News from Mickey…
Mickey Joe here… just to say hello and thanks for all your support with the most recent release of “Bring it On! Bring it On!” by The SUBZTITUTES (AKA Paul Brady and yours truly).
“Bring it On! Bring it On!” is something that came out of nothing really. Just a little conversation and a few lines in an email… and the rest is history. It’s available on iTunes to download.
And well done to Trap, Shay, and the rest of the Irish squad for giving us something to believe in again!
Following on from that, I’m pleased to announce tour dates/venues for USA Summer Tour starting at the end of this month. We start in Boston, as we promised. Some of you will remember we were forced to cancel the February gig there due to airport closure in Chicago, because of a storm that never did arrive. Which made it all the worse!!! Anyhow, with the help of the good Lord we will be there on the 27th of this month… all tour dates below.
I will be gigging in and around Ireland after I get back from The States for the rest of the summer. More IMPORTANTLY, we’ll release the NEW ALBUM SEPT 14TH “Forward to Reality”, here in Ireland with an extensive tour of the country to support the release. Coincidently that’s also my birthday…. jeez where did those 29 years go???!
And coming soon… your chance to pre-order the album on the website: www.mickeyhartemusic.com . Check back shortly!
