The set will premiere via YouTube (tune-in link HERE) and feature new songs from the band’s soon-to-be-announced forthcoming sophomore album in addition to previously released material.

Just Mustard are vocalist Katie Ball, guitarists David Noonan (also backing vocals) and Mete Kalyon, bassist Rob Clarke, and drummer Shane Maguire. Their heady blend of noise, trip-hop, and electronic-influenced music has helped them build a reputation as one of Ireland’s most thrilling new bands. Their 2018 debut ‘Wednesday’ earned acclaim at home and abroad – most notably capturing a Choice Music Prize nomination for Irish Album of the Year.
The band supported Fontaines DC on their sold-out 2019 UK tour and emerged as a ‘band of the weekend’ at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival – The Independent (“worth waiting for”), Dork (“unforgettable”), DIY (“a monstrous wall of sound”), Gigwise (“cinematic at every turn”), Loud And Quiet (“distinctly fixating and eerie”). They were a highlight of Primavera in 2019, with NME calling them one of the “12 best acts” of the festival, and Robert Smith also handpicked that same year to support The Cure at Dublin’s Malahide Castle.
