Last Shows of 2008!
"Dressed To Kill" - Goodguy UK D2K Remix Available to Download from www.reverbnation.com/stand

Original version on the Dublin band’s much-anticipated 4th album TRAVEL LIGHT which proved to be a radio hit in Ireland & the USA. Legendary Club Re-mixer Goodguy heard the track on radio in London & contacted the band immediately to produce this stonkin’ version! Since decamping to New York 5 years ago, STAND has amassed a huge stateside following which saw them on many ‘best of’ lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone, New York Times for both their live shows and on Albums. Featuring the two completely different vocal styles (Alan Doyle & Neil Eurelle) blend together to make a wall of sound with beautifully melodic results.

New York - November 2008

After months of sonic construction and underground whispering, Dublin's STAND released their fourth album proper, “Travel Light” onto the world last November. What emerged can only be described as their strongest body of songs to date.

Mr. Walsh wore the producer hat, sifting through the do's and dont's, letting the songs core breathe, giving a fine “Slan” (Goodbye) to tiresome layering. The melodies carry the weight. This album finds Neil and Alan in fine voice.

The venues: Buffalo, Rhinebeck, Manhattan, NYC and Lexington KY. Work started in a northern blizzard and finished under a southern sun. A departure from and companion to the 2005 guitar driven Transmissions, Travel Light has been hailed by critics and fans on both sides of the sea.

The band has been playing these songs across the web and in the rock rooms of Dublin and the US Northeast while writing material for the next recorded effort. After selling out the famed Bowery Ballroom last spring, the band will return to New York to test drive new material at The Mercury Lounge on Thursday, December 11th. From there, onward.

The four lads from STAND met and began playing together in southwest Dublin. After two discs on their indie label produced singles on Irish radio charts, the band took a trip to Austin's SXSW. They relocated to New York and spent the past few years playing on the limitless stages of the eastern U.S. where critics and college audiences alike took notice.

Their near constant touring has earned them a fiercely loyal fan-base, developed by penning consistently intelligent, distinctive songs, and delivering them through a captivating live show. After one appearance before a massive summer festival crowd, Buffalo News rock critic Jeff Miers declared them a "a gimmickless band, able to generate feverish excitement both on the stage and in the studio."

In early 2006, STAND stood still in Buffalo, New York. Stuck in a February blizzard after a sold out show, the band took refuge at Chameleon West, home to that town's beloved Goo Goo Dolls, and commenced the recording of their latest workbook, Travel Light. Started in a Buffalo blizzard and completed in the late summer sun of Lexington, Kentucky, this is their most exploratory work to date and the early reviews are in. After a break in the homeland, the band returns to New York and will pick up the Travel Light tour where it last left off. The band played to a sold out room at The Bowery Ballroom in February '08 and return to the States to do it all again in mid June '08. Stay tuned.

Once upon a time, a great group named simply "Stand" produced an album called "Transmissions".

Double A-Side single from the Dublin band’s 4th album “Travel Light” & is the follow up to the radio hit “Dress to Kill”
www.myspace.com/standland and www.standland.com
"STAND may Travel Light, but they mostly fly First Class" - Olaf Tyaransen (HOT PRESS)

Features the duelling vocals of Neil & Alan, STAND's new single “Days Gone” is now a firm favourite in the bands live set. The smoldering “Sometimes” is a bonus track not featured on the album & is the first song penned by guitarist Alan Doyle to be commercially released! Since decamping to New York 5 years ago, STAND has amassed a huge stateside following which saw them on many ‘best of’ lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone, New York Times for both their live shows and on Albums.

“Travel Light” is a departure from the guitar based work of "Transmissions", the band are feverishly proud of the songs recorded here and as always, are taking them out on the road as the “Stand Van” barrels on down the highways of America.

"A sonically dense record, it is a pitch perfect melange of tight hooks, engaging studio tectures and infectious percussion." IRISH VOICE

"The show you catch in a club will be the same one you catch in the arena. Trust me, that's where these Irishmen are headed." Frank DeBlase Rochester City News

“Strong, passionate and deeply melodic rock with shades of drama of the Smiths and tunefulness of Coldplay run through a decidedly guitar-heavy meat grinder.” Buffalo News (New York)

Stand are four lads from Dublin, Ireland who got a taste of the United States on a trip in to play Austin’s SXSW Festival. Awed at the prospect of limitless venues, they made the move and headquartered themselves out of New York in 2002. They built a solid following in the Northeast, being voted Best Band on the NACA college circuit in both 2005 and 2006.

The band quickly set another foothold in New York on the western end of the state after being asked to perform twice at the Thursday in the Square summer festival in Buffalo, NY. Jeff Miers of the Buffalo News picked up on their stunning live performances and declared them “a gimmickless band.”

The band stayed put in Buffalo last spring and entered Chameleon West Studio to commence work on this, Travel Light, their fourth long player. Composer/guitarist and studio savvy David Walsh took the production helm, working with Michael McCoy, former head engineer at the legendary Hit Factory in NYC.

The recordings that make up this album commenced in Buffalo in a springtime blizzard and ended in the early summer sun at Lexington Kentucky’s St. Claire Recordings. A departure from the guitar based work of their 2004 work Transmissions, the band are feverishly proud of the songs recorded here and as always, are working them out on the road as the van barrels on down the highway. Developing their songs and moving records from the van and their NYC headquarter, these four very different guys, in the most magical way of the best band to do so before them, merge into one upon taking the stage.

Remember Gang Of Four? No? Well you're gonna remember Stand . The band churns out that type of melodic rock that spans tastes and tolerances. It's nice when a band can affect you emotionally as well as physically. Consider yourself lucky to be able to catch this group from Dublin rock a little joint like Johnny's. The show you catch in a pub or club will be the same you catch in the arena. And trust me this is where these Irishmen are headed.

“Strong, passionate and deeply melodic rock with shades of drama of the Smiths and tunefulness of Coldplay

- Buffalo News (New York)

STAND returned home from New York to play a rare Dublin show in the Whelans on December 29 to preview their forthcoming album "TRAVEL LIGHT" which will be released in Ireland Spring 2007.

Last year the band released (America only) the album "Transmissions", which has so far sold 25,000 copies in the USA. STAND will be playing new songs featured on the forthcoming album "Travel Light" never before heard by Irish audiences.

STAND formed on the streets and schoolyards of Dublin, Ireland in the late 90’s. No want ads, no third-party introductions, just like-minded musicians with a shared passion. They spent the first two years together writing songs and performing continuously in clubs throughout Ireland and Europe—developing into one of the most talked about bands on the Irish scene. Their first release “Correspondent” landed on the charts with two Top Ten songs and garnered sales of over 20,000 copies sold.

In mid-1999, having built a loyal fan base in their native Ireland, STAND played a sold-out show to 1200 fans at Vicar Street in Dublin and departed for America shortly thereafter. This band from the outskirts of Dublin took New York City, literally, one stage at a time.

[They have] "more energy than a barrel of monkeys" raved Ken Gorka, owner of the legendary Bitter End (and the newish Crash Mansion,) when he first saw them play. The band soon hit the college circuit playing 5 to 6 times a week to an increasingly fanatical audience. This website has received over 200,000 hits since its debut in January of 2003.

Between a rigorous and exhausting touring schedule, they recorded a batch of songs in various ad hoc spaces while sorting through production options. To whet the appetite of their audience, a single from one of their past recording was released.

Colm O'Hare of Hot Press declared the appropriately titled Sleeping On Our Feet "a great tune...the chugging drone of the dual guitars or the faintly apocalyptic vocals reminiscent of the great Psychedelic Furs in their prime."

STAND immediately thereafter went into exile with proven veteran producer/engineer David Seitz (Jeff Buckley, Shawn Colvin, John Wesley Harding, Dar Williams) at the renowned Clubhouse Studio in upstate New York to record the band latest album Transmissions, currently only available in America or www.standland.com

STAND
return home from New York for the Holidays and play a rare Dublin show in Whelans www.whelanlive.com . The band will be selling copies of the current (American only) album "Transmissions". STAND will be playing new songs never before heard by Irish audiences before they go into the studio in New York to record their next album to be produced by Mark Owen (WEEZER, NO DOUBT).

STAND formed on the streets and schoolyards of Dublin, Ireland in the late 90’s. No want ads, no third-party introductions, just like-minded musicians with a shared passion.

They spent the first two years together writing songs and performing continuously in clubs throughout Ireland and Europe—developing into one of the most talked about bands on the Irish scene. Their first release “Correspondent,” landed on the charts with two Top Ten songs and garnered sales of over 20,000 copies sold.

In mid-1999, having built a loyal fan base in their native Ireland, STAND played a sold-out show to 1200 fans at Vicar Street in Dublin and departed for America shortly thereafter. This band from the outskirts of Dublin took New York City, literally, one stage at a time.

[They have] "more energy than a barrel of monkeys" raved Ken Gorka, owner of the legendary Bitter End (and the newish Crash Mansion,) when he first saw them play.

The band soon hit the college circuit playing 5 to 6 times a week to an increasingly fanatical audience. This website has received over 200,000 hits since its debut in January of 2003.

Between a rigorous and exhausting touring schedule, they recorded a batch of songs in various ad hoc spaces while sorting through production options. To whet the appetite of their audience, a single from one of their past recording was released.

Colm O'Hare of Hot Press declared the appropriately titled Sleeping On Our Feet "a great tune...the chugging drone of the dual guitars or the faintly apocalyptic vocals reminiscent of the great Psychedelic Furs in their prime."

STAND immediately thereafter went into exile with proven veteran producer/engineer David Seitz (Jeff Buckley, Shawn Colvin, John Wesley Harding, Dar Williams) at the renowned Clubhouse Studio in upstate New York to record the band latest album Transmissions, currently only available in America or www.standland.com

STAND will release TRANSMISSIONS in Ireland in the Spring '06.

STAND Available for Interviews and Radio Sessions.

 
 
 
 
On the heals of selling out New York's prestigious Bowery Ballroom not only once but TWICE!!, Dublin band STAND return to Ireland for a series of shows around the country including a headline at VICAR STREET in Dublin on July 16th. The current Album "IN A HAPPY PLACE" has been in wedged in the Top 10 Indie / Alternative charts in the USA since it's release in March. Now based in New York, this is a great opportunity to see one of Ireland's best exports back on home soil.

STAND formed on the streets and schoolyards of Dublin. No want ads, no third-party introductions. The band learned their first songs and spent the next two years rehearsing and performing continuously in clubs throughout Ireland and Europe. During this period, they began to compose and develop the deeply melodic songs that would grace their Pat Donne-produced 1999 independent debut album, "Correspondent". Two singles from that album appeared on Irish charts, one holding various Top 10 positions for two weeks in late 1999. Sales of 20,000 copies followed.
The live show, meanwhile, had developed into one of the most talked about on the Irish scene. "More energy than a barrel of monkeys" is how legendary New York venue operator Ken Gorka (Bitter End, Crash Mansion) describes this band onstage.

In mid-1999, having built a loyal fan base in Ireland, STAND played a sold-out show to 1200 fans at Vicar Street in Dublin and departed for America shortly thereafter.

This band from the outskirts of Dublin took New York City, literally, one stage at a time. One early audience member turned out to be a premier booking agent for the U.S. college market, and the band quickly found itself getting used to the right hand side of the road, winning over fans across the Northeastern and Southeastern United States. The group that played perhaps three times a month at home now found itself onstage five to six nights a week, playing to increasingly fanatic audiences. The webpage at standland.com has received 130,000 since inception in January of 2003.

In early 2003, between exhausting appearance commitments, the band recorded a batch of songs in various ad hoc spaces while sorting through production options. To whet the appetite of their audience, a single recording from the catalogue to come was released. Colm O'Hare of HotPress declared the appropriately titled Sleeping On Our Feet "a great tune...the chugging drone of the dual guitars or the faintly apocalyptic vocals reminiscent of the great Psychedelic Furs in their prime."

STAND immediately thereafter went into exile with proven veteran producer/engineer David Seitz (Jeff Buckley, Shawn Colvin, John Wesley Harding, Dar Williams) at the world class Clubhouse Studio in upstate New York and Shelter Island Sound in NYC. After completing two full production videos for targeted singles, the band spent the first months of 2004 touring their homeland while preparing to release this highly anticipated album in the United States.

  STAND "Sleeping on Our Feet" - New World Music (RMG-Chart) Released July 4th
Both live and on record, STAND, the Dublin four-piece now based out of New York, know exactly how to achieve what they want from every performance. With a guitar driven alternative rock sound, their two lead singers bounce off each other and work in tandem perfectly. Two completely different vocal styles blend together to make a wall of sound with beautifully melodic results. SEE
STAND PLAY WHELANS JULY 4TH / VICAR STREET JULY 19TH!

Track Details:

Sleeping on our feet:- This is a song written last year whilst in the Catskill Mountains, NY. We rented a house for two months to get out of the city to write new material. We were pissed off at the pace of NY and all the travelling. It's kind of a tongue in cheek look at American lifestyles, about how so many people are unaware of their situation and surroundings. There is so much more going on than just what's in the US.

 
 

Oldstar:- Again written in the Catskill sessions. A song about being jaded with showcases and record label jump hoops, when all they seem to do is rehash old material and try and milk the same fans for more money. This was one of the songs that didn't make the cut for the new album.

Overview (Live):- Originally appeared on the 'Intervals" EP. This is a live version recorded for Budweisers 'True Music' campaign, along with 11 other tracks due for release at the end of this month. It will be used in Bud promotional events and we will have to 'appear' and drink Budweiser and look cool, which may I say will be very easy!!!!! 'Overview' is about a guy in an unfortunate situation seeking devine rescue.
