About Missing Andy

Recent singles:

‘Feel Like This’

‘Without You’

 Missing Andy formed in 2008 and have since released 3 albums, various Eps and had 2 top 40 hits in the UK.  Hailing from the depths of Essex, Missing Andy have built a loyal fan base across Europe with their anthemic choruses, energetic live shows and candid lyrical approach.

The band would describe their sound as a mongrel breed of the best British music from the last 30 years, blending indie, rock, ska and pop seamlessly.  It is fitting then that Missing Andy won ‘Best British Unsigned Band’ during a recent poll held by

Steve (Guitarist) from the band says, “The ‘Best of British Award’ was a nice surprise!  It seemed to pop up out of nowhere really, but it’s great to see our fans fight for us online and we’re very grateful for it.  We’ve had a bit of time off recently after releasing and touring our 3rd album – Guerrilla Invasion pt.2, but i think this is just the fuel we needed to light the fires and get us started on album 4, probably for 2015.

Missing Andy have been ambassadors of Base London shoes for over two years now, working closely with the brand as part of their marketing campaigns. This will be the band’s first time in Dublin and are looking forward to playing in-store at Genius.
