The Bullet in The Brick - 12" Launch

We will launch the 12” of our 1916 piece “The Bullet in the Brick” with a special performance in Whelan's on Thursday, December 1st. This will be a performance with electric guitar orchestra, featuring 18 musicians.

Recorded ahead of ‘Lockout’, our multi-movement work set for release in early 2017, "The Bullet in the Brick" explores various aspects of the Easter Rising such as the bombing of Dublin by the British gunship "The Helga", the murder of activist Francis Sheehy Skeffington and its attempted cover-up, and finally the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. 

Tickets are €10 including booking fee and are available online from the WAV Tickets (Lo-Call 1890 200 078) or Tickets.ie

The 12" is available to pre-order now and will be released on November 25th.
