The Barricades


An indie / punk sound that is larger than life, with a live show that will have you shouting and begging for more. The music has managed to have people from every walk of life and every genre of music come down from the rafters and get on there dancin shoes.


The Barricades were formed back in Febuary 07. When four lads with a mutual hate for reality and soberness decided it was time to get heard. Mark (Guitar) Aido (bass) and Git (Drums) were all childhood friends and had been playing music together for a few years when Brian (vocals) was brought in and given the job of "the voice"! The majority of the barricades sound is extremely radio friendly and good humoured, Its said to make you feel happy thoughts, whilst nodding your head and humming the melody with a smile on your face. The band have a wide range of influnences from Frankie Valli and the Four seasons to the sex pistols and the beatles. Amazingly enough alot of these influences can be heard in the music! The Barricades sing about drink, work, girls, love, society and most importantly Life in general. With catchy hooks and rocking beats its no doubt that the barricades are a wonderful combination. The barricades recently have been recording down in galway with Andy Reynolds of Ceol Nua ( where they recorded their first 5 track Ep. Since putting the EP online in april the barricades have gotten an amazing amount of attention from indie loving teens all around the webbernet. The Barricades played their first Headline show on the 28th of April to a SOLD OUT eammon dorans crowd in Dublin. This was due to the popularity of the recently recorded demo that had been available for listening online. Now, the barricades have secured a management contract and are Due back in studio on the 1st of July to start recording there debut album. The Barricades have been said to sound like a mixture Between - The fratellis, the strokes, The Clash and the beatles.
