The current Hot Press cover stars are set to play the prestigious industry showcase early next year.
The first batch of European artists who will be showcasing their talent at Eurosonic Noorderslag 2014 have just been confirmed and Cavan teen The Strypes are Ireland's name on the bill.
It's little surprise that they've earned RTÉ 2fm's nomination – the station takes care of Ireland's Eurosonic affairs – given the young rockers' incredible 2013 has seen them top the album charts at home and give Arctic Monkeys a run for their money in the UK with their debut Snapshot, rock the likes of Electric Picnic and, of course, grace the cover of Hot Press.
Now they'll play the 28th edition of Eurosonic Noorderslag. Running from January 15 – 18 next year, the European music conference and showcase festival has done wonders for Irish artists over the years – Little Green Cars, Kodaline and James Vincent McMorrow among them.
