We Town Criers

Rock // Ballinlough, Roscommon

Band Biography

Intense live shows, contagious vocal melodies and guitars played the way they should be, honest and loud. We Town Criers believe in sounding big!

The Roscommon 4 Piece released their debut EP, Wake Up, in 2011 with involvement from Dave Hingerty (The Frames) and producer Ken Mc Hugh (Autamata/I'm your vinyl).

We Town Criers have appeared since at Other Voices, Vantastival, Knockanstockan, Belly Bang and Sunflowerfest, with a nationwide tour to be announced in early 2014.

In September 2013, We Town Criers released their debut album, Swing Beast.

Reviews for Swing Beast:

"I can’t stress how strong this album is and how much this deserves to be heard by any so called supporter of Irish music. If you’re a fan of dark alternative rock like Therapy? in their prime, this is for you. Even if you’re not, check it out anyway. You will not be disappointed." - Chew Your Own Fat

"Stunning vocals, tight riffs, wholehearted lyrics and a flawless rhythm section. An addictive listen ‘Swing Beast’ is a superb début effort from We Town Criers" - GoldenPlec

We Town Criers, Jesus where do I start. A four piece from Roscommon who successfully (and I really mean that) blend Tool, Everything Everything with a bit of Pearl Jam and great songwriting. It’s amazing, where the hell did these guys come from?! - We Are Noise
