TEN years since the release of seminal album We Are The Way Forward and six years since going their separate ways, Limerick rockers Giveamanakick will perform on a local stage for just the second time since 2009.

The duo - Steve Ryan and Keith Lawler - have reunited for a series of one off shows to mark the tenth anniversary of the release of the album, the second of three critically acclaimed albums released in a fertile seven year period that preceded their amicable split.

The album was noted for its swashbuckling assault on the senses - in the very best of ways - and garnered a cult status. It will be re-released on Limerick label Out On A Limb to mark the occasion.

The two-piece - bone-fide members of Limerick’s rock royalty, famed for their wall of sound style and frenetic pace - have played just once, at tenth birthday for OOAL, and will take to the Dolan’s Warehouse stage this Saturday night for a much anticipated show.
