The Virginmarys exploded onto the rock music scene in 2013 with their album 'King of Conflict', which debuted #3 on the Billboard New Artist Alternative Chart and #8 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. With 'King of Conflict', The Virginmarys were dubbed the buzz band of SXSW, received major support from US Active Rock and Alternative radio, and press acclaim from Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, USA Today, and more.
The band followed up with 2016’s Divides which, in addition to major press, was hailed by Apple Music, Spotify, Yahoo! Music, and more. The Virginmarys have brought their highly charged live show to tours throughout the US, Europe, and Japan, supporting artists including Queens of the Stone Age, Shinedown, Eagles of Deathmetal, Crobot, and hitting huge festivals to include Reading & Leeds, Download Festival, Sonisphere, Isle of Wight Festival, and more.
Having just arrived back from supporting Slash and Myles Kennedy, and following an unforgettable set with Frank Turner at this year’s Camden Rocks Festival, 2019 has been a memorable year for the Virginmarys.
The success of their highly acclaimed 3rd album ‘Northern Sun Sessions’ has lead to the band playing a series of sold out shows already this year before heading back for their homecoming at the Manchester Academy 2.
