Grand Pocket Orchestra confirm new album

Having impressed us immensely with their debut album The Ice Cream, State is delighted to hear that Grand Pocket Orchestra will be releasing a follow up next month. Coming our way via the mighty Popical Island, Ronald & Sylma will be out on February 24th. Talking of the record, the band’s Paddy Hanna says “I don’t know if you heard our first album but it was quite messy, heck we wanted it to be messy, we like messy debuts. But we knew for sure that the follow up should be slightly more focused, better produced and all that. So I sat down, pen in hand for a few weeks and attempted to put together a coherent set of songs”.

Grand Pocket Orchestra play the following live dates around the release:

Feb 23rd, Limerick (Bourke’s Bar)
Feb 24th, Dublin (Whelan’s Upstairs)
Feb 25th, Cork (An Realt Dearg)
Mar 8th, Galway (Roisin Dubh)
Mar 17th, London
