CIARAN LAVERY National Tour includes a date in The Sugar Club October 5th. Doors: 8pm. Tickets €17 includes booking fee on sale tomorrow at 9am. This show is over 18’s – I.D is required.

Having wowed the likes of Q, Clash Magazine, The Independent and KCRW with his recently revealed album ‘Let Bad In”, Ciaran Lavery returns today with the video for album track, ‘Okkervil River’ and announces National Tour which includes a date in The Sugar Club, October 5th, tickets on sale tomorrow at 9am.

The song which caught the attention of the band it is named after is given a wonderful visual by Daniel Holmes, who compliments Ciaran’s earthy, heartfelt vocals beautifully. A cautionary tale against losing the fiery hope of youth in the complexity of adult life the videos story unfolds much like Laverys songwriting with themes emerging that are evocative and not obvious.

Ciaran also announces the Irish leg of the “Prince of Norway “, October tour today which will take in dates across Ireland, UK and Europe. Announced today are dates in Dublin, Dundalk, Cork, Kilkenny and Galway.

Okkervil River is taken from the Let Bad In Album: LET BAD IN is essentially an album based on the naivety of childhood & the loss of that innocence with age. It all started as his uncle handed him an old VHS tape with home video footage of a family trip when he was 7, and that’s how the album started taking shape.

“I was watching myself being so carefree, just doing things because I felt like it. I didn’t react to anything, I just did”, says Lavery. “It made me think about how much I can’t relate to that person anymore, as an older version of myself – I’m scarred by experience & previous life choices that have altered all my decisions for better or worse. No matter how much I try, I will never be that 7-year-old version of myself, I will never have that wide eyed innocence.”
