Able Archer

Dublin, County Dublin

Able Archer. A proper rock band, with hardly any ironic beards or cardigans, hailing from Dublin, Ireland.

Hey, here’s a bit about Able Archer

Dublin rock band Able Archer were born in early 2012 out of the ashes of bands that had graced the Irish music scene for almost 10 years. Their critically acclaimed debut 'Bullets' was released in 2013 and drew comparisons to the likes of Soundgarden and Depeche Mode.

Able Archer returned in 2014 with their diverse second EP, 'The Trouble with Strangers', exploring new territories with their explosive single Ghostmaker, and the darkly tinged electronic pop single The Warden, both of which gained significant radio play throughout the UK and Ireland.

With a big sound, and formidable live show, the band have toured the length and breadth of Ireland and the UK, regularly filling venues and drawing rave reviews.

"(Ghostmaker) a great track"
Tom Robinson, BBC6

"... (Ghostmaker) is a belter of a tune"
John Barker, 98fm

"This is a band of importance, a band that has the potential to put Ireland straight back to its front centre days enjoyed when Thin Lizzy ruled the world"
Sunset Radio Review

“Ghostmaker leaves you exhausted and basking in another irrepressible slice of Able Archer excellence"
RingMaster Review, London

"Sounds of an early U2"
Ian Dempsey, Today FM

Ghostmaker; Tune of the day - "High energy rock with well placed softer indie/pop moments"
2 U I Bestow (Blog of the month, Guardian Nov 2013)

"The subtle synth and electronic sounds provide an extra dimension and colour to their music that sets them apart"

"I can't adequately put into words how strong this EP is... These guys need just one big break and they'll take the country by storm, and then with any luck, the world"
