The Dubliners were barely known outside of hip indie circles when in 2010 they decided to give their Chariot debut away on Bandcamp. The album promptly went viral with tens of thousands of people from all over the world discovering their post-punk with a pop twist wares. Currently based in London where they’re causing a major stir, The Cast Of Cheers are gearing up for the release of their second studio opus, which is trailed by new single, ‘Family’.
