Third Island

We had an excellent time at our album launch last weekend! Cheers Bad Reputation IRL for having us on, and to Coroza, Slung From A Tree, and Skellig for their support and awesome sets on the night. And Thanks to everyone who made it out - We'll see you all again soon.
In the meantime our album is still available - head over to our bandcamp and give it a lash.

Cheers Doom Heart for the shout! If you haven't geard out new song yet, give it a whirl below.

Doom Heart
!!!NEW!!!

From Limerick City, Ireland, here you are magnificent atmospheric alternative darkened sludge doom / post-rock-metal band Third Island with a wonderful song off their incoming 2nd full-length "Unspeakable", out November 29th!

Third Island is a post metal band formed in 2015 and based in Ireland. Drawing from a wide array of influences including doom, post rock, shoegaze, sludge, and stoner rock, the band aims to create a unique sound blending huge guitars tones and dark atmospheres.

"Unspeakable" is themed around a selection of short stories by H.P. Lovecraft, with each song lyrically following a different story. Musically more organic than previous releases - being written and recorded with a live focus - it uses the doomy post-metal of earlier material as a template and explores more stripped back and melodic passages on top, taking a more refined approach to the style without compensating their usual oppressive heft!

The Band is:

Liam O'Connor - Guitars, Vocals
John Quill - Guitars, Vocals
Séamus Quaid - Bass
Scott Kemp - Drums

Enjoy "Ward"!

We are delighted to announce the upcoming release of our new album, Unspeakable.

The second full length by Third Island, Unspeakable is themed around a selection of short stories by H.P. Lovecraft, with each song lyrically following a different story. Musically more organic than previous releases - being written and recorded with a live focus - it uses the doomy post-metal of earlier material as a template and explores more stripped back and melodic passages on top, taking a more refined approach to the style without compensating their usual oppressive heft.

Available on CD and Download 29th November 2019. Preview tracks and launch show details coming soon.

We can't wait to show you what we've been up to. Thanks as always for your support.
- Third Island.

It's been a while since we've posted something, so how about an update?

We've been a little quiet lately, thanks to a busy few months, but have also been working away in the background on our next album. A good portion is written, with some ironing out we'll be ready to record and release before the year is over. We'll post some more once we get into the process, and will hopefully be back on a stage near you in the later half of this year to show you what we've been up to.

In the meantime, our Album, EPs and Singles are all on the usual sites online, neatly collected for you to find here: thirdislandband.com - feel free to share around and remind everybody how miserable we are.

Thanks as always for your support.
