Mullingar Instrumental band ‘Megacone’ making waves in the UK


“A really talented group of musicians who are on a mission to bring something fresh and different to the table” – That is how Megacone were described by rock authority PlanetMosh who recently interviewed them in Holyhead during their UK tour.

The five piece instrumental band, which features two Westmeath members, have enjoyed much success since they started out as music students in Ballyfermot College of Further Education.

After signing a record deal with Dimestore Records in late 2015, the band promptly released ‘Absolute Magnitude’ to a sell out crowd in Whelan’s, Dublin. The EP was critically acclaimed and landed the band a full page spread in Prog Magazine.
