“We’ve always been incredibly lucky to work with some of the best Actors and Directors in Ireland when it comes to our Music Videos and this time is no exception. James and the lead Actor Ryan have done some amazing work recently and when we read James’s treatment for Shed A Tear he was clearly the guy to go with. He’s produced a world class video for us and we look forward to working with him and his crew again in the future” – Jason Boland, Kodaline.
After playing to a sold out crowd of 21,000 fans at Dublin’s Malahide Castle in June, the band play four free UK shows this week as a thank you to fans who pre-ordered ‘Politics Of Living’. They promise to be an unmissable chance for fans to hear tracks from the new album in an intimate setting.
‘Politics of Living’ sees Kodaline team up with some of the hottest production and writing talent imaginable including hitmaker supreme Steve Mac (‘Shape Of You’ by Ed Sheeran), pop guru Johnny Coffer (Rag’N’Bone Man, Beyonce), Jonas Jeberg (Dizzee Rascal, Kylie Minogue), Stephen Harris (Miles Kane, Kaiser Chiefs) as well as long-time collaborator Johnny McDaid (‘What About Us’ by Pink).
Their new sound germinated during sessions with Kygo two years ago on the global hit ‘Raging’, and was quickly followed by last summer’s radio mainstay ‘Brother’. Earlier this year saw the release of one of their best ever singles, ‘Follow Your Fire’, a slice of powerhouse pop, which showed the band are ready to cement their place amongst the UK’s best in 2018.
The live dates for the free shows are:
Tues 10th LONDON, Hoxton Bar & Kitchen
Weds 11th BIRMINGHAM, Academy 3
Thurs 12th MANCHESTER, Deaf Institute
Fri 13th EDINBURGH, Caves
With a summer of festival performances including Isle Of Wight and TRNSMT, Kodaline head out on a slew of European and US dates this autumn with plans to play closer to home in early 2019.
