Cider Wasps are a four piece alternative rock band from Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland. The band consists of brothers Danny and Tommy Dunford, Stephen Keating and Colin Drummey. The band formed in early 2013 and have been gigging in various venues across the country since but as of late have started hitting the Irish festival scene with an appearance at Indiependence 2016.
Their music consists of strong harmonising vocals with all 4 members singing, melodic and distorted guitar riffs and a mix of heavy drum beats and basslines. They draw influence from the likes of Kings of Leon and Biffy Clyro when it comes to writing their own music.
The band launched their debut EP entitled ‘HERE’ in the autumn of 2015 which featured their single Lúnasa. Many radio stations and DJ’s picked up on the EP immediately and it began to hit the Irish airwaves on stations such as WLR-FM, Beat 102-103, CRY104FM, and 98FM to name a few.
Cider Wasps are set to release their new EP titled ETHEREAL on March 14th along with an Irish tour to promote the EP. The songs Hummingbird and 80BPS will be featured as singles.
