Felonies are a quartet of noisy shed rockers from Wicklow, Ireland. Influenced by the allure of their home counties lack of character, their music is a roar of fury at 700 beats per minute. The bands live shows have a reputation for being manic and turbulent, running on an engine fuelled by the sweat and adrenaline of their audience.
Felonies have just released their debut EP ‘What Comes Next.’ accompanied by a short national tour featuring two sold out dates in Dublin and Galway. Jam packed with socio-political themes of urban decay, hard hitting vocal carnage, powerful drums and distorted guitars and bass, What Comes Next is equal parts Felonies’ rebirth and their baptism of fire, and their way of telling the world that they are angry, just like you.

“They have an intriguing stage presence. These guys have the crowd in the palm of their hands. They perform with magnetic adrenaline that creates frenzy among the audience.
