Acknowledged as one of Ireland’s favourite music acts, The Frames released their 1st album Another Love Song in 1992. For over 10 years they bounced through various record deals and line-ups releasing 2 albums Fitzcarraldo & Dance The Devil along the way. Shaking free of outside influences, they released For The Birds on their own Plateau label in March 2001.
Amidst constant touring the band released their live opus Set List in May 2003 to a début in the Irish Album Charts at No 1. Continuing their relentless global touring schedule, they signed an international record deal with Anti/Epitaph and released their 5th studio album Burn The Maps in September 2004. It went straight to No 1 in Ireland.
In 2002 The Frames played a legendary gig at Galway International Arts Festival. In September 2006 they released their 6th studio album The Cost on Plateau in Ireland where it went straight into the album charts at No 2.
The Frames reconvened for their 20 & 25th year anniversaries with a string of sold out shows worldwide. 2020 marked the 30th year of musical collaboration and friendship.
Galway International Arts Festival and Róisín Dubh are delighted to welcome them to the Heineken® Big Top on 23rd July.
