With four double platinum albums, a slew of top ten singles, sold out arenas and a legion of devoted fans behind them, The Coronas have earned their title as one of Ireland’s best loved and hardest working bands.
This past year, The Coronas released their 5th studio album, Trust The Wire, revealing their most refined and confident record to date and with this milestone, Danny O’Reilly (vocals, guitar), Graham Knox (bass), Conor Egan (drums) and Dave McPhillips (guitar) have much to reflect upon.
Looking back on Heroes or Ghosts (2007), their breakthrough record, it was simmered with a zeal and honesty that seduced the Irish public and became the trademark of The Coronas appeal. “I found from a very early stage that the more honest I was and the more of myself I put on the page, the more it connected with people” says Danny.
This honesty and buzz continued to grow and with it came the release of Trust The Wire, The Coronas 5th studio album released on June 2nd 2017 on their brand new indie label So Far So Good Records, a development that the band are equally enthusiastic about. “Ideally it will outlast our band and continue on its own journey for years to come,” says Danny. For the writing process, The Coronas returned home to the shores of Dingle and when it was time to record they looked once again to Elliot James for production at Notting Hill Eastcote Studios in London. The result is a self-assured, gutsy record which lends itself to a broader listenership and confirms that The Coronas were right to trust their instincts. They no longer have room for any doubt.
And with that, the next step is inevitably to take on the world. The band has toured the globe together, remaining a tight knit unit, and released three albums since their debut. “We can’t wait to get on the road again,” says Danny. “We’ll be touring Europe, US, UK and Australia all between September and Christmas so it will be busy but great!”
