One of our favourite acts from Vantastival 2012 was Cry Monster Cry – they had tweeted about leaving home without their guitar and needed one badly, so we knew we just had to catch their set and interview them!
Little did we know we would end up talking about the Mayan calendar, how the world was going to end in 2012, and where their name actually came from.
We’re glad to see Richie and Jamie’s world didn’t end in 2012, and they have since been on the up and up and are releasing their debut album ‘Rhythm of Dawn’ on March 6th.
Check out their current single ‘Postcards’ below.
Showcasing the upcoming album they have announced an Irish tour which sees them sending us postcards from all four corners of Ireland and heading back to Vantastival later this year – Even if they forget a guitar, their set is sure to be a good one. Mark your Mayan calendars people.
