Skies Behind

Alternative // Cork, Cork // He/Him

After 2-years where personal tragedy and circumstance (such as the world generally going to shit in 2020) saw the band take a forced hiatus. They return with their same trademark energy and passion now being combined with a new found maturity and experience to their sound. Not simply picking up where they left off, Skies Behind’s upcoming projects seek to build a community where their cathartic, rhythmic, unique style of rock will connect with fans both live and online.

Skies Behind are a band forged by extensive gigging throughout their teenage years. Consisting of their current lineup since 2018 and consistently playing high energy, engaging shows throughout Cork and Dublin. This emphasis on live performance can be heard in the band's first EP ‘Home’, a release packed full of explosive choruses and hooky rhythm sections which formed the foundation of the Skies Behind sound.

The band draw their influences from acts such as Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Pillow Queens, Lower than Atlantis, to name a few. What began as teenage friends obsessed with pop punk music and dreaming of some day playing on the Warped Tour has now developed into a collection of music enthusiasts whose shared love of modern rock is informed by tastes ranging from folk to ska, jazz to metal, with a couple of other stops along the way.

Skies Behind is Dan Sheedy (Vocals and Rhythm guitar), Joe Clarke (Drums), Richard Brett (Lead Guitar) and Cathal O’Donovan (Bass).
