“The Clan” are a band from Milan – Italy, formed in late 2013. Their sound is a mashup of Punk Rock and traditional Celtic & Irish music. The mix of electric guitars, bagpipes, violin, banjo and flutes makes them very recognizable. Their bigger inspiration comes from bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly.

They have released 3 album and 1 EP . From 2014 to 2018 they played more than 250 concerts, traveling between Italy and Europe, treading important stages, becoming headliner in many festivals and supporting important artists of punk and folk scene.

We can consider The Clan a sort of  ”Party band”: many times they were the first choice for “Irish parties” and ” Celtic festivals”. They always involve the audience with dancing, animations and catchy chorus, but they also have a powerful punk sound that could easily set off a pogo.

The Clan have many collaborations with big artists like: Modena City Ramblers, Punkreas, Shandon, Vallanzaska, Folkstone, The Rumjacks, The Real McKenzie, The Mahones, Andre Toselli (Aka Andrea Rock from Virgin Radio) and many others.

It’s an EP, and the First in Italian Language. They made this choice, because The Band need to thank their Country . It’s a Concept EP.  It’s a brief outdoor excursions ( that’s the meaning of the title )  from their usually sound.  It contains four tracks that describe hypothetical “four days” that are described in a very raw and direct way with Italian lyrics surrounded by fast and dancing rhythms, fiddle riffs and screaming chorus.

CREDITS OF THE ALBUM : Angelo Roccato ( Lyrics & Music, production, voice / guitars / mandolin / bass / drums), Francesco Ricci ( Fiddle )

Third album of the band, it decisively marks the band’s intention to break away from the labels and be able to describe their sound simply as “Folk – something” … 😉

In fact, in this album there are : Pop / rock songs,  Hard Rock songs , Ska songs , Reggae inserts and much more. The absolute innovation of this album is the two italian songs: “Johnny non parla” (translation of the song, “Johnny” in which we talk about bullying and terrorism ) and “Rievoluzione” (Ska / Punk song feat. Punkreas). There is also a cover: “Wayfaring Stranger“, a piece of the American country / folk tradition already made by greats like Johnny Cash; The Clan make a very Punk version of it.

CREDITS :  Angelo Roccato ( Music & Lyrics, Lead Voice, Mando & Guitars ), Stephen Trollip ( English Lyrics ), Marta Innocenti ( English Lyrics ), Francesco Ricci ( Fiddle ), Maurizio Cardullo ( Folkstone : Bagpipe, Whistles, Bouzouki ) , Stefano Becce ( bass ), Pietro della Sala ( Drums ), Chiara DeSio ( Voice & Whistle)

SPECIAL GUESTS  : Giancarlo Percopo ( “Barbarian Pipe band” Bagpipe ) , Olly Riva ( Shandon, Guest Vocal in “Jail Times” ), Christian Perrotta ( Vallanzaska, Hammond in “Jail Times”), Francesco “Fry” Moneti ( Modena City Ramblers, Fiddle & Mando in “Seize the Day” ), Lorenzo Marchesi, Roberta Rota, Matteo Frigeni (  Folkstone, Vocals & Hurdy gurdy in “Johnny” ), Paletta e Cippa ( Punkreas, Vocals in “Rievoluzione” )

The second album which guarantees  the band the official entry into the world of the Irish Punk ( of the Italian scene ). A lot of fanzines and punk & celtic radios was very interested about the band, because of this album.

From this record we start to understand that the band is already laying the groundwork to work in a wider music scene, but always in the folk field. Thanks to this record, the activity of the band becomes more and more intense, confirming the stage the natural habitat of The Clan.

“The Clan”, the band’s eponymous first album, the business card with which the band appeared for the first time in the scene. Is clear the reference to groups such as Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly . This album contains, in addition to few original songs, some traditional Irish songs in a very nice Punk Version.

CREDITS : Angelo Roccato ( Lyrics & Music, Lead Voice & Guitars) , Pietro Della Sala ( drums ) , Stefano Becce ( Bass ) , Laura Brancorsini ( Fiddle ), Chiara DeSio ( Tin Whistle ) , Daniele Bicego ( Bagpipes ), Giuseppe Malena ( Irish Flute ) .

GUESTS : Lorenzo Marchesi ( Folkstone, bagpipe in “Throat of Devil”) , “Andrea Rock” Toselli ( voice in Joseph, Mary and Son ), Paolo Noise ( Punkreas, guitar solo in  Joseph, Mary and Son ).
