We are yours truly, Rrrrrrrrrred Enemyyyyyyyyy from Dublin, Ireland.

Joe Panama’s Overhead, The Albatross, New Secret Weapon, Wyvern Lingo, Loah, Frustration, Nibiru, Bitch Falcon, Val Normal, Bailer, Only Rivals, Tripwire, Shookrah, Those Thin Lizzy lads I guess and list could go on and on. We love Irish music!

What’s it really like touring?

Touring is basically a load of highly strung, excitable people doing the same thing every day, trying desperately to avoid arguments because you’re ‘on tour’ and arguing is a downer buzz with plenty of really delish highs and frustrating lows.

What’s your favourite city/town/venue to play?

It has to be Fibbers in Dublin. When it’s good, you just can’t beat it. I’m sure a lot of international bands would agree too. We’ve played and seen some crazy gigs!

What’s your ideal festival line-up?

Red Enemy / New Secret Weapon / Kiasmos / Pantera in that order.

What has been your biggest achievement of the year?

I guess finally releasing our debut album and that release show in the Button Factory. It was our biggest headline gig ever and just perfect in every way. We had all our friends on the bill and everyone came out to support. Special night.

What was the worst piece of advice you were given?
