Delorentos do a Juniper!


I hate being the 20th Irish music blogger to pass on the news that Delorentos are calling it a day when they release their second album! Delorentos have been one of Ireland's most successful bands in recent years and released a great debut "In Love With Detail" in 2007. The following was press info released by the band:

"It's with a very heavy heart that we have to let you know that Ronan has decided to leave the band. He feels its best for him to move on and do other things. The three of us will still be making music and will let you know about what happens next.
As our songs always came from the four of us playing together we've also decided that it wouldn't feel right to continue "delorentos" without him.

We're all very proud of the songs we've written over the last year, we feel they're some of the best we've ever done, and as a result we're determined not to discard them or let them go.

Next month, the four of us are going to record this album together and plan on making it something we'll all be proud of. It'll be our last collection of songs as delorentos, and we hope you'll like them.

We want to thank everyone that's supported us since we started, we'd never have gotten this far without you. We hope to play a gig or two to say goodbye.
We'll be in touch soon with more details.

Ross, Niall and Kieran and Ro."

Maybe Delorentos will do a Juniper and become the new Damien Rice and Bell X1! Got to see a positive in the basis of everything!



Here is the apt lyrics for the Delorentos song 'Do You Realise'

I came to you the other day, to try and find out
You wouldn't listen but you always have something to say
A winning smile with airs and grace can help you ride out the stormy seas
You tease you always have something to say

Do you realise all you've done is cause a rift between us,
A rift between your heart and mine

You tread a line most wouldn't dare, and then you leave
But it's not over, no you've always got a game to play
And I can't stop you because I don't want to
It's much easier to turn and look the other way

Do you realise all you've done is cause a rift between us,
A rift between your heart and mine
