The Frank & Walters

Cork Opera House
Friday, April 15 2016

Tickets on sale: Friday, December 4

http://www.corkoperahouse.ie

The Frank & Walters are synonymous with great albums, radio hits and a live show that has taken them all over the world during the course of a celebrated and critically acclaimed career. The Irish indie legends are set to release a new album titled Songs for the Walking Wounded in March 2016 and launch the record’s tour with a hometown show at Cork Opera House on Friday, April 15.

It will be the Frank & Walters first show at Cork Opera House since their sold out 25th anniversary gig in October 2014. Since appearing on Top of the Pops during the 90s, while also gracing the covers of NME and Melody Maker, the Frank & Walters have consistently delivered classic indie pop in the form of hits such as ‘After All’, ‘Fashion Crisis Hits New York’ and ‘Indie Love Song’.

The band’s last album, Greenwich Mean Time, saw the Frank & Walters reach a whole new audience, both at home and abroad, with gigs in the US and as far as Japan for the first time. The Franks have also become regular festival favourites at some of the Europe and Ireland’s biggest summer events, recently playing Electric Picnic 2015 and the Shiine On Weekender in the UK.

Songs for the Walking Wounded will be the band’s seventh studio album, due for release on FIFA Records next Spring.

Tickets: €25.00 / €22.50

Hey

Unfortunately, gonna miss this one :( :(

Wishing the Franks all the best with the new album and the launch night.

The usual "up the front" lads will give an extra loud "We are..." for me :D It's gonna be real strange not being there.

Have a great night everyone and Keep the Faith!!!
