Delorentos will close the decade with four shows in Ireland celebrating the 10th Birthday of their bestloved

composition, S.E.C.R.E.T. Spawned in 2009, included on the Dublin combo’s second album,

released as a single at the same time and accompanied by a low-budget, perfectly judged video that

helped it become an instant live favourite, a cult radio hit and a much-anticipated regular closing song

for the band’s live shows worldwide.

The shows promise an opportunity to grab a first listen to some of the new songs the band have been

working on in 2019 as well as a chance to check out reworkings of old favourites and some forgotten

classics along the way. And expect some special surprises that hint at the band’s next direction!

Delorentos’ determined rise has been a wonderful (and, at times, tortuous) chaos – break-ups, labels

collapsing, reformations and critical awards, worldwide tours and packed houses. Throughout the 4

schoolfriends (aided and abetted by a host of unseen others) have strived to better themselves with

every step they take. 5 studio albums (and one acoustic album) have seen them achieve critical

acclaim and 5 consecutive Top 10 Chart Positions in Ireland. 100s of live shows - from Mexico City to

Munich, Moscow to Madrid, Memphis to Milan (and all the other letters of the alphabet inbetween) -

have seen them thrill audiences the world over with electric and acoustic shows, and they’ve loved

(nearly) every minute of it!

Film and TV syncs have been regular occurrences and they are currently “the sound of Ireland”

courtesy of "Home Again” having been chosen as the theme tune to Tourism Ireland’s global

advertising campaign. In a world where so much emphasis is placed on “brand new” they continue to

revel in writing albums and playing live shows that are ever more passionate, raw and exciting! With 5

top 10 studio albums under their collective belt already they’re still champing at the bit and looking

for the next challenge!
