THE KEDS are back to launch a fresh assault on the Irish Music Industry, which will see them blast back onto our radios, into our venues and back into our hearts with their critically acclaimed new album ‘Cloaks and Daggers’.

Released in September 2007 ‘Cloaks and Daggers’ has already received widespread critical acclaimed from some of Ireland’s top music critics including Jackie Hayden (Hot Press) who wrote “Here they’ve (THE KEDS) delivered what their attitude has promised for so long, an album big on attitude and even bigger on choruses, a store full of jagged riffage and a lyrical maturity way beyond their years” in a scorching hot 8/10 review.

Proud to put his name and reputation behind the album Tony Clayton-Lea (Irish Independent’s The Ticket) hailed the band as “a classy act” and added, “this mighty fine album blends their influences into a wholly satisfying noise. Big Choruses, nifty guitar riffs, bang, bash, pow!”

The first single lifted from the album was ’27 Years’, which rocketed in at No.3 in the Irish Download Charts and set THE KEDS out as an unrelenting force to be reckoned with.

Having received the stamp of approval from personal friends and tour buddies like RANCID, LARS FREDERIKSEN & THE BASTARDS and THE BUZZCOCKS the Irish punk rockers have also shared stages with other worthy compadres like LESS THAN JAKE, TIGER ARMY, BOWLING FOR SOUP, THE UNDERTONES among others.

The band has played literally hundreds of live shows and festivals, including the Witnness Festival (now Oxygen) in 2001, both here, in the US and in Germany including Berlin’s famous ‘Wild At Heart’ in July 07.

THE KEDS have also made countless Irish radio and TV appearances and have an acclaimed single ‘The Jury’ (2001) under their arm, which was produced by top producer and punk legend Pete Holidai of ‘Radiators from Space’ fame.

If great songs are the lifeblood of any band then THE KEDS are on the verge of a blood bath.
