Brain Donation are a 3-piece alt-rock outfit from Dublin. You may recognise some of the members from various Dublin projects over the last few years.
The band consists of Dan McKenna (Guitar and Vocals), Alan Stapleton (Bass and Vocal), and Ollie Jordan Kelly (Drums).
The band are heavily influenced by the sounds of New Wave and Grunge, their music is diverse in both energy and subject matter.
We particularly enjoyed this line from their bio: "The themes of their music careen through everyday life to horror allegory and a general distaste for the press elite of professional wrestling. Their lyrics can be dramatic, self-deprecating and often ridiculous."
March 2018 will see the release of their second EP, which was recorded and mixed at Hellfire Studios in Dublin by Ivan Jackman (Luka Bloom, New Secret Weapon, Solar Bears) & Mastered by Barry Grint at Alchemy Mastering (REM, Wolf Alice, Radiohead).

The band will play The Underground for their EP Launch on the 23rd of March - you can join the FB event here.
