Spook 12" launch
The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock launch the 12” of their 1916 piece “The Bullet in the Brick” with a special performance in Whelan's on Thursday, December 1st. This will be a performance with electric guitar orchestra, featuring 18 musicians, taking the band’s alt rock, trad and folk influences in a new and unexpected direction.
Recorded ahead of ‘Lockout’, the band’s multi-movement work set for release in early 2017, "The Bullet in the Brick" explores various aspects of the Easter Rising such as the bombing of Dublin by the British gunship "The Helga", the murder of activist Francis Sheehy Skeffington and its attempted cover-up, and finally the Proclamation of the Irish Republic.
The 12" is available to pre-order now and will be released on November 25th.
