The Mary Wallopers release ‘Frost Is All Over’ & announce Irish, European and UK tour dates

Since The Mary Wallopers have appeared on the scene performing traditional songs, the Dundalk trio have exploded in popularity, buoyed by their hugely successful live stream show series, that would lead them onto to sell out Vicar Street in Dublin and tour all over, becoming the cool and very funny young band trad of Ireland.

It’s been a while, December 2019 to be exact, since the band released ‘Cod Liver Oil & the Orange Juice’, and today the trio, augmented by a full live band debuted ‘Frost Is All Over’, which arrives with a video by Sean McMahon. The song also features Radie Peat of Lankum on backing vocals.

“‘Frost is All Over’ is a traditional Irish song about taking everything in your stride and not caring about what everyone says you should care about. We added the verse about landlords as we feel they are a sensitive sort who need reminding of how much we care about them. It was recorded by Chris Barry in his Dublin studio in 2021. It’s an old song made famous by Planxty. The video was shot by Sean McMahon and the set was designed by Mark Sheridan. Sean is from Dundalk like us and has worked on our livestreams before. It was shot in the old AOH Hall in Blackrock, Dundalk, which local music legend Conor Hughes allowed us to use. The video is our way of introducing the new band and how sexy we have become over lockdown. Our home studio / pub was too small to fit everyone in so we had to branch out but still keep it Dundalk.”

And that’s not all, it’s the band’s first single from their debut album and there are bunch of dates in Ireland, Europe and UK announced too, that includes gigs at the National Stadium in Dublin on November 17th and a New Year’s Eve show at Dolan’s in Limerick.
