11-02-2018 12:00:00 11-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York The Coronas | 9:00 PM With four double platinum albums, a slew of top ten singles, sold out arenas and a legion of devoted fans behind them The Coronas have earned their title as one of Ireland's best loved and hardest working bands. This year, 2017, The Coronas will release their 5th studio album Trust The Wire revealing their most refined and confi- dent record to date and with this milestone Danny O'Reilly (vocals, guitar), Graham Knox (bass), Conor Egan (drums) and Dave McPhillips (guitar) have much to reflect upon. The Coronas burst into the Irish consciousness with their debut single Decision Time in 2007. It had been a decade since the guitar bands of the 90's ruled supreme and The Coronas injected the Irish airwaves with a refreshing dose of catchy ruckus once again. A new wave of millennial rockers were arriving (Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks) and The Coro- nas were leading the pack in Ireland. By the end of 2007 The Coronas had released their debut album Heroes or Ghosts to huge acclaim and had 3 hit singles in the charts; the last of which San Diego Song set Irish radio aflame and propelled The Coronas into the spotlight. But despite the height of 2007's trajectory The Coronas success was not achieved overnight. In fact the seeds were sown back in the 80's when newborn Graham Knox met his 2 week old brother-in-arms Danny O'Reilly. Their parents already shared a friendship deeply rooted in music and so the stage was set. Graham Knox and Danny O'Reilly went on to attend Terenure College secondary school in Dublin together, along with classmate Conor Egan. All three were heavily involved in music at the school and as they experimented with songwrit- ing, playing live became their shared ambition. They took their first jab at the live music scene in 2001 as Kiros; the buzz was incomparable and the friends were hooked. The band went through various transformations and eventually emerged as The Coronas, a four piece band with fellow dub Dave McPhillips on guitar shredding duties and classmate Jim Lawless enlisted as manager, who remains at the helm today. Early days saw The Coronas hit the small venue circuit in Dublin, gathering a steady following and packing venues by word of mouth. Two EPs from 2005 (and from a time when they were called Corona) had spread like wildfire among Dublin students at home and abroad that summer. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=258279 Bowery Ballroom Bowery Ballroom
