The Coronas Announce UK Dates And Share Video For New Single ‘Haunted’ From Forthcoming Album

The Coronas, the multi-platinum, arena-conquering Dublin band, have announced UK dates in support of forthcoming album ‘True Love Waits’ (released 29th May).

Sunday 10th May 2020 – The Deaf Institute

Monday 11th May 2020 – St Luke’s, Glasgow

Tickets are on sale now via The Coronas official website.

It’s been eight months since the Coronas last released new music (Find The Water), and to say that the band have been busy since then is a bit of an understatement. They’ve headlined their own travelling festival, performed a run of special shows in their hometown, and released a live album, all while recording ‘True Love Waits’ in London’s prestigious Eastcote Studios. George Murphy, acclaimed engineer and producer (Ellie Goulding, The Specials, Mumford & Sons), has undertaken the main production duties on the album along with Rob Kirwan (Hozier, PJ Harvey) and Cormac Butler (Academic, All Tvvins).

With a renewed vigour as a 3-piece (lead guitarist Dave McPhillips left the band amicably late last year), The Coronas – Danny O’Reilly, Graham Knox and Conor Egan – are set to continue their busy schedule right up to the album release in May.

“Yeah, it’s been a crazy few months!’ laughs singer Danny. ‘But it’s a new chapter for us and we’re so proud of this album, we can’t wait to release it.”

‘Haunted’ is the first taste of this new music for the band’s legions of fans and they will be touring extensively both in Ireland and internationally in support of the upcoming album.

Since the release of the 2017 album ‘Trust the Wire’ – the first on their own label and a chart topper in Ireland – the band have enjoyed a renewed confidence and enthusiasm. Extensive tours saw them spend much of 2018 in America, including sets at Lollapalooza, Voodoo and ACL, as well as sell-out dates in Australia, Asia, Europe and some memorable shows in their homeland including a 15,000 capacity crowd gig in Dublin.
