Somethings in life are worth waiting for, like a well poured pint of Guinness and Tir na nOg’s latest studio album. It took Sonny and Leo 42 years to record the follow up to their 1973 album ‘Strong In The Sun’. But it was worth the wait.
When ‘The Dark Dance’ was released in 2015 it was hailed as a triumphant return. Prog Magazine called it “an acoustically mounted piece of great refinement, on a record often embellished by strings and moments of eastern promise’’. Classic Rock Magazine said: “Each of these deceptively serene songs has an underlying mysticism, an arcane quality that cannot be denied”. Classic Rock Magazine also placed ‘The Dark Dance’ at number 3 in its best albums of 2015.
Two years’ later and Mega Dodo is honoured to be releasing ‘The Dark Dance’ on vinyl for the first time. It also marks a milestone for Mega Dodo as it’s the label’s 25th album release. To celebrate, the album is being pressed on silver (250 copies) and black (250 copies) vinyl. It’s been newly mastered for vinyl at The Music Mint by Shea Fitzgerald and is being released in a gatefold sleeve designed by Sonny Condell.
Tir na nOg will tour the UK in June and return in November.
