The legendary Irish band have shared the video for their new single, 'We Had It All'.
Stockton's Wing have shared their first new music in over 20 years, with the release of the video for their new song, 'We Had It All'. The proceeds from the single, which will be launched tomorrow, are going to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland.
The Irish band have also announced new tour dates in Galway and Kilkenny as part of their 'Retrospective’ tour, in addition to shows in Dublin, Cork, Clare and Meath in April and May. ‘A Retrospective’ tells the story of Stockton's Wing through music, songs and stories and their vast music catalogue spanning four decades - from the early recordings of Take a Chance to the innovative, critically acclaimed Light in the Western Sky, as well as the excitement of a big band sound on Full Flight and Stockton’s Wing Live, and the stunning return to basics on The Crooked Rose. Tickets are on sale now for all shows.
Stockton's Wing is made up of a collective of musicians who have stepped in and out over the years, all adding their own sounds to the band. This tour will feature special guests and regulars including Tara Breen, Karol Lynch, Paul Roche, Mike Hanrahan and Paul McSherry. During their 40-year career, Stocktons Wing recorded and performed with Ronnie Drew, The Dubliners, Sammy Davis Junior, Maura O'Connell, Val Doonican, Sharon Shannon, Moxie, Sean McGuire, Finbar Furey and The Clancy Brothers, played at both Michael Jackson ‘Thriller’ shows in Ireland and appeared in Oscar nominated movie The Field featuring John Hurt and Richard Harris.
In a statement, frontman Mike Hanrahan discussed his connection to Multiple Sclerosis:
“Two of my close musician friends Mark Gilligan and Niall O’Callanáin have been living with MS for a number of years. Their courage and determination to adjust their lives through sheer positive thinking is inspirational. We are delighted to be involved and urge everyone to download the single, all proceeds will go directly to MS Ireland who provide such a high level of support and care for thousands living with the condition.”
