The Gakk - Side Of The Road
"On a journey, destination unknown....."
The Gakk are the Irish 5 piece from Dundalk who play melodic street punk and occasionally ska & reggae and who first featured on here 18 months ago with a song called Off The Fags & Booze : http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-gakk-off-fags-booze-for-lent.html
They're back today as they've just unleashed a single that's blazing a trail for their upcoming new album. The album is out later this week and is titled Take A Look Around... I'm confident it'll be a certifiable winner. They'll be launching it on Friday (June 29th) with one of their trademark energetic gigs, it's at The Stag's Head, Linenhall Street, Dundalk and it's free entry (making me sad I'm nowhere near Dundalk). More details of that gig, plus the one in Dublin on Sunday 1st July and their return to the Rebellion Festival in August, here : https://www.facebook.com/thegakk/
The single is name your price on Bandcamp : https://thegakk.bandcamp.com/
This is a topical song about the flood of refugees trying desperately to escape their war torn countries only to receive a less than warm welcome from certain supposedly civilised nations "who's gonna care for the warchild when nations give up hope?" It's titled Side Of The Road....
