    THE PALE ARE CURRENTLY RECORDING A NEW STUDIO ALBUM..THE FOLLOW UP TO 2003's RELEASE 'LONELY SPACE AGE' THE NEW ALBUM IS DUE FOR RELEASE THIS AUTUMN UPCOMING GIG: FRIDAY 6th AUGUST @DOWINZ Kenyon St Nenagh Co Tipperary DOORS 8pm ABOUT THE PALE - 1990 to 2004 FORMED IN 1990, THE PALE SOUND CONSISTED OF MANDOLIN, BASS GUITAR, DRUM MACHINE AND VOCALS. IN 1990 THEIR DEBUT ALBUM "WHY GO BALD?" WAS RECORDED AND A YEAR LATER IN 1991 "HAPPY RING HOUSE" WAS RECORDED. THE PALE STARTED OFF PLAYING A SERIES OF WILDLY PASSIONATE & ENERGETIC GIGS AND THROUGH WORD OF MOUTH THEY GATHERED LARGE AUDIENCES PACKING OUT THE SMALLER VENUES IN DUBLIN INNER CITY. AN A&R FEEDING FRENZY FOLLOWED WITH A NUMBER OF RECORD & PUBLISHING COMPANIES OFFERING THEM DEALS. IN 1991 A&M RECORDS SIGNED THE BAND AND IN 1992 THEY RELEASED THREE NEW SINGLES AND AN ALBUM: "DOGS WITH NO TAILS" (SINGLE) "BUTTERFLY" (SINGLE) "SHUT UP VENUS" (SINGLE) "HERE'S ONE WE MADE EARLIER" (ALBUM) THE ALBUM "HERES ONE WE MADE EARLIER" WAS A SUCCESSFUL ALBUM WITH THE LEAD TRACK "BUTTERFLY" GETTING HIGH POSITIONS IN IRISH, EUROPEAN AND EASTERN EUROPEAN CHARTS. THE PALE PLAYED LIVE IN EUROPE, AMERICA, JAPAN, GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND FOR THE FOLLOWING TWO YEARS. BY THE END OF EXTENSIVE TOURING THE BAND NEEDED TIME OUT TO START WORKING ON NEW MATERIAL AND THEY SETTLED BACK IN DUBLIN. IN 1993 THE PALE PARTED COMPANY WITH A&M RECORDS. THEN, IN 1994 THE PALE FORMED AN INDEPENDENT COMPANY CALLED 'GUDENFAST' FOR FUTURE RECORDINGS AND RELEASED ANOTHER SINGLE, EP, AND TWO MORE ALBUMS. THEY ALSO DEVELOPED A SISTER GROUP CALLED "PRODUKT" AND PRODUCED TWO MORE ALBUMS... THE INDEPENDENT RECORDS WERE: "RIPE" (ALBUM) "IN ME" (SINGLE) "EP" (FIVE TRACK EP) "SPUDGUN" (ALBUM) INDEPENDENT RECORDS (SUBNAME "PRODUKT") "CHEAPSIDE" (ALBUM) "CRIPPLEGATE" (ALBUM) AT THIS STAGE IT WAS OUT OF THE STUDIO AND BACK ON THE ROAD. THE PALE TOURED EUROPE & SCANDINAVIA PLAYING IN FESTIVALS IN DENMARK, FINLAND GERMANY AND THE NETHERLANDS. THEY INDEPENDENTLY COVERED ALL COSTS BY RETURNS ON SALES OF THEIR INDEPENDENT RELEASES. THE PALE RETURNED ONCE AGAIN TO DUBLIN. THEY DID A NUMBER OF RECORDED SESSIONS WITH DAVE FANNING OF 2FM, A PLAYED A FEW MORE SHOWS AS "PRODUKT" AND MATTHEW CONTINUED TO DO WHAT HE DOES BEST....WRITING SONGS, COMPOSING AND PRODUCING INSTRUMENTAL ELECTRONICA. IN EARLY 2002 THE PALE RECORDED AN ALBUM CALLED "LONELY SPACE AGE" THIS WAS RELEASED INDEPENDENTLY IN 2003 AND DISTRIBUTED BY GAEL LINN NATIONALLY. COMPARED TO THEIR EARLIER ALBUMS AND PRODUKT RELEASES LONELY SPACE AGE HAS A BIGGER AND MORE ECLECTIC SOUND, UNUSUAL INTUITIVE YET MEANINGFUL LYRICS THAT ARE REFLECTIVE AND EMOTIVE ON DIVERSIONS OF LOVE, SORROW AND LIFE. THE PALE HAVE TOURED IRELAND IN '03 PLAYING VENUES COUNTRYWIDE INCLUDING WITNESS '03 WHICH WAS RECORDED AND AIRED ON 2FM. THEY INTEND TO BE BACK ON THE ROAD SOON AND HAVE A NUMBER OF CONCERTS LINED UP FOR THE REST OF '04. IN '02/'03 LEAD VOCALIST MATTHEW DEVEREUX ALSO RECORDED TWO SOLO ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENTAL RECORDS, RELEASED ON PSYCHONAVIGATION LABEL TITLED: "RUSSIAN SPACE RACE AUCTION" (FIVE TRACK EP) "TAP TAP TAP" (ALBUM) "TAP TAP TAP" GOT A LOT OF AIRPLAY ON NATIONAL RADIO, CHAMPIONED BY DAN HEGARTY ON 2FM, TODAY FM AND SINISTER PETE ON PHANTOM FM.
