Dublin four-piece Lankum (brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch, Cormac MacDiarmada and Radie Peat) have gained worldwide acclaim for their first three albums and captivating, euphoric live performances. 

Their fourth album “False Lankum” has been universally heralded, reaching no.2 in the Official Irish Album Charts on release, receiving a Mercury Prize nomination and significantly eclipsing the success of their previous album, the Choice Award winning, “The Livelong Day”. 

The record heralds a new stage in the metamorphosis of the band into a modern day powerhouse, drawing on traditional and primitive methods to create bold and singular music that transcends its folk roots: an entrancing, widescreen sound incorporating experimental overtones and rumbling drones wedded with classic songwriting, close vocal harmonies and timeless narratives. 

Their live show has evolved into a deeply moving collective experience, with the band performing together as though they are a single lung: sounds expand and collapse from indistinguishable mouths, lungs, fingers, keys and feet, while a wall of amp stacks push the intensity of the show to new levels.
