Alternative rock band Royseven will be joined by singer-songwriter Brad Heidi at their first gig post-hiatus at the Grand Social, which sold out within minutes.
Royseven's upcoming show at the Grand Social in Dublin sold out within minutes of tickets being available. The show, which is set to take place on September 1, is the first for the band following their seven-year-long hiatus.
The alternative rock group – comprised of frontman Paul Walsh, guitarist Sam Garland, guitarist Eamonn Barrett, bassist Bernard O'Neill, keyboardist Paul O'Hara, and drummer Darragh Oglesby – released their debut album, The Art of Insincerity, in 2006. Following the release of their sophomore album, You Say, We Say, in 2011, the Dublin band announced they were splitting up in 2014.
During the hiatus, frontman Paul Walsh began working with RTÉ, presenting shows like Doctors on Call and Gifted Live. Walsh was also a guest mentor on The Voice Ireland.
In February, Royseven announced their return and celebrated with a livestream from Dublin's The Button Factory on Valentine's Day. They also announced the re-issue of their debut album in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their hit single, 'We Should Be Lovers,' and began releasing their music on streaming platforms.
At the Grand Social, Royseven will be joined by Brad Heidi, who will open the show. Heidi has previously been featured in Hot Press in On Our Radar and Hot For 2021 Irish Acts. The young Irish singer-songwriter, who originally built his following by busking in Galway, has also performed for the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series.
