Gilla Band announce new album, share first single in 3 years

Words: Dylan Murphy

There’s tour dates too.

Back in November, the group formerly known as Girl Band changed their name to Gilla Band. It came after they shared their 2019 album The Talkies and in the period since there’s been no new music. Today, that changes as they share ‘Eight Fivers’ ahead of a brand new record.

Speaking on Instagram they say, “Hello. Our third album “Most Normal” is out Oct 7th on Rough Trade Records.”

Dara Kiely continued, saying, “Eight Fivers is about 40 quid. It’s about being out of touch with modern circumstances while feeling socially limited. Never fitting in and kind of proud of it. Stuck with what I have and happy for it. Being grateful and not fashionable, self-conscious and too aware of what is lacking. Accepting that jealousy played a big role in my life but trying not to feed into it.”

The news comes alongside a European tour, which includes a date in the National Stadium in Dublin on December 9. Click here for tickets.
