Irish punks Gurriers release their ‘Sign Of The Times’


As one of the highlights of The Great Escape in Brighton last week, Dublin band Gurriers are following up their success with the ‘Sign Of The Times’, after the live favourite ‘Approachable’ as their debut.

The Irish punk band’s second single shares a title only with Prince and Harry Styles if nothing else, the tune is a wiry punk track with rolling guitar and bass riffs and marquee vocals from Dan Hoff.

“’Sign of the Times’ examines the human obsession with violence, and how we have all become desensitised to the horrors we witness online through the growth of social media.”

21/07 – Latitude Festival, Henham Park, UK

03/09 – Electric Picnic, Stradbally, IE

About Gurriers

Gurriers formed during the pandemic and emerged the other side with a debut gig on Halloween 2021 and have since become an important part of an increasingly talked-about Irish scene. For the last two years they’ve honed their incendiary performances from local venues through European festival stages rapidly making a name for themselves in the process. Reverberating guitars, epic melodies and vocals bursting with snotty self-confidence bind Gurriers’ songwriting into a mesmerising live tour de force.

With experience supporting acts like Enola Gay, Surf Curse, Been Stellar, and Goat Girl, their growing notoriety as a band not to miss has seen them tour the UK recently with Chappaqua Wrestling and Mary Wallopers, playing festivals such as The Great Escape (UK), SWN (UK), Mad Cool (ES), Reeperbahn (DE), and London Calling (NL), and the band have shows lined up at 2000 Trees, Latitude Festival, Electric Picnic and Pitchfork Music Festival London with more TBA.

Evolving in this time from a no-name musical project to an uncompromising punk rock band, Gurriers are leading the way for the movement of exciting new bands out of Ireland.
