‘Sleep Well’ marks Klubber Lang's first release since teaming up with Irish independent label FIFA Records.
Dublin alternative rock outfit Klubber Lang have returned with their rip-roaring new single, titled ‘Sleep Well’.
The riotous outfit presumably derive their title from James "Clubber" Lang, a fictional character created by Sylvester Stallone for the film Rocky III, which was released in 1982.
Complete with fast-paced, pounding rhythms, riff-laden hard-edged melodies and McGoldrick’s unique vocal delivery; ‘Sleep Well’ is a frenzied attack on the senses.
The track is the perfect follow up to their two previous singles, ‘There, there’ and ‘Not My Day’ - not to mention ample justification as to why there is a real level of expectation about the Dublin heavy hitters.
Both previous singles are bracing bolts of punk energy, oozing attitude and pin-sharp melodies.
Somewhat of a '90s supergroup, Klubber Lang are made up of Revelino guitarist Ciaran Tallon, ex-(sic) bass player Ciaran McGoldrick on vocals and bass, ex-Mexican Pets drummer Fin O’Leary and producer Ronan McHugh on keyboards.
Last October – 26 years to the week since the original release date and the same day as John Lennon’s 80th birthday – Irish band Revelino re-issued their eponymous debut album on vinyl. The album was initially released in 1994, with a sold-out debut show in the legendary Baggot Inn. Revelino received rave reviews, and in April 1995 they released 'Don’t Lead Me Down', which went on to feature in two film soundtracks.
