I was walking in NYC 10+ years ago and saw this band performing a street fair as far as I can remember. What I witnessed was two energetic frontman from Ireland wooing the crowd. I asked them for a demo and I posted them on Kings in 2003. Anyhow, I just heard they signed to Interscope and will hit the road with P!NK in October, and November and will headline in Australia.
