Concerto for Constantine is an unsigned Irish indie rock band formed in August 2007. The band consists of former JJ72 frontman Mark Greaney (vocals, guitar), former Turn and Idlewild bassist Gavin Fox (bass) and former The Frames and Bell X1 drummer Paul 'Binzer' Brennan (drums).

Formation[edit]

In the summer of 2007, Mark and Gavin found themselves simultaneously no longer in a band. After approaching Binzer, who the band themselves describe as "the Irish Jimmy Chamberpot".,[1] a rehearsal took place in August 2007 and the band was formed. The name of the band was initially created by Gavin looking through some songs on iTunes. He selected the name 'Concerto' and Mark completed it using a name from a dream.[2]

Notable performances[edit]

Concerto for Constantine played throughout Ireland, during November 2007, on the 11 date 2fm 2moro 2our. The band supported The Smashing Pumpkins in Dublin and in Belfast on February 9-10. They played their very first headlining show in Fibber Magees on February 22, 2008. The band were due to play two dates in London at the end of March.

Concerto for Constantine opened the Green Room at Oxegen 2008 on July 12, performing before Delays and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.[3]

Future releases[edit]

Concerto for Constantine recorded the song "Minsk" and are releasing it as a single with a video.[4] It has since appeared as a free download online.[citation needed] The band also plan to make an album.[4]
