Friends of Emmet announce details of their new Single 'Coming Apart"
+ Dublin show announced: The Sugar Club April 11th
Friends Of Emmet (F.O.E) are a veteran mainstream pop band originally from Dublin, Ireland, but are now based in Los Angeles CA. The band members are Mark Leddy (Vocals) Brian Lynam (Guitar) Keith Geraghty (Bass), Gary Sullivan (Drums), & Tim Boland (Guitar & Keyboards). Set to release their LP ‘State Of Mind’ in 2013; the album consists of eleven songs, all of which have been licensed to MTV.
One of the tracks, ‘Hero’, will be featured in the independent movie ‘The Saving’. Another song, ‘Coming Apart’, is a tribute to Kevin Hines, who attempted to take his own life at the young age of 19, yet survived after jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. Hines is one of the few to ever survive the suicide plunge from 245 feet above the water. Upon hearing about Hines’ story, the band found themselves inspired by the turn of events and wrote ‘Coming Apart’ in his honour, which is featured on the album.
F.O.E have spent considerable time building up a following on both sides of the Atlantic, apart from receiving airplay support in multiple countries including America, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Australia and the UK, they are eagerly looking forward to releasing their first official Single and making a return to Ireland to perform a selection of intimate shows Nationwide in early 2013.
Having showcased recently at Canadian Music Week and Musexpo in LA, the bands music has been synced across various TV shows in the US and Europe. Which lead them to be invited onto #1 morning show in Canada (Canada AM). The official ‘Coming Apart’ Video was just featured on the CBS Sunday Morning Show (USA) and will be the first single taken from the new album. It will be released on Feb 22nd 2013 on iTunes.
