Rock // Westmeath

Described by Hot Press as "Energy, balls and pure rock n' roll" Scally's setlist packs a massive punch of hard hitting rock n' roll. Scally's band - The Dirty Rats - full of intricate and imaginative licks and flicks, decorate his imaginative lyrics with a groove filled grandeur for a true rock n' roll experience likened to Arctic Monkeys, Iggy Pop & Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

After building a up kamikaze catalogue of hard and fast rock n' roll tunes with his band for over a number years Scally first single 'The 7th Commandment' saw him labelled as a "definite one to watch" having "both balls and brains" and a swagger deemed "inspiring"(Stuart Clark, HOT PRESS). Scally released his second single ‘Get Ready For War’ which debuted and stayed at NO.1 in the Irish Rock Charts for two weeks and hit No.10 in the overall charts, whilst 'Filthy Animal' drew praise from Grammys member Richardine Bartee in the US.

Scally's adventures have seen him tour Ireland and the UK extensively pre-pandemic line up alongside The Strypes, The Soap Girls, Fangclub, The Blizzards, Wolff, New Valley Wolves, Bicuroius, Sick Love (Sub Motion), Munky, Mik Pyro & Crow Black Chicken.

After a multitude of successful single releases Scally releases his eagerly anticipated debut album 'Some Buzz' in June 2022, with a tour dates coming soon.
