Marcata is the debut offering from Irish rock trio The Minutes. After a hectic 2011 which saw the band play over 100 shows including a critically acclaimed performance at Texas SXSWS festival last summer and support slots for Supergrass and The Von Bondies, cementing their already stellar reputation as a must-see live band.

Marcata was recorded in upstate New York in late 2009 with producer Kevin McMahon. It was released in their native Ireland in May 2010 to rave reviews and saw the band perform a string of successful TV performances including Other Voices on RTE Two and The Saturday Night Show.

The powerhouse of adrenalin-charged rock ‘n’ roll for which The Minutes have become known is perfectly showcased on their debut. A UK tour is scheduled to follow with dates in Manchester, Glasgow, Brighton and Birmingham throughout February and March.

‘Heartbreaker’ is a sample of what to expect, and is due for release on February 13th:
The Minutes – Heartbreaker by The Minutes

Marcata is out on 30th January on Model Citizen
