Ray Foley and JP have been incredibly supportive since “Human Relations” was released and have played the song over and over. We'll be heading in to the Today FM studios on Thursday 16th February to give them a very special unplugged rendition of the song and a mystery cover version. So much of a mystery in fact that we haven't even made up our minds about it yet. Be sure to tune in to the show between 12.00 and 2.30 in the afternoon. You can text your support to (083) 4100 102.
We were already pretty stoked about getting to Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Galway as part of the tour to promote “Human Relations” but we're extra pleased to announce that we'll be playing Auntie Annie's in Belfast on Thursday 23rd February with The Flaws. That should be a great night as they're an amazing live band too. If you're in the North, get yourself along there.
Rick O'Shea has made “Human Relations” his single of the week for the week commencing Monday, February 6th and the song is getting played every day on his 2FM show which goes out between 2.00 and 4.00 in the afternoon. We'd like to say a big thanks to Rick for the support. It's nice to feel the love. You can let him know you love the song too by texting 51552 and asking him to keep playing it.
Well, we've had to get a little creative with the spelling of the band's name as we ran into a little clash of trade marks in the US. It looks different but it sounds exactly the same and we're exactly the same band you always loved. You did, didn't you?
Human Relations, the first single to be released from our up and coming second album, will be released in Ireland on February 17th. You'll be able to buy it on iTunes and be sure to request it on your favourite radio show. It's a monster, we think you're gonna love it!
The video for Human Relations, starring and written by Ben Morrison of MTV's Punk'd, is online now. We're super excited to hear what you all think of it so get commenting. Check it out on the Senakah YouTube channel.
Help us launch our forthcoming single by coming along to one of our launch gigs. We're in the Workman's Club on Dublin's Wellington Quay on Thursday February 16th and we'll be wetting the new single's head in Limerick with a gig in Dolan's Warehouse on Friday February 17th. We'll be hoping to see all our old friends out for the night.

Senakah (or Seneca as they were back then) first fell into place in Limerick City, Ireland in the latter half of 2005. Vocalist Rob Hope and bass-player Yvonne Conaty, had been in a band which imploded, Daragh O'Loughlin had joined as it's drummer just before it breathed its last. The trio became a four-o when they were blown away by Brendan O'Gorman's guitar wrangling skills at a house party and invited him to join the band. The four piece had their first gig at a local Battle Of The Bands (yes, they did win - thanks for asking) and from then on they have been on an unbending mission to bring their unique music to the world.
After a year or so of writing songs and playing together the next logical step was to make a record and over the course of a year and a half Sweeter Than Bourbon was recorded in various bathrooms, bedrooms - even the occasional real studio - and it saw the light of day in mid-2008. The reception made all the effort and time worthwhile with messages of congratulations coming from Spain, France and Sweden sending the band scuttling off to find online translations.
The opportunity arose to play a festival in Colorado and with encouragement from performers such as Speech (from Arrested Development) and Mac Gayden (Dylan's guitarist on Blonde On Bonde), the band decided to return to the US for a full tour. That “tour” spun out over time to almost three hundred shows over the course of a couple of years, from little bar gigs like the one in Springsteen's local in Asbury Park, to festival gigs in front of thousands, even jamming with Funkadelic's Bernie Worrell along the way.
All the while the band were building up an impressive collection of new songs which were being introduced into the live set. The decision was then made to return to Ireland to finsh the process of writing the new album and to record the songs. The band knew Noel Hogan of the Cranberries through a mutual friend and he was always forthcoming with suggestions and generous with his experience so when he offered to produce the new album they were elated. Recorded over the course of twenty seven days in the former Bishop's Palace in Limerick, the new album Human Relations, is a confident step forward for the band in both songwriting and recording. As always their one clear hope is that it brings Senakah into many more hearts and minds.
