Spacecake are a four piece indie/rock band from Cork. Having formed as a bunch of fearless teenagers, they were part of the thriving local music scene in the early 1990’s. A young Spacecake were lucky enough to grace the stage with legendary Cork acts like The Frank and Walters and Sultans of Ping and thread the boards of famous Cork venues like The Village, Sir Henry’s and Cork City Hall. But, teenage kicks eventually took their toll and the band sadly decided to call it a day in early 1993.
Having always remained friends, the lads often reminisced over a few pints. It took a mere seventeen years before they decided to get back together for another series of musical adventures. In Feb 2010 Spacecake were once again an indie/rock four piece! Since then, the band has been lucky enough to write songs in bandrooms, record music in studios and play gigs in venues. All the bands recorded material is available for free download from www.spacecaketheband.com. The latest spacecake release “find a way to hold on” was launched on 23rd of January 2015 and preempts a 2015 debut album release.
