Naked Lungs

Post-Punk // Wicklow

Heralded as “Ireland’s next noise rock heroes” by Hot Press Magazine, Naked Lungs are a four-piece noise-punk band that have taken on 2023 with the release of their highly acclaimed debut album “Doomscroll”.

2022 saw the band rise to prominence with the release of their caustic self-titled EP that garnered international support with repeated plays and features on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6, international independent radio and a shoutout from Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop. They followed this up with several sold-out Irish headlines, a UK tour and festival run, alongside two sold-out Therapy? Support slots.

2023 began with them being named as one of NME’s “100 for 2023”, a list of artists set to take off for the coming year. The were summarised as “Doom-ridden noise punk that sounds like Trent Reznor’s been on the Guinness”.

“Doomscroll”, their debut album, released in August and immediately garnered widespread acclaim from the likes of NME, HotPress, Metal Hammer Magazine, Classic Rock Magazine and Beats Per Minute. The band followed this with a 16 date UK headline tour and several festival slots in the EU, playing Supersonic Paris, Left of the Dial Rotterdam and Hit the City, Eindhoven.

The band are currently booking dates for 2024.

For those wondering: they are just as brutally loud live. Be sure to bring your earplugs.
