Dublin 5 piece TabloidTv have just showcased their new track "Something New" which is taken from the forthcoming EP "First Night Last Night" due out in June. The band are comprised of Ruairi Higgins, Senan Dobey, Ultan Murray, Ian Rankin and Moninne Murray. They all met in school in Dublin but it wasn't until they went to college that they began making music together.

"Something New" will be released on May 11th but there will be a special launch gig on May 4th at The Underground in Dublin. The show is bound to be incredible so don't miss out on your chance at catching Tabloi…
