Iron & Wine
Sam Beam, better known as Iron & Wine, will bring the evocative, carefully crafted lyricism of new release Beast Epic to Ballinlough this June. Beam’s eighth studio album, returns to the basics that originally drew audiences to the distinct sound of Iron & Wine. Inspired primarily by the themes of time and ageing which Beam states that he is fascinated by the way “time asserts itself on our bodies and our hearts.” Beast Epic is a stripped back production that features all the quality hallmarks that Beam is lauded for. Iron & Wine’s cinematic overtures have featured heavily on television through the years, including Grey’s Anatomy, House M.D., Twilight & Misfits amongst others.
“On Beast Epic, Iron & Wine has rediscovered the power and beauty in scaling back when it serves the song, and the result is Beam’s most dynamic and convincing record in years” – The Rolling Stones
“Whatever sonic paths his next record treads, Beam has proven, to his fans’ great relief, that he’ll always know the way back home.” – Consequences of Sound
