Read below for a statement from the band:
"It is with great regret that we have collectively decided to disband The Eskies and to cancel all shows going forwards. On-going differences between band members has led to a breakdown of trust which has resulted in great upset, depression and in some cases professional counselling. In the seven years of playing together we have almost never cancelled shows, but for the sake of our collective mental well-being we feel we have no choice. We apologies profoundly for the difficulties we know this will cause."
Hailing from Dublin, The Eskies bring their unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide. The release of their second album “And Don’t Spare The Horses” on Absolute Record has cemented their position of one of the best emerging artists from Ireland.
Last year saw them play over 40 festivals in 5 countries, tour Ireland, UK, Netherlands and Switzerland as well as being invited to the influential new music festival Eurosonic Festival. Other notable festival performances included Glastonbury Main Stage Avalon, Main Stage Cambridge and Bestival. They have just finished a tour of Australia which took them to Port Fairy Festival who invited them half way around the planet before they had released a single song!
