MUNKY ‘7am’ Single launch in Whelan’s February 9th is sold out, 2nd date added due to demand, proceeds from the second show going to the Peter McVerry Trust in aid of the homeless crisis

Dublin’s alt-rockers MUNKY are releasing their second single ‘7am’ on 17th of January. The release will also be accompanied with a music video written and directed by the band’s frontman Zac Stephenson. This is the follow up to their smashing debut single ‘Hunter Gatherer Blues’ which resulted in a sold out Whelan’s mainstage show in February 2017. MUNKY made their mark on the Irish music scene last year with a plethora of high energy live performances around the country. Within a year they played Whelan’s Ones To Watch, opened for Le Galaxie, The Hot Sprockets and Raglans, were picked by Hot Press as one of the must see BIMM acts, played in Aviva Stadium and at festivals including Longitude festival, YS festival & Electric Picnic, as well as shows in Donegal, Dingle, Mullingar and Galway. The band are also known for their silly videos on Facebook, including a mock chat show with Eddie Durkan from RTE programme the Hardy Bucks.

Their ‘7am’ single launch will take place on the 9th of February which sold out within a month of the announcement and as a result a second date has been added, Saturday 10th of February. All the proceeds of this second date will be given to the Peter McVerry Trust to help combat the homeless crisis. Tickets are on sale now via eventbrite and donations will be welcome on the night.

Make sure to check these guys out. They put on an energetic swagger soaked show brimming with rich grooves, slick, psychedelic guitar and some hefty mosh ready chunks thrown in. It’s one not to miss we are looking forward to it for sure.

‘7am’ which was recorded by Graham Byrne in Herbert Place Studios and mastered by Fergal Davis will be available on all major streaming services and online stores January 17th.
