History (2009 - present)[edit]

The Cast of Cheers were formed in 2009 in Dublin, Ireland, by lead vocalist Conor Adams and bassist John Higgins, who recruited Kevin Curran on drums and, after the recording of their début album, they asked Conor's brother, Neil Adams, to play guitar live. They released their first album Chariot in February 2010 on bandcamp.com for free. It received over 150,000 downloads and netted them a nomination at the Choice Music Awards.[2] Their second album, Family, was produced by Luke Smith, ex of Clor[3] and was released on 20 July 2012 through Schoolboy Error/Co-Operative Music, and debuted at number 37 on the Irish Album Charts.[4]

To date they have supported Blood Red Shoes, Howler, Bloc Party, Alt-J, Two Door Cinema Club and Bombay Bicycle Club.[5]
