Anyway But Maybes


Another new single from Irish punk

After reaching No. 1 and No. 2 in the iTunes Rock chart with his two singles and epic shows with 60’s Rock legend Arthur Brown, Irish Punk Rocker JD Kelleher crowns a busy year with his best single yet, the roaring “Avenge The Maybes”, released Friday 18th November 2016.

Following his triumphant occupancy of the coveted No. 1 spot at the heights of the Irish Rock Charts with his debut single “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, along with his second single “Imagery”reaching No. 2 in the Irish Rock charts, JD Kelleher is set to launch himself back to familiar territory at the top of the (Rock) pile with his most exciting release to date; “Avenge The Maybes”.

“Avenge The Maybes” is soaked in classic JD Kelleher swagger and defiance, akin to the likes of The Buzzcocks and Freddie Mercury. Irish rocker Kelleher draws upon his self-styled stage rage, humour and character to deliver a truly powerful performance that strikes a unique chord with his audience across all platforms of performance. With a visceral, stunning vocal, “Avenge The Maybes” is unforgettable.

Songs, like movies, are about something different depending on who is listening. My songs reflect my life as a gay artist; the struggles, the frustrations and of course the triumphs. Yet the themes are universal. Avenge The Maybes is a call to arms to live your life fully and to be who you really are, because, guess what… it will all be over in no time.” – JD Kelleher
