MELTS | Future Yard | Future Yard

We welcome the driving, psych-rock sounds of Dublin’s MELTS to Future Yard for the very first time on Wednesday 24th April.

Comprising of Robbie Brady, Hugh O’Reilly, Gaz Earle, and Eoin Kenny, MELTS spent 2022/2023 touring their celebrated debut album ‘Maelstrom’ across Europe, the UK, the US and Ireland, including festival appearances at Wide Awake and SXSW. Outside of their own headline dates, they’ve also toured with Fontaines D.C. and supported Gilla Band and Public Image Ltd. Along the way they have been praised by the likes of NME, Dork, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan and Paste, alongside gaining widespread airplay on BBC 6 Music.

They kick off their spring 2023 tour with us in Birkenhead in support of their second full length, ‘Fan Theory’, produced by Gilla Band’s Daniel Fox, set to be released on 12th April.

Oranj Son + The Royal Ritual support.

Tickets on sale now.
