‘Tales from Hard Luck Town’ is an 11 track album with most featuring a story or character relating to ‘Hard Luck Town.’ Despite there being a dark undercurrent, many of the tracks are also upbeat and lighter in tone. The album includes a murder ballad and other themes include homelessness, seeking fulfilment, being sent to prison (‘Hydebank Hotel’), relationships, and drunken antics. The songs have a relatable feel, often being shaped by the band’s life experiences and observations.
As well as featuring on many local radio stations, such as Radio Ulster multiple times, and 6 Music they have also performed live on the only English speaking Radio Station in Ethiopia – Afro FM. They were also flown out to Ethiopia twice at the request of the Irish Embassy to perform at their St Patricks day celebrations. They have also just been booked to do their second tour of Germany.
