Rory Friers and Niall Kennedy have composed the music for the upcoming horror thriller ‘The Cured’.
Six years after an aggressive virus has spread through Europe, transforming the infected into zombie-like monsters, the great hope of a cure is found. The cure, which has a 75% success rate, restores the infected to full physical health. Although the cured remember everything they did while infected.
Three years into this great hope, the third wave of cured are ready for reintegration in Ireland.
Once released they find the dream of reintegration has failed with a two-tier society emerging. Suicide and alcoholism are widespread amongst the cured. Many are shunned by their remaining families, while others hold a deep bitterness over the government restrictions placed on them.
Amongst the third wave is Senan Browne, a man haunted with the memory of killing his brother, Luke, while infected. Senan desperately wants to confess to Luke’s widow, Abbie, and son. Although when faced with them he can’t go through with it. Senan begins to get dragged into the growing social unrest but his only concern is keeping Luke’s family safe.
With society crumbling and the government debating humane elimination of the resistant 25%, Senan’s redemption brings him to the heart of the chaos erupting around him.Directed ByDavid FreyneWritten ByDavid FreyneScreenplay ByDavid FreyneProduced ByRachael O’Kane & Rory Dungan
Today, Northern Irish rock band And So I Watch You From Afar (ASIWYFA) have announced their return with their new forthcoming album, ‘The Endless Shimmering. This will be the eclectic quartet’s fifth full length album following on from their widely acclaimed album ‘Heirs’. Alongside the announcement of their new album, band have also premiered a new video for the first single from the album entitled ‘A Slow Unfolding Of Wings’ with DIY Magazine.
Speaking about the single, DIY Magazine said, “Combining a few slower, more contemplative yet complex melodies alongside passages of pure, blistering riffs and thunderous percussion, it shows off the raw energy that they aimed to instil into the whole of ‘The Endless Shimmering’.”
In support of their forthcoming album, ASIWYFA have also announced a 42-date EU/UK tour to start this autumn covering the UK and much of Europe. They will be joined by Gallops for all of their UK dates. ASIWYFA have a relentless thirst for touring and over the past 7-years they have tallied up almost 500 shows worldwide – including less common tour stops such as China, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
The Endless Shimmering will be available everywhere on LP, CD and download on October 20th, 2017 via Sargent House.

Northern Ireland’s most breath-taking, compelling and heart-stoppingly brilliant export announces a return to European shores, with an extensive tour this coming autumn.
The band’s incredible, passionate live show ventures through joyous bubbling rhythmic anticipation, to specks and glitches of electronica, intertwined with what sounds like a thousand drum-kits chasing each other down the street in time. Add gloriously warm layers of cascading vocals, and distorted, mischievous guitars, and what you get is an overwhelming feeling of triumph, pleasure, euphoria; ASIWYFA live leaves you feeling like everything really is gonna be alright.
Everything points to a massive year for the band, with everything to play for.
