Irish punk quartet AUDIBLE JOES‘ sophomore album, ‘Irrational Anthems‘ will be arriving on July 14th, but you can hear it early down below. The 11 blistering tracks were engineered by Keith Clancy and the late Lawrence White, and are armed to the teeth with gritty guitars and melodic vocals.
Bassist/vocalist Alex Dinan describes the new album as “A collection of experiences and viewpoints, that contrasts social commentary with introspective lyrics. A hard hitting Punk Rock mémoire, captured in 30 minutes of authentic energy.“
