W.A.L.K.E.R and Jailbirds announce double headline show for Grand Social.


Dublin based rock band W.A.L.K.E.R. was formed in January 2017 by Kelan Hughes, lead guitar, and Glen Walker, lead vocals & guitar. Soon the line up was complete with the addition of Ali Cruz, drums, and Peter Jordan, bass.

The band released their first single "Time To Party" in June 2017, mixed by producer Michael Wagener who has worked with bands such as Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Skid Row and many more.

The track reached number 2 in the Irish rock charts and propelled the band back into the studio to record an EP.

Their debut Ep was also  mixed by Michael Wagener giving the songs a polished 80s production while still capturing the energy that is present in their live shows.

The band recently signed a publishing deal with "The Evolving Music Company" setting them up for a bright future.


Jailbirds are an Australian/Irish hard rock band based in Dublin, Ireland.

The band is composed of; Axel McDonald on lead vocals and lead guitar, his brother Jay McDonald on drums, both of whom originate from Sydney, Australia. Completing the raw and powerhouse sound of Jailbirds are Irish rhythm guitarist Ed Orr and bass player Jamie Trimble.

The band produce a unique, dynamic and explosive sound defining a new generation of hard rock thanks to a healthy appetite of Australian powerhouse rock bands such as AC/DC, Airbourne, Rose Tattoo and legendary Irish rockers, Thin Lizzy.

Following the release of their 2016 debut EP “BREAK THE SILENCE” which saw the band gain instant airplay as well as features in esteemed publications such as “Classic Rock Magazine”, the band were signed by Golden Robot Records (Dizzy Reed, Kings X, Rose Tattoo)  in August 2018 and are currently working on their debut studio album, which is set for release by Spring 2019.

Having shared stages with Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown, The Answer and Anvil, Jailbirds will be gearing up for a multitude of live dates which will be announced in early 2019. In the meantime, the guys will continue to spread the hard rock n’ roll gospel far and wide.
