New York, NY (Top40 Charts) London-town Ska-Punk-Dubsters, Popes Of Chillitown have shared the new video for 'No Manners In Ireland', taken from the new album 'Work Hard, Play Hard, See You In The Graveyard' - Out Now.
Speaking on the track, vocalist Matt Conner said "It's about being scared of stuff; then dealing with it, then realising you haven't fully dealt with it so you get scared again. And so on.

"You have to realise that people are always there to help you and you shouldn't be so hard on yourself. Where you're at is probably pretty awesome, objectively and you've got more control over your future than you might think. Life's too short to hate yourself."

In support of the new 13-track third album Work Hard, Play Hard, See You In The Graveyard, Popes Of Chillitown will take to the road throughout the summer:

JUN 30 - IPSWICH W.O.W. Fest

A straight-up ska-punk band, they are not. Since 2008, they have expertly mashed the energy of upbeat ska, punk, 2-tone and drum & bass with the groove of reggae and dub, adding in the lyrical flow of hip hop and finishing it all off with a generous helping of catchy melodies and hooks.

Work Hard, Play Hard, See You In The Graveyard is socially aware, in a scornful manner, yet there's still an underlying layer of optimism. The up-tempo ska-punk will make you reminisce back to your teenage years, but under the surface there is a cavern of emotion and concern at the modern world.

Work Hard, Play Hard, See You In The Graveyard was written throughout late 2016 and early 2017 and recorded in May ‪2017 at Hackney Road‬ Studios, London - Mixed by James Bragg. To capture the true feeling of the band, bass, drums and guitars were recorded live - The result, the truest sound on record that IS Popes Of Chillitown.
'Work Hard, Play Hard, See You In The Graveyard' is out now on 12inch vinyl, CD and Digital Download.

Popes Of Chillitown are:
Matt Conner (vocal, acoustic guitar)
Arvin Bancil (bass)
Jack Ashley (drums)
Tom Penn (guitar)
Ieuan Williams (trombone)
Jon Pryce (Saxophone)
