About The Event
The Grand Social
"If being an outcast means to live on the fringes, refusing to follow the herd, Devlin might be the defintion of the word. The mercurial MC, 15 years into a career that’s spanned gold-selling albums and Top 10 hits without straying from his underground roots, has never been interested in trends, a fact underlined on his take-no-prisoners grime riot of a new record.
“I called it The Outcast ‘cos I just do me. I’ve never really been ‘in’ or part of something bigger than myself. I’m not like anything else out there. I play by my own rules. It’s not me to be a sheep,”. The album is made up of 13 breathless tracks long, it’s a lean, mean musical Molotov cocktail that, after the emotional purge of 2017’s acclaimed The Devil In, sees the 29-year-old returns to the punishing high-velocity flows and menacing beats of his early days.
“No glitz, no glamour, just venomous lyrics and dirty beats made in a dark, smoky room, just getting in the booth and doing what needs to be done,” the Dagenham master grins. Follow the herd? Devlin has spent his decade and a half in the game leading it.
Devlin will play the Grand Social on Wednesday 24th April with tickets from €16.45 incl. booking fee on sale Friday 1st March at 10am from Ticketmaster
