Skies Behind

Alternative // Cork, Cork // He/Him

Skies Behind’s aim is to embrace vulnerability in the face of chaos. Driven by a wish to find community and strength through music, to connect with audiences through a message of love and acceptance, the band delivers an energy and raw emotion that is driven by soaring melody and anthemic rock. Skies Behind’s upcoming single On Our Minds releases 25th March.

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.

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

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.
