Platinum-selling four piece, The Coronas, have established themselves as the current biggest-selling independent group in Ireland, and following their sold out show at London’s Borderline in April they have proven they are ready to take on the UK with the release of their single ‘Addicted To Progress’ on May 21st. Taken from their forthcoming album ‘Closer To You’, ‘Addicted To Progress’ is a snappy, melodic slice of indie / pop, featuring a killer guitar riff, electro synths and vocals.
The band is renowned for their high-energy live shows, which have made them one of the country's most popular attractions, having shared the stage with artists such as Paul McCartney, Pink and The Script. With an ever-growing fan base, the band have sold out Dublin’s Olympia six nights running, and held their own at prestigious European festivals such as Benicassim and Hard Rock Calling.
With a string of awards under their belt, The Coronas’ platinum-selling 2009 album ‘Tony Was An Ex-Con’ shot straight to #1 in the Irish Indie and iTunes charts and won the guys a prestigious Meteor Award for album of the year, beating the likes of U2, The Script and Snow Patrol. ‘Closer To You’ is the band’s follow-up album, produced by studio legend Tony Hoffer (Air, Beck, The Kooks, Belle and Sebastian) and showcases the boys at their best. Full of catchy, melodic guitar based tracks, this could give the band the across the board recognition. For more info and tour dates, check: www.thecoronas.net
