – working in venues, playing together and meeting at the same gigs. The band eventually formed after Jess and guitarist Steph Norris decided to start performing as a duo, quickly realising that there was something special about the pair’s songwriting and bond, guitarist Joe Perry and drummer Guy Page soon joined the ranks.
