News: Fast rising Rock & Roll / Post-Punk / Indie trio, The Molotovs to play Irish debut gig January 6th and a string of UK headline and support slots in February

Rock & Roll / Post-Punk / Indie trio The Molotovs make their Irish debut at The Grand Social Dublin on Friday 6th January with local rock band Tung In Cheek playing proud support.

With almost 200 London gigs under their belt since forming in July 2020, along with support slots with The Libertines, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Blondie’s Clem Burke, The Molotovs join The Vapors on their UK tour early 2023.  There is no stopping them.

Songwriter and guitarist Mathew Cartlidge performs with an unbelievable swagger for any frontman – yet alone a young one – if you thinking Wilko meets young Weller then you’re in the ballpark. Bassist and backing vocalist Issey Carts bops and struts in pure rock-chick, Blondiesque style whilst Ice Dob on drums is the powerhouse driving the beat home with a ferocity Moon would undoubtedly smile down upon. Together these three explode in an attitude that keeps music exciting and rocking. They are the band to keep an eye on.

Merging cool, iconic classics with sharp, punchy originals, The Molotovs leave nothing in the dressing room and this is another gig that won’t fail to impress.

Described by Pete Doherty as “fucking ace!” after they ended 2021 on a high supporting The Libertines on their Giddy Up A Ding-Dong tour, The Molotovs certainly appear to be on the rock radar; crowd spotted and name checked by Billie-Joe Armstrong in front of 90,000 people at London Stadium in summer 2022 and looking forward to joining The Vapors on their 2023 UK tour.
