PODRACER Release New Album ‘Maskenfreiheit’

Angry, noisy, trashy, punchy and irreverent as they possibly could be, Irish three-piece Podracer take the post-punk sounds of the 80’s, the subpop sounds of the 90’s and different elements of rock and punk to create a sound that defies the categorization of genre-tagging social media.

Their debut album “Parking Cars & Pumping Gas” was released on September 2012 and since then they have shared the stage with some of Ireland’s finest rockers including Kerbdog, Little Matador (Snow Patrol’s Nathan Connolly’s side project), Whipping Boy, LaFaro, Giveamanakick & Fighting With Wire.

2017 saw the lads on their first mini-tour of the UK and while busy with local gigs, 2018 was very much a focus on songwriting. Their new single ‘Honey’ was released on April 6th of this year as a forerunner for their second album ‘Maskenfreiheit’ which was engineered by Jason Varley at The Shop Recording Studio in Carlingford and mixed/mastered by Neal Calderwood at Manor Park Studio, scheduled to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting public on July 12th 2019.

With a thirteen-date Irish tour lined up for July and August, expect to see Podracer sharing stages with some of Ireland’s hottest new talent including Cherym, THVS, Magnapinna and Duellists, plus festival appearances at Disturbance Fest and Arcadian Field……

I personally absolutely love this album. It takes me back to the 90’s and has a real Wildhearts/Kerbdog feel. All good in my book!
Without doubt one of my favorite Irish releases this year. It’s an absolute banger from start to finish!
