Stanton's Grave is four guys from Cork who like to play punk rock.
Well... Tony likes to play punk rock, Eoin likes to play hardcore crust, Senior likes to play metal and Dan likes to play bass!
We stick all that in a blender and see what comes out...
“Stanton’s Grave open the first night of proceedings, and their rowdy, SLF-inflected punk riles up the crowd excellently, and barring some technical probs, their set goes down well, their pop tendencies giving way to a few new tunes that show hints of a heavier new direction, entrenched in alt-rock in some spots, in others a bit more technical. Intriguing and a perfect beginning to proceedings.”
