Join Me In The Pines release Monomania LP

Join Me In The Pines release their new album ‘Monomania’ 30 August

And announce Irish tour this October

David Geraghty is most well-known as a founding member of Bell X1 but in recent years he has been exploring a new solo direction under the moniker “Join Me in the Pines”.

JMITP release their highly anticipated second album Monomania on August 30th 2019. Monomania brims with David’s distinctive vocal and songwriting style but this time he has ventured into an edgy 80s synth-pop world with hints of funk, conjuring shades of Prince, Bowie, Grace Jones and Donna Summer. The album was mixed by the masterful Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, Talos, Brian Deady) and will be released on Decal Records. In advance of the release, renowned Irish music blogger Nialler9 will exclusively premiere the video for ‘She Steps Into The Light’ on Thursday August 1st.

David is the writer, singer and guitarist for Join Me in the Pines, and is joined on stage by Marc Aubele (BellX1, The Walls), Mick Major (Bon Ton Rouler) and Tim Donovan (Neosuperviatl, BellX1). Recently, the band were invited to open for the legendary Hall & Oates at Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens and Cork’s Marquee, and for the wonderful David Gray, also at Cork’s Marquee. This summer they also wowed audiences at Vantastival, Forbidden Fruit and Kaleidoscope, steadily growing their fanbase, and will cap it all off with a slot at Electric Picnic on August 30th.

As a member of Bell X1, David has released seven studio albums to date. In addition to this, Geraghty released two solo albums under his own name. In 2014, David decided to delineate his solo work by giving it a new name, and so “Join Me in the Pines” was born.

David is a five-time Choice Music Prize nominated multi-instrumentalist and composer. In recent years, his solo output has caught the ear of film directors, allowing David to turn his talents towards composing for film and TV. His first project, a short film called The Crush, went on to be nominated for an Academy Award. Subsequent projects have won at Athens, Baton Rouge, Galway and Berlinale film festivals.
