March 30th, Back home, what a tour!

Back in Ireland following our 26 date tour of the East coast of the U.S. with The Interrupters and Dropkick Murphys!!! Well what a tour that was, we played some of the best shows of our career (26 shows in 30 days) and to the greatest of people, thank you for turning out early to catch Blood or Whiskey!

None of this could have happened if it wasn't for the Dropkick Murphys and we want to thank each and every one of the DKM band and the crew for giving us this opportunity again, you are truly top people and it is an absolute pleasure to work with each and every one of you, THANK YOU!

On this tour we had the pleasure of sharing the stage with our amazing new friends The Interrupters, what a band, they nailed it every night without fail and were an absolute pleasure to be around, so thank you all so much for everything along the way!

It was brilliant to see all the great charity workers on a daily basis, who became friends, to see the great efforts that they make for both The Claddagh Fund and the Love Hope Strength Foundation. You are all truly amazing people doing great and very important work!

We met some new and some old friends and family along the way. Lenny Lashley as always a gent and fair play for lending us the speaker and thanks to Brendan Jelloe for sorting that out for us and of course all the great pictures and videos during the tour, It was great to catch up with Phil Cadaver (The BlameNYC), Frank Visone , Joe Trojan and Ciaran McCabe in New York City when we played our own show with support from our good friends The Blame, at Webster Hall. On this night we were joined on stage by our very good friend Cait O'Riordan who brought the house down with a fantastic version of "I'm a Man You Don't Meet Every Day", it will never get dull playing this tune with Cait. We were then joined on stage by our host from Staten Island Phil Cadaver and Paul, for our version of their band The Blames' classic track "Streets of New York", I hope we did it justice lads.

Finally we want to thank all involved with Blood or Whiskey, touring can really take its toll when you are doing 26 shows back to back, great job lads enjoy the rest; Dugs, Chris, Kev, Baz, Sully & Robbie also to Vinny on merch and Frank in the office, super effort all round lads.

As always it is an honor, a privilege and a pleasure, to get the opportunity to bring our music to the U.S. and we hope to see you all out there again real soon. To our Irish and maybe some of our European friends and fans see you in Toners, Dublin on April 23rd.
