Tickets priced €41.50 on sale on now!
Following their recent sold out Irish tour, The Overtones have confirmed Irish dates for November 2012. Britain’s hottest male vocal group featuring Corkonian Timmy Matley will play in Dublin November 2012.
The Overtones are: Mark Franks, Mike Crawshaw, Darren Everest, Timmy Matley and Lachie Chapman.
The Overtones released the Platinum Edition of their Top 5 album ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’ last October. In addition to the twelve songs from the original album, the Platinum Edition has three brand new songs including their new single ‘Second Last Chance’.
‘Second Last Chance’ is a vintage-pop song that, like the band themselves, mixes the tradition of American vocal groups with the best of classic, present-day British pop. With its swagger and bop, this new single fits in harmoniously with classics from their Top 5 album such as ‘Sh-Boom’, ‘Why Do Fools Fall In Love’ and their recent original single, ‘Gambling Man’.
Similarly, new original recordings ‘Say What I Feel’ and ‘Whoops’ acknowledge the impact and influence of great vocal groups, such as The Temptations, The Drifters and The Five Satins, whilst reflecting The Overtones’ pop sensibility and broad contemporary appeal. “Vocal harmony groups have had the great fortune of being able to traverse musical styles from doo-wop through soul, Motown and R&B. We’ve really enjoyed extending The Overtones’ sound to new tracks on the Platinum Edition album.”
Having originally formed in 2006, it has taken them some time to get here, so of course now that they have arrived, The Overtones are raging with ambition. The tours are getting bigger, and they want them to be bigger still. On completing a sold-out tour in March The Overtones announced a national theatre tour in October, including such prestigious venues as the London Palladium which also sold out.
