close About Me
- Me, Myself, and I
- After notching up a stackful of hits from their debut platinum album A Public Display Of Affection, The Blizzards are back with another power pop gem, 'Trust Me I'm A Doctor'.
Proving that they're immune to second album syndrome, the fivesome are set to dose up music afflicted fans with this first offering from their new LP The Domino Effect, due to be unleashed mid September.
Trust Me I'm A Doctor is a welcome injection of the band's trademark blend of punk, ska and pop, administered with an unnerving blow of energy so often absent in modern day pop records.
"The song outlines a group of guys' holiday tactics to indulge the opposite sex," explains frontman Bresy.
"They may have a regular mundane job at home, but while on holiday their professional and social status becomes slightly 'elevated': suddenly they are doctors, sport stars or lawyers.
"Fundamentally it's okay to invite them back to their apartments for sexual adventures because they are fine, upstanding pillars of society!"
We're really looking forward to playing The Olympia Saturday night ! It is for us the final Dublin show of 2009 & for the foreseeable future - We'll be taking a break from touring next year due to family/personal commitments -
We also feel we'd like some time before we start into recording our third album-
We would expect to be back out gigging in the Autumn of 2010 -
Huge Huge thanks to everyone who bought a record or a ticket to see us in the last year - It was a fantastic year for us -
Before we embark on our "sabbatical" we will play a final run of gigs straight after Christmas & finishing up on December 31st in Mullingar -
From all of us band,management,label & crew we'd like to take this opportuniuty to wish you all a very Happy Christmas & a peaceful New Year !

The Blizzards – World Video Premiere of book theme on VidZone for PS3
The music video for The Blizzard’s “And Another Thing” single will be exclusively available as a world premiere only on VidZone™ for PLAYSTATION®3 from Thursday October 15 at 14.00 BST/15.00 CET/23.00EAEST. The video format is an exclusive also, as it’s the first official book track celebrating the cult and highly anticipated sixth and final book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy series, ‘And Another Thing’.
The Blizzards – huge Hitchhikers fans themselves – contacted fellow Irishman Eoin Colfer to write a track to go with the book and lead vocalist Niall Breslin spent time with Colfer in the south of France working on the lyrical themes while the book’s script was under wraps.
Breslin says, ‘To be involved with the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy phenomenon is such an honour for us as a band. We have been massive fans for years and are delighted the Hitchhikers tradition is being continued by such an amazingly creative writer like Eoin Colfer. The quirkiness and oddities so prevalent in Hitchhikers and Eoin's style, have a symmetry with The Blizzards' sound. When I finally hunted Eoin down to get the lowdown on what actually happens in the book, our parallel universes connected on an artistic level”.
Directed by Pew35, the video features two stoners who eat a psychedelic pizza before finding themselves in a parallel universe.
The Blizzards ‘Domino Effect’ album is out now.
