Blood or Whiskey: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil

Press Release from Blood or Whiskey:

Celtic punks, Blood or Whiskey who hail from Kildare and Dublin launch their 4th album, ‘Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil’, which drops on March 14th round it’s a self-financed and released album with no label involvement. Its a remarkably up-tempo sounding album considering it’s all about struggle (recession / war / ill health / emigration), with a matured sound and the addition of ska being clearly evident, although retaining their unique take on the celtic punk genre.

They have toured the US twice (once with Dropkick Murphy’s), toured Japan, have been around Europe literally countless times, toured with Stiff Little Fingers, have opened for legends like The Pogues (4 times), Manu Chao / Rancid / Misfits and have played the Reading & Leeds , Rebellion and Oxegen festivals. Memorably

Blood or Whiskey played the original CBGB’s in New York and even had Topper Headon (The Clash), join them on stage at a Canterbury show.

The album is available on iTunes and from Tower Records, Freebird and Spin Dizzy in Dublin or at their gigs from March 14th

FFO: The Dubliners / The Pogues / Dropkick Murphy’s / Flogging Molly & The Clash.

Renowned for their raucous shows, the re-energized band deliver their signature blend of

Celtic punk like their lives depended on it! Go see ….
