Formed in the first wave of British post-rock alongside the likes of Mogwai in the late 90s, John Peel favourites Billy Mahonie are set to return with the first new music from their original line-up in some twenty-four years. Whilst their debut album ‘The Big Dig’, released in 1999 on Too Pure Records, is considered a classic of the post rock genre, Billy Mahonie always crafted their intricate music with memorable hooks and melodies and performed it with energy and gusto. Theirs was not an aimless, meandering sound, instead the songs and attitude were rooted in punk rock, and still are. Billy Mahonie put the rock into post-rock.

Lauded by many as one of Britain’s influential finest Live bands in the late 90s and early 00s, previously released on Fierce Panda, Static Caravan, and Southern Records, Billy Mahonie instrumental rock quartet are back on tour. Taking in many of the towns and cities previously played (Glasgow, Leicester, Cambridge, London, Brighton) and some new places, the band members have never felt so stoked to get out on the road.

The classic lineup of Gavin Baker, Hywell Dinsdale, Howard Monk and Kevin Penney are bringing the new album Field of Heads, out in May on their newly formed label: Whistling Sam Projects, to Brighton.
