About Remma

Formed in Cork 2003.

REMMA were signed by Morrissey to ATTACK (his signature label within Sanctuary Records) which saw their debut EP 'Worry Young' released in the US & Europe to critical acclaim and followed with Morrissey supports at London's Earls Court Arena & Dublin's Point Depot.

REMMA's debut release which has been hailed as "Passionate, Windswept" The Guardian, "A Stormer" NME & "Epic Melodic Rock" HMV.Com received extensive airplay in the US & Europe

As the band's career was beginning to take flight and with plans underway for a US & European promotional tour REMMA were dealt a devastating blow when lead singer Shane was struck down with a rare virus which destroyed his kidneys and which was to see him on dialysis and awaiting transplant for the following 3 years.

This was a very low point for the band but still they managed to keep on writing and recording new material and playing the occasional gig but serious touring or gigging commitments had to be placed temporarily on hold. In late 2007 Shane finally underwent a successful kidney transplant and rapidly returned to full health.

The recording of the band's debut album which is produced by Noel Hogan (The Cranberries, Mono Band & Arkitekt) is already underway with an EP due for release in late October.
