Limerick/Cork based independent label Out On A Limb Records is taking four of its bands - Waiting Room, Rest, giveamanakick and Ten Past Seven - on a four-date Irish tour.

Limerick band giveamanakick's 'Is It Ok To Be Loud, Jesus?' was the label's debut release last July.

Cork's Rest, after releasing a limited edition split single with giveamanakick at Christmas, are due to release their debut album 'Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame' this summer.

Out On A Limb also released the Waiting Room album 'Catering for Headphones' in February and the fourth band, Kerry's Ten Past Seven, described as "putting the mentalists back into instrumentalists", hope to release their debut later this year.

The tour kicks off in Whelan's in Dublin on Wednesday 12 May, before moving to the label's birthplace of Limerick for two nights - Thursday 13 May at the Scholars Function Room in University of Limerick and in the High Stool, Catherine Street on the following night (Friday 14 May).

The following week sees a trip further south to the label's other base city, Cork, when the tour arrives at the Lobby on Thursday 20 May.

Waiting Room and giveamanakick have both been confirmed to play at this year's OXEGEN Festival.
