SICK LOVE deliver a high-energy, no holds barred rock show all wrapped up in the most anthemic songs. Described by Hot Press magazine as “ defiantly pushing against the grain of indie and folk bands in Ireland”, they broke through with sold out shows as well as festival slots at Electric Picnic and Indiependence. The band were quickly marked by many as ones to watch, with the Irish Times preaching they are “set to join the Super League of Irish rock bands”.
SICK LOVE are no stranger to the gritty, do-it yourself Irish music scene. Having risen from the ashes of former band Sub Motion, that relentlessly worked through changing line- ups and sounds that crafted a name for themselves following a number of successful self- released tracks and a series of successful support slots (Crazy Town, The Strypes, Fangclub, Otherkin).
Their newest release 'Gun In Your Pocket' was written as a response to the #MeToo movement. It describes the unclear, grey area of sexual assault and consent that people often feel uncomfortable talking about. The track received incredible Spotify support, featuring on numerous editorial playlists which included New Music Friday, The Rock List, Hot New Bands, An Alternative Éire, Counter and Rock World China.
The band have been touring extensively around the UK and Ireland, including a full capacity MCD headline show in the Sound House, the DrMartens Boot Room in Camden, Camden Rocks Festival, main stage at the Great Estate Festival, supporting Dashboard Confessional at The Academy, all in the short time since SICK LOVE has emerged.
