New York, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2006
New York rockers, Audio Fiction are just back from their sold out tour of Ireland. Hot Press Magazine (Ireland's version of Rolling Stone) named the band as a Hot Pick for 2006 and a band to watch in their current edition.
“The Irish people loved the band's live act” says singer, Mimi Ferraro. In fact the demand was so good they ended up adding an extra show. “Irish audiences generally respond favorably to touring bands. But we were very surprised that so many people turned out to see us play. I’m sure Myspace helped a lot as did the fact that myself and Ferg, our guitarist, are from Ireland” added Mark O’Toole, the band’s drummer. “You know you’re onto something when you’re asked to sign a woman’s chest after a gig” laughs Ferg.
Audio Fiction brought over a limited CD release called “Kite High” which was sold out on the tour. The band plays one more gig this Sat 21st at Sin-e in New York and then heads back into the studio to work on it’s debut album due for release later this year.
Other highlights on the band:
1. The release of their EP "Songs in The Key of Orange Alert" last year caused a stir at the Republican National Convention here in NYC. One of the songs, Tick Tock, is an anti Bush anti war song. The band received a lot of national press over the song and EP title.
2. One of the New York Metropolitan Opera violinists, Kat Fong, has recently joined the band (while still playing at the Met). Once again the band received national press. She headed straight from the stage of Carnegie Hall on Jan 8th to catch a flight to Ireland for the tour.
3. Their Irish drummer gives a memorable performance in HBO's Taxicab Confessions - New York, NY. The show is hugely popular in America and that particular episode continuously repeats every few months. CH4 has bought the show and it will air sometime in Britain and Ireland in 2006.
4. Last year, the band has been mentioned in the New York Post’s Page Six and The New York Daily News’ Rush & Molloy gossip columns multiple times.
