AXIS OF “Finding St Kilda” Album LaunchPOCKET BILLIARDS, PIGS AS PEOPLE & 1930s

Having spent the last couple of years touring the UK and Ireland, as well as mainland Europe, clocking up shows alongside the likes of The Bronx, The Joy Formidable, Twin Atlantic and Therapy? along the way, Axis Of are now set to unleash their debut album, ‘Finding St Kilda’, produced by Rocky O’Reilly (And So I Watch You From Afar, Fighting With Wire) at Start Together Studios in their native Ireland earlier this year.
Speaking of the record and the band’s approach in general, Friers says, “We started playing music together as kids and we decided then we’d live by two concrete rules – We’d only play music we wanted to hear and write words we thought were important. For us, the album is the perfect representation of what we are. Written by Mastodon fans hooked on Fang Island!”
Crushingly heavy and littered with pop sensibility throughout, ‘Finding St Kilda’, is an undeniably original and ‘heart on your sleeve’ affair. It’s no surprise that Kerrang! has already declared that “cult status looks assured.”
Prompt any music fan of a certain age and they’ll soon tell you that now the bands have it easy and it was all different, back in the days of the Pound and the barricades. Axis Of take that notion out the back and give it a sound kicking, combining the fury and thinking of the first wave of punk with amazing musicianship and an ear for a tune.
This date marks the release of their debut album, Finding St. Kilda (produced by Rocky O’Reilly, ASIWYFA’s producer of choice.) With plaudits from the likes of Kerranng! and ATL, cult status is assured
