THE CORONAS

Irish Indie-rock band The Coronas embarked on a 12 city North American Tour in November and we were lucky enough to be the first stop on the sold-out tour. The band hails from Dublin but have spent the last few years living in London. This band plays big stadium shows throughout Europe and Australia but the North American market is just finding out how great this band is. Conor Egan on lead guitar and vocals, Graham Knox on bass, Dave McPhillips on drums, Danny O'Reilly, the front-man, principal song writer, guitarist and keyboard player knocked out the Fallout Shelter crowd with a brilliant set, much of it from their latest album 'Trust the Wire.'

'We Couldn't Fake It' was one of the highlights of the evening during the Coronas visit to The Extended Play Sessions Fallout Shelter in November. The first stop on a sold out North American tour and we were fortunate enough to have them come in and film a session. These songs are deep, driven, melodic and brilliantly performed. The Coronas are already a houshold name in many parts of Europe and Australia and they are about to conquer North America... great band!
