A Tribute to Kerbdog – Academy 2, Dublin

-Pledge: A Tribute to Kerbdog’ is a tribute album to legendary Irish rock band KERBDOG. Despite splitting up in 1998 and only recording two albums, KERBDOG has influenced many present day bands. The album will be released at The Academy 2 on Saturday 6th March.

This album mixes up and coming rock bands with more established acts such as Frank Turner, Jamie Lenman (Reuben) and Dave McPherson (InMe). The album also features sleeve notes from legendary producers Jack Endino and GGGarth Richardson who worked on Kerbdog’s two albums. Furthermore, the album also contains notes from Kerbdog’s Cormac Battle, Simon Young (Kerrang), Ken McGrath (Rock Sound), Edwin McFee (NME & Alternative Ulster).

This album is a tribute to a band that never received the acclaim or attention they deserved. A sentiment shared by journalists in the sleeve notes of album and the bands.
