Scattered Ashes

Alternative // Dublin City, Dublin

Dublin's SCATTERED ASHES are an abrasive and angular postpunk four-piece defined by urgent guitars and prophetic vocals. After forming in early 2020, the band received immediate support and airplay from Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 6) and KEXP upon the release of their debut single 'Love Is Not An Option.'

The hype created from the international attention led to their first physical release 'The Parallel Lines EP' selling out completely within its first week in Rough Trade stores across the UK. 2022 opened up with them listed as one of the Hot Press ‘Hot for 2022’ and saw the release of ‘Feral’ and 'This New Will' to much critical acclaim landing on major Spotify Official playlists such as All New Punk, Melomania, All New Rock, The Punk List and Alternative Ireland.

The band followed this in 2023 with a string of sellout headline UK/IRE dates alongside supports with She Past Away, Clan of Xymox, The Chameleons and She Wants Revenge, major festival appearances at Beyond The Pale, Sea Sessions and Electric Picnic Festival, as well as a 2FM live session with Dan Hegarty. Subsequent releases ‘Battles’ and 'Homeowners' were heavily championed by Steve Lamacq (BBC6) receiving multiple daytime plays, as-well as receiving playlisting from John Kennedy (Radio X) and Rodney Bingenheimer (Sirius XM).

The band opened up 2024 embarking on a mammoth UK tour with Meryl Streek, along with being named as one of Louder magazine's '10 Irish Artists You Should Be Listening To In 2024.' The band are now set to release their sophomore EP 'All That Is Solid Melts Into Air' via Blowtorch Records June 14th, with singles 'Kingdom' and 'Ether' already receiving support from BBC Introducing and XS Manchester.
