Irish indie legends The Blizzards (June 20) have been added to a growing Bulmers Live at Leopardstown series taking place at the famous Dublin racecourse from June – August, 2019. It will be The Blizzards first appearance at the summer series, which also sees the Bulmers Carnival Night return on July 18. Already announced for the summer extravaganza are multi-million selling US rapper Coolio, alongside some of Ireland’s best live bands with The Stunning, HamsandwicH and Something Happens all set to play.
Multi-award winning and platinum album selling artists The Blizzards are one of the most powerful and impressive live acts to ever come out of Ireland. A four-piece power punk pop outfit, their charisma and untampered energy charm all who witness their magnetic and commanding performances.
Propelled by melodic and dynamic hooks, at the core of their sound is guitar -driven song writing that houses a heart of pop, and a soul of distinctive lyrical storytelling. Their award-winning debut album A Public Display of Affection was produced by LA based Michael Beinhorn (Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Soundgarden) and remained in the Top 20 for 18 weeks, followed by a critically acclaimed second album, Domino Effect. The band have achieved exceptional success to date opening for the likes of Oasis, The 1975 and AC/DC to name just a few.
Now, fresh off the back of a sold out Irish tour in late 2018, The Blizzards are set to command 2019 with one of the most anticipated records of the year. Their third full length album is titled The Last Great Algorithm and presents exceptional levels of creative originality. Produced by Philip Magee (Kodaline, The Script), first single Love Me Later was placed on heavy rotation across all radio and was followed up with the smash hit I Need A Win, a highly original and influential hip hop/rock collaboration with Tebi Rex.
