The Altered Hours

The Altered Hours

Thursday, 4 November 2021, 8.00pm

The Altered Hours are a rock group based in Cork City, Ireland. Their music explores vast psychedelic spaces, immediate post-punk tones, repetitive rhythms and propelling structures. The lyrics bind this wall of noise together, comfortably connecting the escapism of the abstract with the honestly of realism. This duality is played out in song and on stage by the male/female lead singers Elaine Howley & Cathal MacGabhann alongside Patrick Cullen on bass guitar/effects and Nora Lewon on drums. Continuing an “art-punk” tradition while being influenced by artists such as The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Pixies, Iceage, Lydia Lunch, Spacemen 3 & Stereolab.

Over the past few years the 5 piece have been headlining tours in the UK & Europe, creating what some journalists have described as a ‘cult-like’ status. Playing everywhere from ex-government buildings, deconsecrated churches, sheds, parties & anywhere else that will have them. Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre) invited them to record in his studio in Berlin in 2012 which resulted in a 10” vinyl being released on his label. The years ahead are set to be as exciting & energetic as ever for The Altered Hours with the group continuously carving out their own path in rock ‘n’ roll.
