Known for their unique blend of traditional Irish music and with hard-edged punk rock, the 7-headed monster’s live show attracted the attention of SideOneDummy Records. Their debut album on the label “Swagger” blew critics away, and has been referred to as ’music that’s perfect for any barroom brawl’. Their next album, “Drunken Lullabies” achieved Gold status, the title track featuring on the video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4.
