Metallic hardcore quartet BAILER have released a live video, capturing their entire show at Knockanstockan Music & Arts Festival in Wicklow, Ireland on 29th July 2018. The independent festival welcomes Irish bands of all genres, and as the only hardcore band on the line-up BAILER headlined the second stage.
“I’ve never felt more at home than I did on that stage,” explains vocalist Alex O’Leary.“Everything that was needed for a perfect BAILER show was present, all smiles and relived frustration on people’s faces. Just pure fun. The video highlights our hunger right now to bring what you see here to a stage near you.”
The footage sees the band deliver a chaotic and ferocious set, giving fans a taste of what to expect from their remaining shows in 2018, which includes a UK headline tour at the end of November.

Earlier this year BAILER released their self-titled EP via Distro-y Records. Following on from 2017’s PTSD and 2016’s Shaped By The Landscape, BAILER is an ambitious collection of tracks that showcase a band who have truly discovered their sound.
Returning to work with Murdock’s Aidan Cunningham, BAILER is relentless from the get-go as the merciless ‘Lying For A Living’ brings the listener up to speed in a riotous fashion, while the likes of ‘Tuesday Blues’ and ‘Death Is A Reminder’ take a filthier route, reminiscent of Cancer Bats.
With a small discography the four-piece have impressively garnered attention from Metal Hammer, Kerrang! Radio presenter Alex Baker, Metal Injection and Heavy Blog Is Heavy, an achievement that is no mean feat for a band so early into their career. BAILER have spent their short time as a band building up a strong reputation in their home ground, having played shows alongside Norma Jean, Sick Of It All, Employed To Serve, Palm Reader, HECK, God Mother, Coilguns, Murdock and more.
