The Narrowbacks
The Narrowbacks
"With the release of the stellar 'Arrogance and Ignorance', the lads have cleared a pathway over 12 songs and 42 glorious minutes for top billing and prove ready for their close-up." - Mike Farragher, Irish Voice


"Pooling their talents, The Narrowbacks take elements of in-your-face 90s rock bands and develop an uncommon old-school/modern Irish folk-rock jig for bittersweet drinking, ranting, and reminiscing." - Elmore Magazine


The 6 piece Irish American Folk Rock group is touring in support of their critically acclaimed sophomore effort, "Arrogance & Ignorance" with dates up and down the North east including a slot on Shamrockfest in DC with Dropkick Murphys and House of Pain and headlining Bowery Ballroom on Saint Patrick's Day. The new album is available at all live shows and on iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby.
