Rowdy Outsider are a pop punk/alternative rock band from Drogheda, Ireland.
Made up of vocalist Matthew Doyle, Drummer Sean Murtagh and Bassist/Guitarist Conor Whearty. Rowdy Outsider fuse the rock sounds of the nineties and noughties with contemporary ideas, topics and productions.
“The Ireland outfit fuses pop, punk and new wave sounds to create music that is nostalgic yet contemporary.”(EarMilk)
The band's latest single '2 DEAD CATS' helped the band secure their first Spotify editorial landing being chosen for 'New Music Friday UK' and 'A Breath of Fresh Eire". Support for the single also came from Hot Press Magazine and RTE 2FM.
Formed in 2018, the band released their debut single in January 2020 and have since followed up with a string of independent releases in the last two years.
2022 saw the band play extensively in the Dublin scene, performing in venues including The Workman’s Club, The Sound House and a sold out headline show in Whelan’s. Alongside playing live, the band spent the latter part of 2022 writing and recording new music.
With a sound that recalls early Green Day and Sum 41, 2023 promises an angrier, louder and more mature Rowdy Outsider.
