We have teamed up with MCD to give a lucky winner the chance to win a pair of tickets to see CRY MONSTER CRY at Whelan's, Dublin on Thursday 17th October.

Irish brothers Richie and Jamie Martin, better known as alternative folk duo Cry Monster Cry have announced details for their sophomore album Tides.

Due for release on 11 October, the 10-track record sees the band returning with a refined, mature sound and a contemporary approach to song writing as a follow up to their critically-acclaimed debut album Rhythm of Dawn (2015). Fresh from sold out tours across Ireland, Germany and Switzerland, the band will also be playing a number of live dates in Europe.

Recorded in the wilds of Donegal by Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, SOAK) and mixed in Cork by Christian Best (Mick Flannery, Marc O’Reilly), Tides pushes the brothers’ lush blood harmonies and evocative lyrics to the forefront, backing them up with swelling strings, spectral analog synths and warm guitars.

The lead single and title track Tides will be released digitally on 27 September (Listen Here) and the record will be released digitally as well as on CD and Vinyl on 11 October. The band will back it up with a European tour as seen below, with two album launches in Dublin (Oct 17 in Whelan’s) and Cork (Oct 18 in Winthrop Avenue) as well as select dates with Mary Black.
