PURVEYORS of post rock, A Burial At Sea, will visit Tralee as part of their Irish tour tomorrow night (Friday) for a gig at ClubHeadBangBang at the Greyhound Bar

They will be joined on the night by North Kerry/West Limerick band The Low Field (named after the local landmark). Doors open at 9pm and the entrance is free. To register for the gig, click here.

In a genre defined by self-seriousness, A Burial At Sea are the outsiders of the outsiders in post rock. The usual rock n’ roll setup of guitar, bass, drums is bolstered by a mini two-man horn section, which has resulted in the band to be labeled as “trumpet-core” and “post-rock mariachi”.

Following the release of their debut EP in 2017 the band began making waves in the experimental rock scene supporting genre-defining heavyweights Tera Melos and Listener.

The band toured relentlessly across Europe from 2018-2019, often for a month at a time, and even resulting in the hospitalization of a band member.

The gruelling tours included a further high-profile support for the likes of Some Became Hollow Tubes (GY!BE) as well as an appearance at Bergmal Festival 2019 in Zürich, as well as Post In Paris 2019.

The bombastic full length LP released in 2020 draws from everything from emo, to math-rock, to hardcore punk, and even black metal over the course of its 45 minute running time.

The Low Field.

The Low Field formed in Limerick in 2021 by three North Kerry/West Limerick men. Their sound takes influence from their previous projects (Casavettes, Bleeding Heart Pigeons and Deadbog) as well as from bands further afield, with the band’s open lyricism and exploratory instrumental sections resonating well with audiences. The Low Field are working on their debut release.

This event is supported by Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and Kerry County Council through the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme.
