Celtic Rockers The Killdares to debut New CD 'Steal The Sky' for Hometown Dallas Crowd
Prior to their official CD release September 26th where they'll also be celebrating their 15th anniversary of their extraordinary annual run at the State Fair of Texas, performing five shows a day for 24 days (120 in all!), The Killdares have decided to give their dedicated hometown fan base a taste of what's to come with their seventh release...and newest studio release since 2008. The band will be performing at The Granada Theater September 5th and will be giving away free copies of the new CD Steal The Sky to all those who purchase their tickets in advance, prior to Sept. 5th.
Having enjoyed some key personnel changes since the release of their live album Up Against The Lights (2011) and their previous studio set Secrets of the Day (2008), The Killdares lock in immediately on their upcoming release Steal The Sky produced by veteran Dallas-based touring musician, composer and producer Jordan Critz (Green River Ordinance, Tim Halperin), showcasing the natural, growing chemistry between drummer and lead singer Tim Smith, six time National Fiddle Champion Roberta Rast, competition bagpiper Matt Willis and newer membersGary Thorne (bass) and Mike Urness (electric guitar).
"Whether we play in front of 10,000 people or a few hundred," Smith says, "we always strive to deliver the same high energy show and are there to make deep, lasting connections with old and new fans. One of the great things about being a quintessential indie band is that there is no template for when and how we perform!"
The historic Granada Theater has played a big part in a previous Killdares release. In 2011, The Killdares capped an extraordinary decade and a half of recording and touring with the release of Up Against The Lights, a compelling 2 CD/DVD concert collection chronicling the explosive power and irresistible charms of their live performances with a set captured at the legendary venue.
