News: FMC Tour 2013 Line-Up Announced

Posted: 09/10/2013 in Uncategorized


First Music Contact have just announced the line-up for this year’s FMC Tour – gracing the stages of venues nationwide in early November will be 3 of Ireland’s finest live acts…

LE GALAXIE can do no wrong at the moment – just when you think you’ve witness them play the gig of their lives, they go right ahead and top it with the very next outing. They’ve been showcasing new material from their second album (which is coming our way in January) to a hero’s welcome, most notably at their sold-out 3D extravaganza at Meeting House Square last month – here’s their latest banger, ‘Lucy Is Here’:

Dublin four-piece FUNERAL SUITS won me over big-time with their brilliant debut album Lily of the Valley  – it’s been a while since I’ve seen them perform live, save for a fleeting encounter at this year’s Longitude festival, so I can’t WAIT to catch them on the FMC Tour.  I’m very much looking forward to hearing some new Funeral Suits material – but in the meantime, one of my absolute favourite songs ‘Colour Fade’ does the job just fine:

DAITHÍ took the festival circuit by storm yet again this summer, and just keeps on going from strength to strength. Captivating to watch in live action, he produced one of THE anthems of summer in the form of ‘Chameleon Life’ – and based on the calibre of this tune, it’s exciting to think of what else he has up his sleeves…

If you want to catch these three stellar live acts, head along to these venues on these dates:

Thursday November 7th @ Roisin Dubh, Galway
Friday November 8th @ Dolans, Limerick
Saturday November 9th @ The Pavilion, Cork
Thursday November 14th @The Spirit Store, Dundalk
Friday November 15th @ TBC – Gigstarter Public Choice
Saturday November 16th@ The Workman’s Club, Dublin  

Tickets for all shows go on sale now on  and as well as via individual venue websites. Priced at €10, you’d be MAD not to snap some up…
