The Dublin band Gurriers have released their first single since May ahead of upcoming Irish dates.
The Dublin post-punk band Gurriers are set to support Slowdive in November and have a headline show in October in the city, along with EU dates, as per below.
‘Nausea’ is the band’s third single, following on from ‘Sign Of The Times’ and ‘Approachable’, and keeps the band’s discordant post-punk at its heart, matched with guitars that swing like alarms and driving rock drums.
“’Nausea’ is a ruminating thought on the evolution of modern jobs such as content moderation created as a result of social media and the internet. It examines the impact these kind of jobs can have on those in that line of work and the potential harm it causes to their mental health.”Vocalist Dan Hoff.

Since their first gig on Halloween 2021 Gurriers have fast established themselves as one of the most furiously exciting bands coming out of Ireland the last few years.
Cutting their teeth supporting acts like Enola Gay, Surf Curse, Been Stellar, and Goat Girl, their reputation and growing notoriety live saw them booked them on a string of festival bills in 2022 including SWN (UK), Mad Cool (ES), Reeperbahn (DE) plus Into The Great Wide Open, Left Of The Dial, Bruis and London Calling (all NL)
Since releasing their first music in 2023 thing’s have intensified with a stack of UK and Netherlands club shows and a Summer full of festivals including 2000 Trees & Latitude (UK), Electric Picnic (IE), Loose Ends & London Calling (asked back to play the main room) (NL), Haldern Pop & Obstwiesenfestival (DE), Pukkelpop (BE), Off (PL) and Hop Pop Hop (FR).
Gurriers have since grown into a mesmerising tour de force on stage – ahead of their packed shows atThe Great Escape in May NME stated “You know something special is afoot when an act continues to sell out shows off the back of only two singles”, whilst Louder Than War said of their set at Haldern Pop in Germany “One last show of sheer elemental, Argonaut-like force to mention: Gurriers in the Spiegelzelt on Friday. Their set was a mix of abandon and intent, built up by some glorious dark guitar riffs and incredibly fluid bass playing, like a pair of conger eels running the abyssal channel. Alongside this, a rhythm guitar and drums created a wall of sound as impenetrable, and as alluring, as a slab of polished onyx. Add the relentless, fire-and-brimstone preacher attack on the vocals and it was no wonder the Spiegelzelt audience moshed as if it had succumbed to a mass attack of the tarantellas. For those who need more definite reference, there is something of Gilla Band’s intensity but they have an impish, ‘Jesus Built My Hotrod’ anger to them that is irresistible. Be warned.”
