New album Arms out now

✮✮✮✮  " another marvelous piece of work from a band that continues to gently, respectfully startle.”  - IRISH TIMES

9/10    “This is a great record”  - HOT PRESS

New single “Fake Memory”

Bell X1 have released their new album Arms, out now. “Fake Memory” is the third song to come from the album.

Recorded in Dublin and Donegal, this is their 7th studio album and the follow up to 2013’s much acclaimed ‘Chop Chop,’ which was their third Number 1, and their fourth consecutive album to be nominated for a Choice Music Prize.

Arms is a nine-song collection radiating with shabby grace and soft-focus elegance, but there’s also a bruised, bittersweet, romantic mood throughout. Melancholic and lovelorn in places but also spirited, determined and optimistic which speaks volumes about how the band has grown sonically over their storied career. 

“As the world feels like it’s becoming a harsher place (maybe there’s just more damn noise?), we seek out the comfort of the familiar and familial…arms.”  Paul Noonan

ARMS was produced by the band and recorded by Tommy McLoughlin, David Geraghty, Glenn Keating  & Ross Dowling at Attica Audio, The Numbers Station & The BallOfSound. Mixed by Peter Katis at Tarquin Studios, except “Out of Love” - mixed by Ross Dowling

The band have been busy this summer with headline shows at the Iveagh Gardens, Galway Arts Festival and Indiependence and a main stage performance at Electric Picnic.  Australian dates for later in the year also announced.

Glen Keating has also been playing live with the band this year taking command of the keys, whilst Rory Doyle (Hozier) is the band’s live drummer.
