The Gloaming’s second album is due later this month, ahead of the band’s run of five sold-out shows at Dublin’s National Concert Hall. The opening track on the album is “The Pilgrim’s Song”, which brings together two Seán Ó Ríordáin poems namely A Sheanfhilí, Múinídh Dom Glao and Oilithreacht Fám Anam, and here’s a video of the band performing the track during recording sessions in Real World Studios last December. Watch out for a forthcoming special report and interview in the paper from the recording sessions for the album.
