A digital single “Far Away” taken from the upcoming CD/LP/DOWNLOAD album “A Sign Of The Times” from Sir Reg.
The album will be out on Heptown Records October 21, 2011.
Far Away is about a young Irish soldier fighting in World War 1 for the British army, under the belief that his efforts will help his native Ireland achieve freedom from British rule. The song is a glimpse through this lad’s eyes about the reality and horror of war and how it’s definitely nothing glamorous like the posters sell.
Following on from their self titled debut album SIR REG, which topped many of the best of 2010 lists in the genre. They take it one step further with a work that sums up what it’s like to live in this chaotic and unpredictable world of ours.
With songs sung by an Irishman and backed by fantastic Swedish musicians, Dubliner Brendan Sheehy and his companions certainly know how to challenge the listener’s ear.
SIR REG is for lovers of Flogging Molly, The Pogues, The Men They Couldn’t Hang, The Dubliners, Dropkick Murphys and others in the folk/celtic/rock/punk style.
