Are you ready to jive?

Cork is set to go ‘back to college’ in a new tour which will see a group of bands visit several Irish cities.

The Back to College Tour takes place next month, and will see a number of bands take in dates in Dublin, Galway and Cork.

Cork band Red Sun Alert are one of three bands hitting the stage, bringing their combination of progressive rock, math rock and doom metal to audiences in early September. The band released their debut EP ‘Luna’ on 8 August and are previous winners of the CIT Battle of the Bands.

The Back to College Tour also sees the return of sharp-dressed rock‘n’roll band Dead Horse Jive, who are coming off the back of their Should’ve Stayed In tour, when they released an EP of the same name. The Galway band played sets at last year’s Electric Picnic and have been critically championed for their high-energy live performances.

Joining the pair are Dublin band Weather Underground, a four-piece who will play support for both the Dublin and Galway gigs. The playful indie rock four-piece are set to release their ‘Chronic Lateness’ EP in the lead up to the tour.

The Back to College Tour stops in The Loft at the Grand Social in Dublin on 11 September, Roisin Dubh in Galway on 12 September and finally here on Leeside at the Crane Lane Theatre on Wednesday 19 September.

Entry to the Cork show is free for all those looking for a midweek jive to some good old rock ‘n’ roll!
