In Their Thousands are an alternative rock band from Donegal. They use big vocal harmonies and diverse arrangements, the songs span a wide array of genres. They have released a four part EP project to date which culminated in a sold out show at An Grianán Theatre in December 2013. With an eye for doing things differently, the band have organised gigs in one-off venues they created to be performed in once. While they have not created An Grianán Theatre for one night only, they will bring their spontaneous energy and the ability to create memorable moments to the stage on December 27th.
2012 the band won the Hotpress/2FM/Guinness competition for unsigned Irish acts. This success gave the group a national profile and helped see them tour and play at a host of festivals both in Ireland and the UK . The band reached the Irish Chart for the first time in July 2013 at no. 21 with their debut single ‘Tear It All Apart’. In 2014 this momentum continued with In Their Thousands embarking on a Tour spanning Ireland, the UK, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany. This was followed by many appearances on the summer festival circuit including Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions, Spirit of Folk, Other Voices Music Trail and headline performances at Swell Festival and Dunfanaghy Jazz and Blues in Donegal.
“In Their Thousands – This is a band with huge international potential. They are superb musicians making a truly original and epic noise.” – Niall Stokes, Hot Press Magazine
