White Male Actors
Strabane, County Tyrone
"By far one of the greatest tributes to the band that I've heard" - Bill Berry, R.E.M. (On White Male Actors' debut single 31 years which was written about R.E.M.)
"Comparable to classic U2" - XS Noize
"Alternative poetic stadium indie-pop. For a debut EP, Ghosts can’t be faulted" - Chordblossom
White Male Actors, formed in late 2012 in Strabane, N. Ireland have already had an incredible beginning. Having had praise heaped on them from rock legends R.E.M. when the band responded extremely favourably to a tribute song penned about them entitled '31 years'. White Male Actors have also caught the attention of famed British producers Gavin Monaghan (Kings of Leon, Editors, Robert Plant) and Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Mel C, Catatonia) who have also heaped praise on their debut EP 'Ghosts' and have expressed wishes to work on further releases.
In May the Irish 3 piece headlined a packed show at the prestigious Sound City festival in Liverpool and have since landed national radio play on BBC Radio One. They also managed to land a featured artist slot in the award winning Kings of A&R blog and in September were invited to be the house band on BBC Across The Line where they performed two tracks from their debut EP 'Ghosts' which was released on October 20th 2014.
In the middle of their Irish promo tour supporting the EP in October the band also made a TV appearance on Irish channel TG4 where they performed the lead track 'Mysteries and Histories' from the EP.
The band have also managed to cause ripples across the pond in Los Angeles with the song 'This is your time' being picked up by staff within the creative artists agency (who have on their artist roster the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Bruno Mars, The Script and Fleetwood Mac among many others).
