A. Smyth will release a new single ‘Rain Boys’ on Friday, along with extra tickets for his Grand Social gig on November 24th, now a full capacity show.
Smyth says of the track “A curtain closer and curtain opener of a song. It’s about friendships with big dreams that changed along the way and are now just moments frozen in time”.
The Grand Social, presented by Singular Artists, will see A. Smyth playing his first headline show post restrictions, and, the first time he and the band will get to play a full set of tracks from the debut album that was released in February of this year.
Tickets, €14.50 + charges, on sale now via https://www.ticketmaster.ie/venueartist/196734/5289920
