Dublin, County Dublin


‘Breakin’ Out’ touches on many themes, primarily the importance of being in the moment, the right now. Life can be tricky. Life can dictate a narrative for you if you let it. Don’t let it! Observations are delivered with a wry smile and at times, lonesome clarity.

Recorded in ‘The Meadow’ in Wicklow by The Deaf Brothers at the beginning of 2016, this record is sure to enhance your summer. These nine new songs see Glimmermen expand on their core guitar, bass, and drums line-up, with brass arrangements that embellish the stripped-back sound of their critically acclaimed debut ‘I’m Dead’ (2013). The result is a more accessible album, while still retaining the distinctive cutting edge of their live shows.

Glimmermen take rock and roll back to its primitive core. having quickly earned a reputation for their intense live shows, the band (Gav Cowley - guitar, vocals, J. Bassetti - bass, Phil Murray - drums, Dave Prendergast - trumpet) released their debut EP “Satellite People” in 2012 with comparisons to Television, Pop Group and Mission of Burma. They followed up with their J.Robbins - recorded debut ‘I’m Dead’ in 2013. Since then, they have played shows up and down the country including festivals such as Electric Picnic.

‘Breaking’ Out’ will be available on vinyl LP, digital download and streaming.

Press for Glimmermen’s 'I'm Dead' LP:
Glimmermen have also manage to create a record of nine completely individual, unique songs – a feat which is surprisingly rare in a modern industry where musicians, especially smaller ones, rarely step outside of their comfort zone. 'I’m Dead' really is a pleasure to listen to - Indulge Sound (UK)

"Glimmermen shine brightly. Look no further than 'Last Song', two and a half minutes of near-perfect power pop, or bittersweet lead single, 'This Town', as addictive as chocolate heroin" - Hot Press

There's a grittiness and urgency here that thrills, the debut album from this Dublin trio hits you like a punch in the midriff - Irish Independent

"A raw but engaging record full of accomplished and powerful songs" - Irish Daily Star

"The forces of light and darkness collide in fractured bass-and-guitar interplay and raw-throated bellows" - Spin (US)
