Kerry artist Junior Brother adds a Dublin stop to his lengthy tour behind forthcoming album 'Pull The Right Rope.'
Kerry up and comer Junior Brother has announced a new show at Lost Lane, Dublin’s newest music venue. The artist announced their debut album, Pull The Right Rope, only a week ago, detailing its nine tracks and the journey they took before completion.
Of the album, Ronan Kealy, the man behind the music, says “The 9 songs range varied emotions,” with each creating “other emotions and mindsets within them, conflicting and corresponding with one another, creating a river of reckless abandon.” It was written over the course of five years and recorded during 2017 and 2018 in Ailfionn Studios with Chris Barry. Kealy says his time at studying literature at University College Cork contributed a great deal to the record, taking his stage name from Jacobean’s The Revenger’s Tragedy, and drawing on his education to create a “unique and striking poetic voice.”
In his short time performing Kealy has gained some high profile fans such as Cilian Murphy and Blindboy Boatclub. His show at Lost Lane is scheduled for the 15th of June, and will go on sale this coming Friday, 26th of April, at 9 AM local time. He also has several upcoming dates double headlining with Powpig, and a full tour of his own, both of which you can find more information on below. Pull The Right Rope is scheduled for release on the 24th of May, but you can listen to single ‘Full Of Wine’ right here.
