Cry Before Dawn for Monroe’s Cry Before Dawn for Monroe’s

Wexford band Cry Before Dawn are heading to Galway City this Saturday, June 29, to play a show in Monroe’s. It’s the first time in almost a decade that the group have played Galway, according to their bass player Vincent Doyle.

Formed in 1982, the four-piece fused guitar-driven rock with traditional Irish pipes and whistles to create a uniquely powerful and dynamic sound

The band released double-platinum selling albums and won a range of awards, including Best Newcomer in 1987 and Best Irish Group in 1989, reflecting the huge popularity they enjoyed across Ireland,

Their reputation for passionate and driven performances grew through their extensive live work in Ireland, the UK and the USA, and they sold out the National Stadium on two occasions.

Having parted company for many years, Cry Before Dawn reformed in 2011 to coincide  with the release of a Best of CD. That was followed by a single, Is This What You Waited For?, and a live album, Live at the Opera House, as well as tours of Ireland and the UK

The original band then lined up for shows in 2017 and since then a re-energised cry Before Dawn have played a number of high-profile and well-received shows, as well as a tour of Ireland last year. They played major international festivals and sell-out shows around the country which were well received by fans and critics.

The band are currently preparing to release a new album and will be performing some of the new songs at this Saturday’s Galway gig. Doors are at 7.30pm and tickets are €27.50 (€25 plus booking fee) at or on the door.
