Single “Animals” Out September 4th
Taken from the album
“Springtime for the Flaws” Out in Autumn
Live show: Whelan’s, September 4th
After unavoidable delays, secret band break ups, life changes and a lot of late nights Irish indie quartet The Flaws are back. Once called “the hottest act in Ireland” by Hot Press magazine, the band have had a tumultuous past but return with brand new single Animals which will be officially launched at a special comeback live show in Whelan’s on September 4th.
This Co Monaghan band exploded onto the Irish music scene in 2007 with their debut album Achieving Vagueness. Their first LP catapulted them into the spotlight cracking the top 20 and earning them a nomination for both the Choice award and Best Irish band in the Meteor awards.
Over the next three years the band toured heavily, playing Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, Oxegen and pretty much any other festival you can think of. In 2010 they released their second album Constant Adventure which cemented them as prominent figures in the Irish music scene.
Following the departure in 2012 of The Flaws’ original bass player Dane McMahon the band were thrown into a transitional phase. With Paul Mallon standing in on base duties the band recovered and soon began exchanging ideas for the future of their music.
Combining the drive and urgency of Achieving Vagueness with the melodic sensibilities of Constant Adventure, the band feels that their upcoming third album Springtime for the Flaws is their best record yet. Lead single ‘Animals’ is a prime example of the band at their most potent. With the album due in Autumn and a renewed sense of purpose this promises to be the most exciting phase of The Flaws thus far.
