After releasing their debut EP Gender Studies last year, M(h)aol return with new single “Bored Of Men,” along with the news, The band have announced they’re set to play Latitude Festival and Pitchfork Paris. Currently based between Dublin, London, and Bristol, M(h)aol (pronounced male) are formed of Róisín Nic Ghearailt, Constance Keane aka Fears, Jamie Hyland (Gilla Band’s ‘Holding Hands With Jamie’), Zoe Greenway, and Sean Nolan.

Singer Róisín Nic Ghearailt says of the track, “I wrote the lyrics of this song in a matter of minutes while we were recording together. The ideas had obviously been fermenting in my head for a while, and it was written during *that* extremely disconcerting & alarmingly public court case. The title of the song is very tongue in cheek for me, but it does reference a very real sense of frustration and exhaustion with the Patriarchy. When I say the Patriarchy I don’t mean individuals (although they can obviously perpetuate it), I mean institutional and structural oppression.”

She adds “I’m bored with the conversation in the media solely focusing on damage that’s been done rather than thinking of ways to evolve and heal and challenge the systems that prop these individuals up. I’m bored of always *just* talking about men.“

M(h)aol are set to perform at multiple festivals this summer that include the likes of Green Man, End Of The Road, and now Latitude Festival and Pitchfork Paris. They’ll also play a headline show at The Grace on 19th July, supported by fellow TULLE signees GRAVE GOODS
