The energetic trio have just released their sophomore effort This is the Second Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank which features contributions from Mercury Prize nominated Villagers front man Conor O Brien and Choice Prize winner Richie ‘Jape’ Egan. Known for their explosive and energetic live performances, this will be Adebisi Shank’s last Irish performance before they embark on a third tour of Japan in late October.
