Produced by Andy Knightley

::: LIVE ::: Launch gig for "Hunting" - Sat 26/11/11 at Odessa, Dublin, 8pm. Tickets 10 Euro

Following their packed set at Electric Picnic & touring with the acclaimed Portland band Richmond Fontaine, the Gandhis return with a new single - "Hunting" - from the forthcoming album "After Autumn" which is pencilled in for release in early 2012 by acclaimed independent Irish music label 1969 Records, home of the Duckworth Lewis Method, Pugwash, Dave Couse, The Pale, Lir, Q, & Niall Colfer.

Reflective of a much more mature sound and possessing a newfound songwriting confidence since the release of their debut "You Are My Friend" back in 2009, the band have evolved up to a whole new level of musicianship while working extensively with the acclaimed producer & recording impresario Andy Knightley and legendary Dublin guitar bad-ass Conor Brady (The Blades, The Commitments, Jerry Fish, The Corrs, The Partisans, amongst many others). After developing their own unique style of pop quirkiness, epitomized in their self-released debut single 'Zaza' , The Gandhis were signed to 1969 Records. The fruit of this labour was to culminate in 2009's debut album "You Are My Friend" launched to a packed Whelans followed by a handful of high-profile RTÉ appearances (Arena, Saturday Night with Miriam O'Callaghan, The Cafe) . "Hunting" will be available as a free digital download through all usual channels and through the band's website.
