"Stone Throwing Youths chosen to support Chickenfoot"

"A gritty sound, unbelievably created by two people - an absolute legind" - Red fm

"Myspace review from "tickets here, tickets there" music blog"

Judging by the opening riff from the first band we’ve checked out, we’re not going to be disappointed.

Haling from…all over Ireland by the looks of things, Stone Throwing Youths seems to be the brain child of two men, Mr. Brian Casey (Vocals, Guitars, Piano
– names awful familiar) and Andrew O’Sullivan (drums).

As usual, Tickets There hasn’t seen them live or heard their album / EP

Wow. Opening song Relive Reborn is flat out deadly. It’s got a savage riff. It’s got savage vocals. It’s a hard, bruising monster of a track that smacks
you’re head around a little. If any early nineties grunge act had released this, it’d be a classic. Brian’s vocals sound a tad weak at the start but as
the song moves on it’s very obvious that his voice is absolutely fantastic. It’s heavy, harsh, powerful and in need of a serious producers attention to
release it’s full potential. Tickets There loves this song! Tickets There really loves this song.

Since Long Ago starts a little slower leaving Tickets There to drop it’s excitement and come to terms with the fact that yet again we’d found another band
who tease with one belter and then force you to sit through their emotions. That is until about a minute in when the guitars kick off, the chorus turns
out to be ballad rock without the cheese and it only gets better. The guitars appear more and more as the song grows darker. A major riff appears, the
vocals get gritty and the day is saved. Another one Tickets There loves.

The future’s bright, the futures Too Much Information. Riff, Riff, Riff!! Oh, give this man a Les Paul and make this song explode like it wants to. Deadly,
power drive of an opening riff. Dark verse, Marilyn Manson meets Motley Crue style chorus! Retracted speed, bruising power and the daunting off beat drums
let the mighty chorus smash through the dizzying void. Vocals are incredible, Jesus, imagine seeing this sh*t live!! Incredible stuff. Aw, must be played
many more times at full volume. Where the hell have these guys been!

Yes, Piankiller style drum opening, Stone Roses style guitar and then what? The Pogues covering The Smashing Pumpkins before turning back into the Stone
Roses covering Snow Patrol or something? It’s like three deadly bands covering the catchiest band on the planets latest single at the one time in different
styles. It’s got the upbeatness of a person suddenly realizing they’re at Woodstock watching Jimi Hendrix. Downside Down, deadly!

That’s it!! Hell, if Tickets There ever get’s any money we’re paying for these guys album, their tour, their merchandise, their houses, cars, commercial
sports teams, groupies, reunion press statements, pr and management companies, boats private islands, acting career startup cash, travel and accommodation
during guest tv spots, drugs, smokes, booze and court cases. Twelve thumbs up, Nine out of Ten (Their album will get Ten, saving it ya see). Everything
a respectable rock fan could want from a group…except a couple of solos.

Stone Throwing Youths selftitled debut is a 5 song EP released in February 2009 . Through online sales, show purchases and a few independent stores the EP has now sold over 1000 coppies. There are no plans for a second pressing as STY are perfectly happy just to play the songs live!

Stone Throwing Youths debut album "Disconnect The Dots" will be released late in Spring 2010. Self produced and self mixed, the album comes closer to capturing the band's sound live with a very deliberate dynamic throughout.

The album does not feature drummer Andrew O'Sullivan and is the final set of recordings featuring Brian Casey on all instrumentation.

Over 2010 and into 2011 STY plan on recording a number of EP's as well as producing instrumental mateerial for use on TV and Film, "because its fun!!".



Beginning as a self produced band centring around 20 year old multi instrumentalist Brian Casey, who has produced, written and performed all of the band’s studio material to date, STY has now grown to absorb the percussive prowess of drummer Andrew O’Sullivan.

Since, the band has generated much word of mouth endorsement for their unique live shows; an edgy and spontaneous dynamic, an ever-changing live performance – pounding rhythms, a deeply inventive guitar arsenal and an audience left in disbelief- that the sound is created on stage, in real-time by just two musicians.

Since the first live shows in February of 2009, STY have flaunted their wares in almost all of Ireland’s popular music venues, taking them from small intimate sets to a support slot in the “live at the Marquee” series of gigs in Cork where the band supported rock super group Chickenfoot – winning the respect of an audience of thousands.

Despite 2009 having seen the band play over 40 shows around the country, being featured on a 272 records compilation in the U.S, releasing an EP and receiving generous airplay at home and abroad, 2010 will be the year that STY really begin to hit their stride with plans to release their debut album “Disconnect The Dots” – venturing abroad, touring at home, taking names and writing more energetic, furiously passionate tunes.
