Ivan St. John, the Dublin singer songwriter formerly known as Pinky, is set to launch his debut album 'Up To Snuff' at the Workman's Club on Saturday December 4th.

Having just had a quick listen through the new album this morning, I'm adequately impressed with its upbeat, ramshackle guitar pop. The album will be officially released on November 12th, with lead single 'There You Stand' preceding it on November 5th.

Performing as a three-piece, Ivan St John will be supporting the long-awaited record with shows around Ireland in November, culminating in the Dublin album lunch at The Workman's Club with support from The Danger Is.

Ivan St John's full live schedule looks like this:

Friday November 12 - HMV, Limerick, 4pm
Saturday November 13 - Third Wave Music, Sligo, 4pm
Saturday November 13 - McGarrigles, Sligo, 8pm
