Pranks are a two piece grunge rock band based in Dublin. Friends since primary school, Micheal Sheil (Guitar and vocals)and Gearoid Connaughton (Drums) have a wealth of musical experience.
For the last ten years, the two have been honing their separate skills. Micheal, producer and general guitar wizard with Roscommon based ‘We Town Criers’, and Geariod as drummer with ‘Daisy Chopper’, who have performed alongside rock heavyweights like Queens of the Stone Age and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
In 2014, their love of big, fuzzy, noisy riffs brought them together to create Pranks…a minimalist supergroup.
Pranks debut self titled EP was released in July 2015
“They sound like Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield letting loose on a Queens Of The Stone Age track. It’s old school stuff done well.” –Nialler9’s New Band of the Week, The Irish Times
“Pranks E.P. is pure post-grunge music. Filled with kinetic riff based energy and steeped in the bare-boned rock inflections of the genre, the record plunges straight into the murky depths of Pranks sound with total commitment.” – Stephen White, thelastmixedtape.com
