They’re the most exciting hard rock outfit to come out of Ireland in heaven knows how long. Lift Off @ The Music Show winners Shadowplay talk about collaborating with the lead singer from Toto and taking on the rock world on their own terms
It’s been a busy 12 months for Maynooth-based three-piece Shadowplay, who’ve been consolidating their position as one of the hardest working live outfits on the circuit. Over the past year, the band (whose moniker was inspired by the Rory Gallagher classic of the same name,) have performed with Bobby Kimball of Toto fame, and shared bills with The Coronas, Mundy, The Stunning, The Undertones and The Saw Doctors. Last summer, they headlined the Buncrana Music Festival, playing to a crowd of over 5,000 while they were selected by Today FM’s Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show to be taken to Austria as the “Ski Trip” band for a week, playing to audiences of 500 over five nights.
The single ‘In Drive’ is launched at Academy 2, Dublin March 10.
