The Workman’s Club Presents
NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY
Tuesday 31 December 2019
New Year’s Eve begs lots of questions.
What to do? Where to go? How do I cram the most amount of craic and serious live music into one night. In one place. With all my mates.
Luckily, this press release is here to answer those VERY questions.
This New Year’s Eve there is only one place for lol bandits and revellers to be – that’s our place. Join us at The Workman’s Club for a serious night of proper LIVE MUSIC from the best live band around.
“Deceptively infectious, with sharp hooks and sharp nails.”
Steve Lamacq BBC Radio 6
Pillow Queens formed in winter 2016 with the immediate release of their demo EP Calm Girls, which sparked a successful string of UK and Irish dates & festival appearances.
Their second EP State of the State made its way onto BBC 6 Music’s playlists, with Steve Lamacq calling them “deceptively infectious, with sharp hooks and sharp nails”. The lead single Favourite picked up lots of great support on the UK’s national airwaves, including plays on BBC RADIO 1, BBC Introducing, RADIO X & Amazing Radio. After two more UK tours, and two sellout hometown gigs, the band soon found themselves more and more comfortable on bigger stages, opening for the likes of American Football and Pussy Riot, capping off summer 2018 with a stadium performance opening for Idles & Future Islands.
This quick momentum led to the band working with Mercury Prize nominated producer Tommy McLaughlin for their next single Gay Girls – which received a nomination for the RTE Choice Music Prize song of the year, as well as International airplay on NPR’s World Cafe & KEXP.
2019 saw Pillow Queens venture into mainland Europe, with an appearance at this year’s Eurosonic Festival, followed by an impressive string of European tour dates supporting Soak.
Pillow Queens are working on their debut album due for release in early 2020. Their new single Brothers was released last Friday, 1 November. . AND NOW …they’ll open 2020 with YOU. AT OUR GAFF.
We’ll be revealing more soon – but in the meantime, grab a ticket and get ready to hit the dance floor until the wee hours. Say RAFTER to 2019 and a big AH SURE WHAT’S THE STORY, HOW ARE YA ALTOGETHER to 2020
