  • Blood or Whiskey is an Irish band known for their mix of Celtic music with punk styles, who found success in the Irish and North American markets following tours there in the late 2000s. Following a break, the band returned to the live circuit in April 2012. Likened often to Irish band The Pogues, however the band themselves state their influences to be more accurately described as a hybrid of The Dubliners meets The Clash. Having released 2 EP's & 3 albums (Cashed Out On Culture still widely thought by some as an Irish gem), with tours of the East Coast of America (including one with Irish-American band the Dropkick Murphy's), a regular feature at the Rebellion Festival over the last 8 years (Morecambe, Dublin & Blackpool), and a tour of Japan under their belts, other career highlights included; supporting SLF on a UK tour, opening for Manu Chao, Rancid & The Pogues, playing Oxygen (2009), Reading & Leeds (2010), Blood Or Whiskey have covered some ground in recent years. The band played festivals in the UK in 2011, returning to Rebellion in Blackpool and Reading & Leeds (having entertained the crowds there in 2010 on the Lock Up Stage). They played Arthurs Day in Dublin in 2012 and opened for Rancid in November at the SOLD OUT Academy Dublin. this was followed by a tour in Germany in December of the same year. 2013 opened with the band securing a place on the bill with Frank Turner and Dropkick Murphys, at their SOLD OUT Dublin show. Early April 2013 saw them take in a ten date jaunt across Europe, stopping in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium. What these dates have shown is that not only have the band retained fans from the past but they have also found a new audience. In May they were back out with more dates across Germany, the Czech Republic & Austria. They headlined the Warzone Fest in Belfast on August 23 and opened for Alkaline Trio at The Academy Dublin on August 26 and played The Foggy Dew in Dublin on Arthur's Day. Blood or Whiskey 2014 saw the band release the new single (Gone and Forgotten on Feb 21st), followed by their 4th album Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil, which was released in March 2014. Hotpress Magazine called it ˜Devilishly Good and A diabolical good listen", giving it an 8 out of 10 rating. Although there had been a touch of ska in previous releases, the new album adds ska, reggae and dub to the original sound. The album launch gig was headlining the Saint Patricks Day Festival in Belfast. They opened for All Time Low two days later in the Olympia Dublin and went down a storm. The first part of the Shame The Devil Tour was 16 dates that took them across 6 countries (Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, France and Italy). The new material broadened the band's appeal and numbers were up across the tour. June saw them at the Roma-Ember Against Racism Festival in Zurich. July saw them back touring and opening for old pals the Dropkick Murphys across England, at the Bristol show Dugs was invited to join them onstage for Shipping up to Boston! They returned to England in August for the BoomTown Fair and a triumphant return to Rebellion in Blackpool where Jello Biafra was even spotted bopping down the front. Big plans are afoot for the rest of 2014, the bags are packed! For fans of The Pogues / Dropkick Murphy's / Flogging Molly / Greenland Whalefishers / Gogol Bordello / Manu Chao / The Specials / The Dubliners & The Clash! (en)
  • Blood or Whiskey — ирландская фолк-панк-группа из города Лейкслип (графство Килдэр), сформированная в 1994 году. На музыкантов оказало влияние творчество Шейна Макгоуэна, The Pogues и The Clash. В начале своей карьеры группа имела определённые проблемы с восприятием своего нетрадиционного музыкального материала в среде несколько консервативной местной публики, но после выхода в 1996 году дебютного эпонимического альбома (на лейбле Punkcore Records) группу оценили должным образом и стали приглашать как на фестивали традиционной музыки, так и на панк-вечеринки.В 2001 году после пятилетнего перерыва Blood or Whiskey выпустили второй альбом No Time to Explain и провели турне по США. В 2003 году группу покинул фронтмен Барни Марри. Функцию вокалиста взял на себя гитарист Дагс Малхоли. После изменений в составе последовал третий релиз Cashed out on Culture.Весной 2006 года, по завершении турне по Великобритании с группой Stiff Little Fingers, скончался от сердечного приступа Алан Конфри в возрасте 33 лет. Тяжело переживая несчастье, группа приостановила деятельность. После некоторых перестановок (пришёл новый басист Питер Маллан) в сентябре 2007 года начались европейские гастроли вместе с The Misfits; турне носило название Back from the Brink («Возвращение из бездны»). 23 декабря 2007 года в Дублине состоялся совместный концерт Blood or Whiskey и The Pogues.В 2009 году вышел мини-альбом Live and Learn. Как сообщается на официальном сайте коллектива, в настоящее время музыканты работают над четвёртым студийным альбомом. (ru)
