A Plastic Rose // Reveal new single // Announce UK tour
After a tremendously busy 2011, A Plastic Rose kicked off 2012 by supporting Snow Patrol at London’s O2 Arena and Belfast’s Odyssey Arena to crowds of up to 34,000 at two sold out shows.
Finally, an opportunity to prove their worth on the biggest of all stages after 5 years of relentless touring, recording, and writing to build their loyal fanbase, known to the band as the APRmy, this is yet another step forward for one of Northern Ireland’s most exciting bands.
After paying tribute to them in Q Magazine’s August issue, Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody came to see the band he had so long admired in a tiny, dark venue in Belfast, and was so impressed he extended the invitation to join Snow Patrol on their ‘Fallen Empires’ arena tour.
It’s now full steam ahead for the rest of the year with ‘Boy Racer’the 2nd of 4 singles from their highly anticipated debut album, released in June, through the label Di Di Mau. The album’s planned release date is September 2012.
‘Boy Racer’ follows the recent single ‘Build From the Ground Up’which has successfully got people talking about this exciting new band, garnering them comparisons to the likes of Biffy Clyro, Snow Patrol, Foo Fighters, and Twin Atlantic.
Their mixture of pure emotion and rock and roll dynamics has seen them winning over audiences all over the UK and Ireland, headlining the 2nd stage of the T Vital Festival in Bangor, and high profile gigs such as Arthur’s Day in Dublin supporting BelX1, the Glasgowbury music festival in Draperstown, the Sea Sessions, and tour support for Snow Patrol confirm that A Plastic Rose are THE most exciting new rock band in the UK right now.
