Following The Signs Alt-Metal / Co. Cork

Editor Notes:

One of Cork City’s newest additions to the Irish Metal Scene. The band first emerged in 2017 with their debut Self-Titled EP, which caught the ear of TOO LOUD Records who signed the band to release their upcoming second EP, scheduled to be recorded with Ricky Fankaz Dagaat Titans LAB Recording Studio (Ferrara, Italy).


FOLLOWING THE SIGNS are a metal band coming out of Cork City, Ireland. The band has been together since Summer 2017 and was founded by front man Dan Hayes. They released their first self-titled “FOLLOWING THE SIGNS” EP in in 2017 which consisted of four tracks with heavy distorted guitars and heavy drum beats with a raw voice the band quickly. This grabbed the attention of the local metal scene and was quick to get the name around  being featured on Irish Metal Archive, Burning Metal Ireland, Cranium Titanium Metal Radio Show and Alt Night Radio, with their single ‘To Light A Fire’ and also getting a slot on the URBAN ASSAULT FEST.

The band currently consists of Danny Hayes (vocals), Rory Taylor (Bass), Noel Crowley (guitar), Dave Moynihan (Guitar) and Jack McCarthy (drums) and hopes to strive with their high ambitions and heavy music. The band wishes only to grow as time goes on and they don’t show any signs of stopping… FOLLOWING THE SIGNS believe they can amount to great things.
