25 Years in the game and 2016 looks like it will be the Mahones busiest year too date with four (yeah frigging four) releases planned this year:-
The Mahones: 25 Years of Irish Punk (The Very Best) will be released in time for St. Patrick’s Day, 2016, just in time for their 25th Anniversary St. Patrick’s Invasion Tour. The Mahones will be recording brand new studio versions of your favourite Mahones punk classics, with their current (classic) lineup: Finny McConnell, Katie Kaboom, Dom “The Bomb” Whelan, Sean “Riot” Ryan, Michael O’Grady, Jonathan Moorman and Sean Winter.
The Mahones: 25 Years of Irish Folk (The Very Best) will be released in time for halfway to St. Patrick’s Day, September 17th, 2016, and will feature brand new acoustic studio versions of your favourite Mahones folk classics.
2016 will also see the release of The Mahones: The Hunger & The Fight (Deluxe Edition). This will feature the double concept album in one, full length CD, in it’s intended operatic (???) form.
Finally, due to very popular demand, they will finally be releasing The Mahones’ first ever album, Clear The Way, a cassette recorded back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. It includes bonus early recordings, recently found by Finny.
Also, a 25th Anniversary Pictorial History book will be released along with a documentary, and a live-in-concert DVD.
