THE ADDICTION Are A Band Who Have A Purpose In Todays Music Scene. They Offer Relief From Other Forms Of Plastic Music And (In A Nutshell) Invented ... Constructed....Manufactured Bands. They Can Relax You Into A Mindset Where You Can Enjoy Some Real Music. They Are 5 Friends Who Discovered A Common Love For Music Even Though The Common Love Was Divided Into Different Genres. Rock,Metal, Jazz, Blues, Indie, Rap, Drum And Bass Are To Name But A Few. Incorporating These Tastes Into Their Songs Results In An Astonishing Mix And Brilliant Display Of Talent (Even If They Do Say So Themselves!) Basically....Come See THE ADDICTION And Decide For Yourself! We Thinks You Wont Be Sorry!

" We Will Do For Music What Cream Eggs Did For Easter....And Did That Do Well??? Yes!!! Yes It Did!!"- Dave O'Reilly [Drums]

How The Addiction Happened

Every Since The Tender Age Of 13/14 Michael, Eoin And Andrew Have Been In Bands Together. None Of Them Sucessful, But They Entered In A Few Competitions. In 2003 They Entered The Shockwaves Unsigned Band Comp, After Just 3 Weeks Of Being A Band !!!! Sadly They Didn't Get Far But The Judges Said This

"For A Band Who Are Only Together 3 Weeks, They Put In A Spectacular Demo Performance, If They Keep Developing At The Same Rate They Have Been, They Will Be Awesome In A Years Time. They Definatly Have A Lot Going For Them And Are Ones To Watch For Next Year, And The Future. We Would Love To See Them Back Next Year." Sadly The Band Broke Up 2 Weeks Later Due To Differences But Another Band Formed From The Ashes, Nothing Great Came Out Of That. While In Transition Year, On A Danish Exchange, A Showcase Of Irish Talent Was To Be Exibitioned To Polish, Czeck And Danish Audiances. The Lads At The Time Had No Idea That A Guy Called Dave In Their Class, Played The Drums. Before They Knew It They Were On A Stage Together Playing "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" And "Whiskey In The Jar" To A Massive Crowd With Thge Whole Transition Year Class Singing (You Try Fittin 24 People On A Tiny Stage!). After Denmark Nothing Happened For A While. Just A Few Quite Jamming Sessions. Then In 2005 At The Start Of 6th Year They Decided To Rock The Place Up A Lil' Because It Was There Last Year. The Improvement During Practice Was Increadbly Noticeable. The Gig Went Ridicusly Well And The Guys Talked And Decided They Were Going To Keep It Up (Cos They Were So Good Like!!) And They Did!

Since Then ::THEADDICTION:: Have Played With Bands Such As Local Limerick Heros IdleHands, Up And Coming Limerick Bands SKB, The Void, Verfield And Pants Are Bad, And Also Up And Coming Irish Band The Spikes

In August ::THEADDICTION:: Recorded Their Debeut EP/Demo " Call It What You Want " With Owen Lewis [BREAKLINEPRODUCTIONS]
