Inhaler recently shared their experiences of supporting Arctic Monkeys on tour.
Inhaler talks about supporting Arctic Monkeys
The Irish indie band, fronted by U2 singer Bono’s son, had toured with Arctic Monkeys in Europe this year and are set to do so again on the European leg of their world tour in 2023. Naturally, opening for “the greatest rock band in the world”, as they termed the Alex Turner-fronted band, gave them a sense of impostor syndrome.
“Every night, we just got to watch them be the greatest rock band in the world,” drummer Ryan McMahon told Far Out. “They’re just so on it, and for a band that hadn’t toured in like three years, they really proved why they’re still at the top, and their new album is so fun to listen to. The fact we get to do it all again goes back to that imposter syndrome. We don’t feel worthy of it at all.”
During the same interview, Inhaler discussed their upcoming album ‘Cuts & Bruises’, which is set to arrive on February 17. It is set to feature the fan favourite track ‘Dublin In Ecstasy’, a song the band originally wrote when they were teenagers. It has been noted that they are set to embark on a UK and Ireland headline tour in February in support of the album, before playing two of their biggest shows to date at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse and London’s O2 Academy Brixton in May.
