THE MAHONES Announce New Album, and Cait O’Riordan (The Pogues) Officially Joins

The Mahones

The Mahones

Irish punk heavyweights The Mahones have announced that Cait “Rocky” O’Riordan, formerly of The Pogues, has joined the band as their new bass player. This follow’s last year’s announcement of the return of Scruffy Wallace to The Mahones after 12 years with Boston-based Celtic punk band, Dropkick Murphys. The Mahones, pioneers of the Irish punk scene, are now something of a super group, with the genre’s finest musicians playing in the legendary band. O’Riordan and Wallace join band leader Finny McConnell, Katie “Kaboom” McConnell, Guy Lauzon, Sean Winter, Michael O’Grady and Sean Ryan.

The Mahones are also thrilled to announce that they’re currently recording their 17th album and 11th studio album. All new and current members will be recording in Toronto over the course of 2017, having recorded bed tracks earlier this summer at Doghouse Studios in Belfast (owned by Irish punk legend Buck Defect of The Defects).

Love – Death – Redemption is slated for worldwide release on Whiskey Devil Records on January 12th, 2018. The band’s last releases, The Very Best: 25 Years of Irish Punk, The Hunger & The Fight Deluxe, are also now available via all digital retailers on Whiskey Devil Records.
