Praise for M(h)aol:

“A vital piece of feminist work, set to staggeringly good punk noise.” - Gigwise 10/10

"This is a tune lifted from a debut ep that’s due out October the 29th. Dealing with the issue of misogny and male violence against women.” - BBC6 Music, Mary Anne Hobbs

“Clocking in at a brief 1:50, it packs a brief but muscular punch.” - Hot Press

“Gritty post-punk with both an important political consciousness and a sense of fun.” - NME 100

“Gender Studies is a crystal-clear mission statement from another very exciting band out of Ireland” - So Young

“A controlled ambient environment that makes radical socio-political songs such as Laundries, Asking for It and the title track merciless butts to the head.” - The Irish Times, 15 Acts For 2022

Title track 'Gender Studies'

Swiftly becoming one of the buzziest bands to come out of Ireland, M(h)aol will perform at The Ivy House in SE15 on Thursday 24th February, and there is limited guest list if you fancy checking them out.

FORM x London in Stereo have selected three of their favourite new artists to play one of South London's best undiscovered venues, and next week M(h)aol will be joined by Blood Wizard, and GENN.

Tickets are on sale now HERE

They released their debut EP Gender Studies in October last year via TULLE, and have already been handpicked by the legendary Shellac for their Ireland dates in April, will support Bodega at Moth Club in March, and have been announced for the sold out Green Man and End Of The Road Festivals.

About M(h)aol: Currently based between Dublin, London, and Bristol, M(h)aol (pronounced male) are formed of Róisín Nic Ghearailt, Constance Keane aka Fears, Jamie Hyland (Gilla Band’s ‘Holding Hands With Jamie’), Zoe Greenway, and Sean Nolan.

Debut EP Gender Studies is out now on streaming platforms and vinyl. The Dinked Edition version of the vinyl which was limited to 300 copies sold out in just 36 hours, with the demand for the standard version being more than they were planning to make. It was recorded in just 3 days due to their different locations, and covers topics such as violence against women, and the misogynistic music scene in Ireland and the UK.

Earlier in 2021 they released the single ‘Asking For It’ with an aim to dismantle the external and internal narratives that perpetuate the behaviours behind gender-based violence and victim-blaming. It was shared earlier than planned in light of the Sarah Everard murder, with all profits donated to Women’s Aid Ireland, a charity who aim to end domestic violence against women and children.

M(h)aol have seen support from NME, Rough Trade, BBC6 Music, So Young, Gigwise, Hot Press, The Irish Times, and more.
