Don't Shoot! Short Info

Don’t Shoot are an exciting 5 piece indie / alternative rock band from Northern Ireland, based in Glasgow. The members are Jonny Kirwan (Vocals & guitar), Anna Doody (Synth & Vocals), Fearghal McMahon (Guitar), Corrie Mc Cusker (Bass) and Emmett Cleary (Drums).

Formed in 2013 they released their debut EP 'Please'. The band gained experience through the recording process and gigging throughout Ireland in which they found a sound which was unique to them, this came in the form of their 2014 release the 'Wondered' EP.

"This EP should come with a warning, one listen to this and you'll be hooked" - Michael Chapman - Chordblossom

They continued their run of good form by landing support slots with big NI acts such as More Than Conquerors and Gascan Ruckus.

Don't Shoot entered Glasgow's 'Soundwave Music Competition' and after storming through the heats, they played the final at Glasgow's O2 ABC on the 10th of January 2015 and were announced winners on the night. In April 2015 Don't Shoot moved to Glasgow and signed with Leeds based music label Broken Road Records. They re-released the Wonderkid EP in may through Broken Road Records.

“For a band who are both relatively new and irritatingly young, it’s impressive this track (Panic) is very much the finished product. Catchy, welcoming and flawlessly presented, they’re ready for a big step forward.”- BBC Across The Line

December 4th 2015 sees Don't Shoot releasing their 3rd EP 'That's The Truth Even If It Never Happened' through Broken Road Records.

''That's The The Truth Even If It Never Happened is a landmark for the band ... It is the sound of generosity and commitment and one that does them proud'' 4/5 - Ian D Hall - Liverpool Sound And Vision

"An EP filled with exciting, highly addictive, beautifully composed songs that will surely launch Don’t Shoot even further into the public eye, and make some tsunami sized waves on the local music scene" - Gigging NI
