Galway, County Galway
D-Day are a four piece alternative rock band from Galway. Drawing influence from Thin Lizzy, The Rolling Stones and The Who, brothers Darragh and Keith Whyte invited childhood friends Chris Breslin and Cathal Sweeney to complete the lineup.
Following on from a hectic summer tour in 2016 featuring support slots for Hudson Taylor, Tokyo Taboo (UK), The Riptide Movement, The Strypes and Delorentos, 'D-Day' launched their debut single ‘Misunderstood’ on October 7th, 2016 to critical acclaim.
'Misunderstood' was mixed by Grammy and Juno-nominated sound engineer Mike Fraser (Franz Ferdinand, Enter Shikari and Biffy Clyro) and mastered by Grammy award winning engineer Adam Ayan after their song 'Long Time Gone' was featured on Netflix Original Series 'Club de Cuervos'. Since then, 'D-Day' have been on a non-stop mission to introduce new audiences to their own alternative brand of rock 'n' roll sensibility.
With two major launch shows organised in Whelan's, Dublin and The Loft, Galway, D-Day's follow-up single 'Movin' On' is scheduled for release on Monday, 20th March.
