about

The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock return with a new piece called "The Bullet in the Brick", released on 12" EP and digital.

Featuring the same electric guitar orchestra used in ‘Lockout’, the band’s multi-movement work set for release in 2017, "The Bullet in the Brick" explores various aspects of the Easter Rising such as the bombing of Dublin by the British gunship "The Helga", the murder of activist Francis Sheehy Skeffington and its attempted cover-up, and finally the Proclamation of the Irish Republic.

The A-side of the 12” includes the full “Bullet in the Brick” suite while the B-side features a live recording of the first movement from "Lockout".

"One of the inventive acts on the block join forces with the same electric guitar orchestra used in their Lockout project to produce a piece of rare emotional impact." - Irish Times

"Incredibly moving and unflinching in its execution, this latest example of innate creativity from Spook of the Thirteenth Lock furthers cements their status as one of the most unmissable acts in Ireland today." - State

"Where the serenity of traditional folk music meets the electrifying energy of rock, the venturous experimentation of kraut and the sentimentality of post rock...The Spook Of The Thirteenth Lock have also their minds set towards musical innovation and forward-thinking." - Destroy//exist

With their new album "The Brutal Here and Now" they have refined their craft, creating folk rock with with a dark, modern feel. They veer away from their peers in tracing a line from the Irish 60’s folk revival through prog, kraut and post rock. ... more
