The Minutes put 2011 through it’s paces… They played over 100 shows, stormed the pits of festivals across Ireland and the UK including Reading and Leeds Festivals, Sea Sessions, Castlepalooza, Indiependence, Oxegen and Electric Picnic. They added sell out shows in both the The Workmans Club and Whelans in Dublin, secret fan gigs, and a rooftop performance to their list. The Minutes supported the one and only Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds for his first ever solo live show, which took place at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin. They supported Flogging Molly on their 23-date European tour – and then went on to complete their first headline tour of Germany.
The Minutes also won Best Group Video for ‘Black Keys’ and Best Live Video for ‘IMTOD’ at 2011 IMTV Awards. Phew! Still with us?
2012 has seen The Minutes moving full steam ahead with no sign of slowing down. They unleashed ‘Heartbreaker’ (click here to read review), the third single to be taken from their debut album ‘Marcata’. They sold out their biggest headline show to date in The Academy in Dublin on Saturday February 11th 2012. They blew up the pits of the prestigious Eurosonic and SXSW festivals – and added a string of festival dates across Europe to their bow. They’ve recently completed their first UK headline tour and gave Germany a good seeing to. They also hit the Download Festival on June 10th 2012. They played Westport Festival on June 23rd before gracing the Main Stage at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival on Sunday June 24th 2012. They performed as special guests to The Stone Roses at Phoenix Park on July 5th 2012… need we say more?
Oh, they’ve also been announced to play Tennents Vital 2012 in Belfast – alongside The Black Keys and Foo Fighters – whilst also playing a string of their own dates across Ireland and plenty more festival dates across Europe.
They now release the fourth single from their debut LP Marcata called Gold. Gold is a prime example of The Minutes doing what they do best – a 3 minute rampant garage rock ‘n’ roll belter with elements of the blues and gospel rearing their heads.
