We are delighted to announce that legendary Dublin band The Pale will be performing at this year’s The Acoustic Yard Music Festival Westport in The Clock Tavern Restaurant on Saturday May 11th.
The Pale are a hitting the road to mark the release of their latest album ‘Merciful Hour’ (due on April 12th) Produced by sonic maestro Keith Farrell (Duckworth Lewis Method, Cathy Davey, Pugwash), the album is one of constant surprises, building on the classic Pale template and expanding it musically and lyrically.
The Pale started life in Dublin’s Northside in the early 90’s but drew their influences from far beyond. For some they are best remembered for their hits ‘Butterfly’ and ‘Dogs with no tails’. But that is only the tip of the iceberg for a band that has steered clear of the beaten track.
Flirtations with chart success, forays into alternative circuses, tours way off the beaten path in Russia, Japan, Eastern Europe and beyond are all par for the course for a band that have refused to be categorised or trade off past glories. They continue to be one of the most prolific and polished recording bands in Ireland.
The Pale’s live reputation is hard earned, with sets jumping between laced up indie, reggae, Eastern European folk, all presented with a wry lyrical twist and frenetic energy. Never to be pigeonholed, a Pale gig will see them play dozens of songs drawing from a range of genres. Mandolins and bouzoukis duel with synths and drums, all propelled by their inimitable stage presence and striking musical prowess
