Interview with Midnight Preachers
Sofa King Cool caught up with
and we discussed the new single “Pusher Woman” The upcoming Album, working with Ron Bumblefoot Thal, Quarantine in Ireland, and what is next for the band
Irish rock band The Midnight Preachers released their new single titled “Pusher Woman” to all digital outlets via The Label Group/INgrooves. The band also released the official music video for the single that was drawn by the band’s very own Emer McLaughlin on her iPad.
“Pusher Woman” was written by Eoghan MacSheain & Emer McLaughlin, produced by John Henry and mixed/mastered by Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Sons Of Apollo, Asia, Guns N Roses).
Formed in the north-west of Ireland in late 2017, The Midnight Preachers blasted onto the Irish music scene with a distinctive hard rock sound. Avoiding the modern trappings of overexposure on social media, the band’s approach is to leave more to the imagination of the listener, and to make the music their priority. Featuring rich vocal harmonies, Fender Rhodes piano and classic rock style riffs, their ﬁrst single “California” debuted at #2 on iTunes in Ireland, on New Years Day 2018.
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, recording their upcoming debut EP Desert Hymns.
THE MIDNIGHT PREACHERS IS:
Eoghan MacSheain – Singer / Guitarist / Pianist & Producer
Taking inﬂuence from the wild on-stage presence of Rory Gallagher, Eoghan provides an energetic and ‘out there’ performance. As a guitar player, his hard rock sensibilities have led to him touring and performing with Bobby Kimball (Toto), Chris Slade (AC/DC), and signing endorsement deals with DiMarzio Electronics, Vigier Guitars, AMT Electronics and Breedlove Guitars.
Emer McLaughlin – Singer / Bassist
Emer’s voice has been compared to Stevie Nicks, Kim Carnes and Norah Jones, and her bass playing to that of Phil Lynott. With a blues infused alto range, she sings lead, as well as backing vocals, and co-writes all of the band’s material.
