The Drones – Whelan’s, Dublin (CANCELLED)

The Drones return to the UK in Autumn 2009 for a ten-date tour of the UK and Ireland. Like their recent sold out show at London’s Luminaire and the subsequent string of European appearances, The Drones will be showcasing their recent album Havilah Live @ Whelans this November 8th. Tickets are €13.50 on sale now through Ticketmaster and other usual outlets nationwide. Booking Line: 0818 719 300.

Havilah is brimful of the intensity, innovation and integrity that have made The Drones one of Australian rock’s most critically acclaimed acts. Replete with contrast, Havilah juxtaposes bombast with beauty, roaring aggression and violent guitars with sublime melancholy lyricism. Lead singer Gareth Liddiard’s incendiary voice lights up the angular poetry of their songs, as he ruminates on the nature of (in no particular order), the moon (“Penumbra”), divorce (“The Drifting Housewife”), and the acquisition of godlike power and the cargo cultism of John Frum (“I Am the Supercargo”).

The Drones are:
Gareth Liddiard – Guitar/Vocals, Mike Noga – Drums/Percussion/Backing Vocals, Fiona Kitschin – Bass/Backing Vocals, Dan Luscombe -Guitar/Piano/Melodica/Backing Vocals

The Drones Live @ Whelans November 8th. Tickets are €13.50 on sale now through Ticketmaster and other usual outlets nationwide.
