Empathy are an alternative rock band, citing bands like Placebo and Interpol as their influences. They are known for their ability to blend delicate and distorted guitar tones and a vocal style similar to Ian McCulloch. They originated in 2007 but it took them two years to find the unique voice, they now possess. After years of practice and perfecting their outfit, they are back at it in 2017 and working harder than ever before on the Dublin circuit. Whether you’re going to take a listen online or check out their latest gig, they should be part of your new music playlist.

They played at the Rose of Tralee international festival and are said to be amazing to hear live, so keep an eye out on our gig guides. The band has also supported mainstage acts like “The Coronas”.
