The Killdares celebrate 15 years performing at State Fair of Texas with new album & Dr. Pepper

By: The Killdares
Delivering their core mix of passionate vocals, wailing electric guitar, fiery fiddle and hypnotic bagpipes, The Killdares will unveil several songs from their new studio collection Steal The Sky. Produced by veteran Dallas-based touring musician, composer and producer Jordan Critz (Green River Ordinance, Tim Halperin), the album showcases the natural chemistry between drummer and lead singer Tim Smith, six time National Fiddle Champion Roberta Rast, competition bagpiper Matt Willis and newer members Gary Thorne (bass) and Mike Urness (electric guitar).
Still setting trends as a progressive indie/DIY unit, the cutting edge Celtic rock fusion innovators urge us on their eclectic seventh release to “Wake up and steal the sky/Become the treasure we deny.” Steal The Sky strikes an artful balance between simply told, poignant tales of love and loss with deep and inspiring philosophical tunes about everything from the nature of being to personal ambition. The 11 song collection will be released world-wide digitally on Tuesday, September 23rd. The physical CD will also be available exclusively at the State Fair and via The Killdares website, and will officially be available in stores Tuesday, October 21st.
