The Dublin noise-punk band release their fourth single ahead of upcoming international tour dates.

Dublin post-punk band Gurriers have released a new single called ‘Des Goblin’, a song they’ve been playing live ahead of upcoming dates in at SXSW in March, along with Bristol’s Simple Things Festival and more this year.

The band have also announced a lineup change – saying Charlie McCarthy will be joining the band on bass replacing Emmet White who departs the band on amicable terms. 

Charlie has previously played live with Gurriers, standing in for Emmet last year for festival shows at Haldern Pop in Germany and Off in Poland.

A Dublin date is coming soon, but they also support Mother Mother for two nights in the Olympia on February 22nd and 23rd.

Of ‘Des Goblin’ the band’s Dan Hoff says:

“’Des Goblin’ is about apathy and self-obsession in the face of impending destruction, particularly to do with the effects of climate change and war and people being too obsessed with themselves and their online personas to be able to see the wood for the trees. Musically we pulled from further afield than previously, and really leaned in on our dance influences as well as a more fluent spoken word style vocal.”

  Watch the video directed by the band’s Ben O’Neill:
