A Plastic Rose have just announced their second musical offering of 2012; ‘BOY RACER’ (Release date June 15th in Ireland/ 18th in Uk). Taken from their eagerly awaited debut album titled: ‘Camera.Shutter.Life’. The album was produced at Manor Park by Neal Calderwood (General Fiasco, Fighting With Wire) and will be released in the summer of 2012 on DidiMau Records. (Rel date TBA)
Fresh from Supporting Snow Patrol on a handful of their arena tour dates, the spectacular and ever ‘EPIC’ (Irish Times) band ‘A Plastic Rose’ are the name on a lot of people’s lips at the moment.
Widely seen as one of the most exciting prospects to emerge from the increasingly fertile Northern Irish music scene, the band have been instrumental in uniting artists and gig-goers alike, knowing that there is great strength in a united front.
On ‘BOY RACER’; the band have yet again captured the sound that makes them such a favourite amongst audiences. Defined by their individuality and with talent aplenty, APR are proving that behind the band’s ability to bring people together, there is some serious edgy song writing skills at work.
‘Camera.Shutter.Life’ calls to mind the aggression of Rival Schools, the dark mystery of R.E.M., the emotional intensity of Biffy Clyro, as well as the fist-pumping choruses of the Foo Fighters.
