Warner Music Ireland and Rascals Beer team up with ‘let’s rock’ IPA!
Let’s Rock! No, really, Let’s Rock. It’s the title of the new album from Ohio scuzzy bluesy guitar ledgebags The Black Keys, one of the best rock bands of the past twenty years. Their 2011 album El Camino was a global hit, not least because of the insanely successful and still brilliant Lonely Boy, but The Black Keys earned their stripes a long time ago with albums such as Brothers from 2010 and Rubber Factory released back in 2004.
They’ve returned with a new album that veers back towards the path to rock righteousness after a brief detour with the slightly more introspective 2014 album Turn Blue. And guess what? We got together with Warner Music and The Black Keys to bring out a special limited can to celebrate the new album! Damn right we did. Let’s Rock is the new album and it’s out now.
We made a fresh batch of Happy Days pale ale and canned up an
extremely limited edition run. There’s even a QR code to scan which
allows you to listen to the album. It’s a rock and roll beer for a rock
and roll album.
You won’t be able to buy these cans in the shops, but we are going to give them away on our social channels, PLUS! We’ll give some away as prizes at this Sunday’s Quizzy Rascals table quiz here in Inchicore (30 June) Get your tickets for Quizzy Rascals here. If you love craft beer and pizza, as well as great tunes, then you need to spend a lot more time here at Rascals HQ taproom and pizza restaurant, Inchicore.
debut solo single ‘Wall of Glass’ put him back where he belongs, but Liam
Gallagher’s ‘Shockwave’ is already powering towards a much bigger launch.
Competing for a Top 20 position on the Official Singles Chart, ‘Shockwave’
is performing stronger across both downloads and streaming and will comfortably
top the Official Vinyl Singles Chart.
Liam builds on that flying start by sharing the track’s official video.
Directed by the award-winning François
Rousselet, the video sets Liam’s swaggering charisma to
some striking, cinematic-scale photography. It takes him on a voyage through America’s
Deep South, from desolate wastelands to train tracks and large-scale
video comes as Liam confirms that his eagerly anticipated second album ‘Why
Me? Why Not’ will be released on September 20th on WarnerRecords. The album is now available to pre-order from and will be
available on a variety of CD, vinyl, download and streaming formats. There will
also be a special D2C package which compiles a deluxe CD, a sun yellow vinyl
album and a one-sided etched 12” which features three deluxe bonus tracks along
with a demo recording that’s exclusive to this format – all packaged in a
Me? Why Not.’ was
written by Liam with producers AndrewWyatt and GregKurstin and recorded in LosAngeles and at RAKStudios
in London. Wyatt and Kurstin previously contributed
writing and production to Liam’s all-conquering debut solo album ‘As
You Were’, and Liam was keen to get even deeper with them this time.
As a result, ‘Why Me? Why Not.’ is a clear upgrade on ‘As You Were’ but
not a radical departure.
wrote some songs on my own for the last album, but this time it’s all
co-writes. Reason being is I want it to be even better than ‘As You Were’. I
know my strengths and I know my limitations. I’m an ok songwriter, but I’m a
great singer and frontman. I want the second album to be a step-up because the
hardest thing to do is to make something the same, only better. So that’s what
‘Shockwave’ has seen Liam Gallagher
make a typically full-throttle return. Super intimate sold-out show at Hackney
Round Chapel? Biblical. Premiere and release of the long-awaited ‘As It Was’
documentary? Completed. Featured on the cover of Q, who described him as
“rock’s finest frontman”? Naturally.
debut solo album ‘As
You Were’ was a critical and commercial smash. It debuted at #1
in IRELAND and in the UK, out-selling the rest of the Top 10 in the
process and was soon certified Platinum. Liam was back where he
belonged, selling out huge outdoor shows and earning major awards from Q,
NME and GQ.
Liam’s next double-bill of huge UK
shows comes at the end of the month. He’ll play a sold-out Eden Sessions
show on the 26th before hitting Glastonbury’sPyramidStage on the 29th.
Liam will play
Irish Independent Park, Cork on Sunday June 23rd, 2019.
