The Walls embark on new tour with their virtual band

Whether it was with the Stunning or in their current guise, brothers Joe and Steve Wall have penned an impressive list of Irish radio anthems

From 'Brewing up a Storm' and 'Romeo's on Fire', to 'the Bright and Shining Sun' and 'Bone Deep', the talent of the Brothers Wall can't be denied.

The pair will release their third album as The Walls, called Stop The Lights later this year, and will be hitting the road this summer to test new material and play some old favourites. In recent times the band have began to showcase a new audio-visual show which features the pair joined on stage by a cast of virtual band members who they chat to and perform with. The tour this summer will consist of either the virtual show, acoustic sets or full band shows depending on the venue.

If you can't catch them for one of their summer dates, the first single from the new album 'Carrying the Fire' and the album's title track 'Stop The Lights' are available from www.thewalls.ie.

The Walls play the following shows this summer:

SAT JUNE 5 - LEIXLIP FESTIVAL (FULL BAND SHOW)

THURS JUNE 10 - THE OLIVE GROVE, ATHLONE (ACOUSTIC)

FRI JUNE 11 - THE THATCH, RAHAN, CO. OFFALY (TWO MAN/virtual SHOW)
