Dimple Discs are delighted to announce that they have signed the legendary Dublin group Sack, the much beloved Irish band who released globally acclaimed albums in the 90’s and toured internationally with Morrissey.
The first release will be a download Single ‘What A Way To Live’ (Dimple Discs cat. No. JOEY002) on 20th August 2021 followed in the near future by a new LP and reissues of their back catalogue on vinyl and CD, which will begin hitting record stores from February 2022.
The label first came across the group in the flesh supporting their close friend Sean O’Hagan (of High Llamas and Microdisney fame) at the Grand Social in Dublin. A link up was then always on the cards as they passed the two tests of being lovely human beings and a great ensemble. They join their fine stable of musicians with the indefinable sound that makes them unique.
There will also be a return to the live stage with a handful of shows to promote the single release, beginning with a limited capacity show at Mike The Pie’s in Listowel on Friday, August 13th, followed by a slot at The Grand Social, Dublin as part of the Dublin Quays Festival on Friday, August 27th. The band will close out the year with a headline show at The Grand Social, Dublin on Thursday, December 23rd.
Fans attending these live shows can expect to hear the band debut a host of brand new songs, alongside Sack classics like ‘Laughter Lines’, ‘What Did The Christians Ever Do For Us’ ‘Latitude’ and many more from their revered catalogue.
