Irish rock band The Midnight Preachers release their new single titled “Summertime” to all digital outlets today. The song was produced by produced & mixed by the band’s Eoghan MacSheain in Wildwater Studios & mastered by Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal.
“Summertime is a throwback to the mid-90s – summery vibes and nostalgia” says The Midnight Preachers.
Founded by Eoghan MacSheain in the north-west of Ireland in late 2017, The Midnight Preachers blasted onto the Irish music scene with a distinctive rock sound. Featuring rich vocal harmonies, Fender Rhodes and classic rock style riffs, their ﬁrst single “California” debuted at #2 on iTunes in Ireland, with the follow up single “Pusher Woman” receiving critical acclaim in publications such as Classic Rock Magazine in August 2020.
Following an Irish tour which culminated in a headline show with legendary guitar player Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (solo artist / ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist), The Midnight Preachers returned to the studio, releasing their critically acclaimed EP Desert Hymns in December 2020. Their much-anticipated debut album Soul Food is scheduled for release in late 2021.
