The Altered Hours – ‘Over The Void’

The Altered Hours share their intense ‘Over The Void’ video, a furious rocker that edges post-punk and noise rock. The Irish band will release a new EP ‘On My Tongue’ on March 9 through Art for Blind/Penske Recordings. ‘Over The Void’ follows last year’s single ‘Open Wide’. The new recording is tipped to be darker/grittier than their debut record ‘In Heat Not Sorry’. The Altered Hours have also announced fresh UK and European tour dates this march. One to keep an ear on.

Umm, is this chilled psychedelia? Jazz? Space rock? Kinda… all of those and not at all! Tuath are here to smash your preconceptions. The band hail from Donegal in the Republic of Ireland, and their video for ‘Existence Is Futile’ is successfully evading any attempt at pigeon holing.
