2013 is set up to be an exciting time for The Mighty Stef, a seasoned, alternative – rock band based out of Dublin, Ireland. Already an experienced touring and recording act TMS are gearing up to make a re-defining new studio Album early next year. The band will record the new album at 11AD in Hollywood, CA with acclaimed Producer Alain Johannes. To date Johannes has made albums with Queens Of The Stoneage, Mark Lanegan, Arctic Monkeys, Chris Cornell, Black Box Revelator, Spinnerette and many more. The band plan a campaign of release for the new album in the spring of 2013 together with some extensive touring.

The Mighty Stef have an extensive touring and recording history and have what you might describe as a cult following in Europe and The US. 2012, however, largely seen a break in touring for the band to concentrate on writing the new record. A more ambitious musical landscape and the addition of an outside producer is pointing in the dierction of a very new and exciting departure in sound for this worldly group of Dublin men.

Sonically The Mighty Stef embraces the glory of rock n roll in all its forms. The storytelling nature of the songwriting, an often dark undertone and a constant march towards something rich and big and victorious. Notable references [some of which are also influences] include: The Walkmen, Arcade Fire, Band Of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Primal Scream.
