Imelda May Returns with 'Tribal'
Ireland’s reigning queen of rockabilly, the truly unique Imelda May, is back with a brand new album entitled Tribal, and a highly-anticipated UK Tour.
Since the release of her raucous debut Love Tattoo in 2009, Imelda has been one of the most strikingly original talents in the music arena, taking her infectious blend of rockabilly, jazz, blues and torch songs from the back rooms of Dublin pubs to the biggest festivals in the world.
Then came the double gold album Mayhem in 2010, which she took on the road, bringing some good old-fashioned rock’n’roll spirit to audiences worldwide. With her live shows widely acclaimed, she has picked up fans as diverse as Jools Holland, Jeff Beck and Bono who dueted with her at two sold out 02 shows in Dublin 2011.
Far from mellowing with motherhood, Imelda sizzles more than ever with her leather-clad attitude, returning with a brand new album of hard-edged anthems. Imelda is pinning her colours to the mast with music which celebrates the great rock’n’roll sub-culture and her own ‘Tribal’ allegiances.
In support of the upcoming album and in celebration of her roots, Imelda is also performing at London's Roundhouse Theatre on St Patrick's Day (March 17) with full UK Autumn Tour to be announced.
