THE FRANK AND WALTERS
Release new Single ‘The Clock’
On Oct 22nd 2010 (FIFA RECORDS)
The Frank and Walters are one of the most recognizable alternative rock bands hailing from Cork, Ireland in the past 2 decades. The band: Paul Linehan (Lead vocal & bass), Ashley Keating- (Drums) & Kevin Pedreschi (lead Guitar) took the band name in honor of two eccentric Cork characters. Two decades on from the release of their very first record, and the Franks continue to defy expectations.
With Indie hits such as ‘Fashion Crisis Hits New York’ & ‘After All’ (which reached the top twenty in the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #11. The group also appeared on Top of the Pops in support of the single; it went as high as #5 in the Irish charts).
Their music today is as relevant as any of the new pretenders on the block and only a handful of bands anywhere in the world can lay claim to such longevity of popularity.
Following other seasonal releases this year in ‘The Parson’ and ‘Let It Out’, which received playlisting across regional and National radio, the band are set to release ‘The Clock’ as their Autumn single on Oct 22nd.
A night of Indie classics: being apart of the iconic Irish Indie bands of the 90’s, The Frank & Walters are joining forces with POWER OF DREAMS & THE SULTANS OF PING for The Reverberation Tour; the first time in 15 years all three bands will play together on the same stage. In this triple headed show the bands will alternate nightly and promise to play only the classics such as Power of Dreams ’ “100 Ways To Kill A Love”, The Sultans of Ping’s “Where’s Me jumper” and the Frank and Walters’ “After All”.
