Ares Redemption are a Laois based rock 4 piece made up of Bonnie Derwin Lawlor on Vocals/keys/guitar, Jack on guitar/vocals/keys, Noel John Touhy on bass and Alan Eakins on Drums. Formed in late 2020 by Jack, who set about recording songs he had written with the view the band would come later. The line-up took a year to complete with Noel John joining for the recording of their debut single “The stars will cleanse” and Bonnie joining in December of 2021 to take up the role of lead vocals, with Jack having taken on vocal duties for “The stars will cleanse”.
The band are currently building towards the release of their second single “No second chance” due out this summer.
Jack is the chief songwriter and tends to write with an honesty that can be both self-reflecting and brutal, but are beautifully captured by the emotion of Bonnies voice. The writing style varies and while the band fly under the umbrella of rock, some songs could be seen as soft while others border metal. The band also refuse to be pigeon holed and have adapted sets to an acoustic audience as well as playing to a rock crowd.
