The Coronas have added a second date to their June stint at Live at the Marquee Cork.

The band will now play July 19 and 20 with tickets going on sale Jan 23 at 9am from Ticketmaster and usual outlets.

They released their fourth album, The Long Way, their first with UK label island Records in November, joining the home of artists including Disclosure, Florence and The Machine, Mumford and Sons and Irish Artists U2, Hozier and Little Green Cars.

Most of ‘The Long Way’ was written and recorded before Island came on board with producer Eliott James .

“We met Eliott by chance,” says singer Danny O’Reilly. “We liked the albums he’d worked on before, but mostly we chose him because we got on. He’s very hands-on, he plays lots of instruments and he suggested some new directions for the songs we wouldn’t have come up with ourselves.”
