Gurriers Return With Sign Of The Times

Gurriers are back with their explosive second single Sign Of The Times. Arriving just as the group return from their packed and incendiary live shows at The Great Escape, the new single is a low growl of Irish punk, led by a stalking bassline that detonates with distorted guitars on the chorus.

Described as “raw as a butcher’s cut, and just as fresh” by the Irish TimesGurriers have been championed by the likes of Steve Lamacq at BBC Radio 6 Music and The Needle Drop’s Anthony Fantano. Sign Of The Times follows in the footsteps of their debut single Approachable.The raging, intense vocals from lead singer Dan Hoff and wave of post-punk instrumentation are essential to Gurriers’ sound.

Speaking of the single, the band said: “Sign Of The Times examines the human obsession with violence, and how we have all become desensitised to the horrors we witness online through the growth of social media.”

Gurriers formed during the pandemic and emerged the other side with a debut gig on Halloween 2021 and have since become an important part of an increasingly talked-about Irish scene. For the last two years they’ve honed their incendiary performances from local venues through European festival stages rapidly making a name for themselves in the process. Reverberating guitars, epic melodies and vocals bursting with snotty self-confidence bind Gurriers’ songwriting into a mesmerising live tour de force.

With experience supporting acts like Enola GaySurf CurseBeen Stellar, and Goat Girl, their growing notoriety as a band not to miss has seen them tour the UK recently with Chappaqua Wrestling and Mary Wallopers, playing festivals such as The Great Escape (UK), SWN (UK), Mad Cool (ES), Reeperbahn (DE), and London Calling (NL), and the band have shows lined up at 2000 TreesLatitude FestivalElectric Picnic and Pitchfork Music Festival London with more TBA.

Evolving in this time from a no-name musical project to an uncompromising punk rock band, Gurriers are leading the way for the movement of exciting new bands out of Ireland.

Upcoming UK & Ireland live dates:

7th – 2000 Trees Festival, Cheltenham
21st – Latitude Festival, Henham Park

3rd – Electric Picnic, Stradbally

11th – Pitchfork Music Festival London
