Alt-rock band The Altered Hours are set to play The Grand Social on November 26th.
The Altered Hours shared their new single ‘Radiant Wound’ and announced a host of Irish tour dates today.
The years ahead are set to be as exciting as ever for The Altered Hours, with the group recently signing to Pizza Pizza Records.
‘Radiant Wound’ was inspired by the Cork group’s dissatisfaction with the growing cost of rent in Cork and the ongoing housing crisis.
“The message with this track is simple, we love the city that has had such an impact on us as a band,” said co-lead singer Cathal MacGabhann about the track.
“Having already lived through one recession, and now with the current housing crisis ongoing, 'Radiant Wound' is a shared rage we feel towards these growing issues. It’s one from the guts,” he added.
‘Radiant Wound’ is a jaw cracking blend of psychedelic, new-wave and grunge. It is the post-punk group’s second release of 2021 and follows up ‘All Amnesia’ which dropped in April.
The Altered Hours will embark on a tour of Ireland and the UK later this year. It begins on October 29th at Cypress Avenue in Cork. The rising outfit will also play Roisin Dubh in Galway on November 4th and Dolan’s in Limerick on November 13th before they embark on the UK leg of the tour. The string of dates will end in Dublin’s Grand Social on November 26th. Tickets are on sale now.
The Altered Hours released their enigmatic debut album In Heat Not Sorry back in 2016, carving out a name for themselves after recording the project in Berlin. 2018's On My Tongue EP followed, alongside numerous singles.
