The latest 'post-hardcore' (read: emo) band from the valleys of South Wales - i.e. The Blackout - will play their first Irish gig later this year.

The sextet have previously toured with the likes of Lostprophets, and released their debut album 'We Are the Dynamite' last year.

They'll play The Academy on October 7th, with support from From First To Last.

Tickets are €24 and on sale now.
