"I look around and their audience are transfixed. Tonight, the Buttery was plucked from the armpit of stale indie bedwet and propelled skywards toward the lofty creative peaks of a band who I am convinced are poised to record something truly special". Trinity News (live review)

Biography

Alphastates are currently working on their second album, the follow up to 2004's ""Made From Sand"", which was described as “the freshest, most vital Irish release in an age�. Alphastates have played at Witnness twice and to their biggest audience yet when 6000 people packed their tent at the Oxegen festival in 2004. They have shared stages with Throwing Muses, Sinead O’ Connor, Cat Power, The Frames, The Beta Band and Lali Puna. Their music is currently in demand for both TV and Film productions, including Irish drama series “The Big Bow Wow�, and in Irelands national television station RTE's sport advertising campaign. Courtesy of their phenomenal live performances they have built up a strong fanbase around the country. They were recently selected by RTE to perform on the programme “Other Voices – Songs From a Room�, alongside Steve Earle, the Mark Lanegan Band (Queens of the Stone age) and many others. They were also selected from thousands of other bands to have a video made by the prestigious New York Film School of their pulsating single Addicted. Alphastates also won Band of the Year and Best Electronic Song in American Indie website iacmusic.com's annual awards for 2006. They spent most of the year at the top of IAC's charts, three of their songs reaching the top spot and staying there for several months.
