Brand New Single ‘The Righteous Way’ Out 25th April

From their forthcoming debut album ‘Ballroom Addicts’ releasing 9th May

And Tour Dates Announced!


Hailing from Bray county Wicklow, Big September is a gang of indie rockers who burst onto the scene in early 2013 and have stamped their name firmly into the minds of many since their arrival. Five friends from school, who got together as a handy excuse to miss the odd class, certainly love to live the rock n roll lifestyle and have no qualms about it. This honesty breathes through the songs and especially the live performance.

Big September are set to release their brand new single ‘The Righteous Way’ on the 25th April taken from their highly anticipated debut album ‘Ballroom Addicts’ which is due for release on May 9th 2014. If ‘The Righteous Way’ is anything to go by you will certainly find yourself impatiently waiting for the arrival of the new album!

Front man, Scotty O’Neill, possesses charisma in abundance and has the ability to grab a crowd by the scruff of the neck, and shake them into submission without laying a finger on them. He is backed up by Dave Butler (guitar/vocals) who sings from the soul with a voice that could stand up in any band or musical era. Cillian Duane (lead guitar) is a blues boy through and through, with the classic unpredictability live, that stuns many an audience. The rhythm section is made up with Dan Smith, a pounding drummer who makes you feel you’re glad you’re not on the other end of the sticks, and Graham “Naylor” O’Neill on bass and main song writing duties who delivers anthem after anthem with clever lyrics and simple hooks. The chemistry and true gang mentality of this group is seldom found, but witnessing the force that is Big September displays how such a seldom find can be so successful.

The name Big September means a lot to the band as it is dedicated to a close friend who passed away in recent years. A friend who always believed in the lads and this in turn spurred them on to prove they’ve got what it takes. With their debut album “Ballroom Addicts” finished and ready to be unleashed, and an album launch booked with MCD in The Academy on Saturday 17th May, this is destined to be their year. They proved throughout 2013 that they can cut it on the live circuit playing all the major venues around the country with many sell out shows such as The Academy in December.

Big September play the length and breadth of the country this year so make sure you catch at least one of their shows as this is one act you don’t want to miss out on!
