Live at the Castle: The Coronas
The Coronas’ journey as a band has definitely been unique. Initially an indie success story, the band built up a huge student following in the late noughties with anthems like ‘San Diego Song’ and ‘Heroes or Ghosts’. Over the next 12 years, they would continue to develop musically and grow their audience to become one of Ireland’s biggest bands, selling out arenas, theatres and headlining festivals in the process.
When the pandemic hit in March 2020, not only did it scupper their world tour plans and delay an album release, it also left the Dublin 3-piece with an unfortunate band name issue. Not to be perturbed, the band released the album True Love Waits in August and managed to secure the number 1 spot in the album charts, outperforming Fontaines DC and Taylor Swift, while also becoming the fastest selling Irish album of 2020.
With numerous multi-platinum albums under their belt and a reputation for being one of the most consistent and impressive live acts in the country for over a decade, it is no surprise that an unfortunately named virus could not stop them.
True Love Waited, and it is time for the Coronas to take centre stage again, for the right reasons…
