About The Spikes

...Following their polished summer '06 debut 'Monster', The Spikes followed up with the critically acclaimed, 'In Love No More'. They now embark on their most daring release to date with 'Ninja Girlfriend'.

Described by the Irish Times as 'energetic, stylish', The Spikes unleashed their quality sound on the Dublin music scene little over a year ago, the stage show that has been turning heads ever since is unmatched amongst their peers and has not gone unnoticed in industry circles.

From bizarre beginnings in New Zealand in 2004 The Spikes have successfully set about re-establishing the niche for the rock 'n' roll four-piece. They boast diverse accomplishments among their ranks: Peter Redmond has played brass at international competition level, Gareth Lewis has toured and recorded in Britain and New Zealand, Aaron Mulhall ('best drummer', Emergenza Ireland 2006) brings a mesmerising pulse to the group while front man Tom Dunne delivers not only the outfit's drive but 'a vocal performance that puts one in mind of a stripped-down The Zutons, with more than a hint of Joy Division.' - Hotpress

'Monster' was a hugely positive debut for The Spikes, securing a placing in the Irish Singles Chart on its release and making a mark for independent Irish artists. 'In Love No More' saw The Spikes add to their rapidly growing fan base and maintain their reputation for 'a killer melody' and 'thrillingly sleazy...production' - Metro. Ninja Girlfriend, the band's latest release, is more evidence of the their diverse range, and promises continued success for The Spikes in 2007. If you haven't caught the show yet you need to witness one of the Spikes' forthcoming performances - as The Irish Times have noted, 'The the rest how it's done'!
