This year represents a remarkable milestone in the history of The Distortion Project​. 2018 sees the DP turn eighteen — old enough to vote, buy a bottle of Buckfast, and watch The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

What started out as a club night in January 2000 has turned into something beyond anything I could have possibly imagined in those far off early days. From metal nights to local and then international touring bands, to managing bands, organising tours, the record label, the radio show and the involvement with the Bloodstock Festival family, it’s been a wonderful rollercoaster of highs and lows.

I’m proud of what I’ve achieved with the DP so far and I want to pay tribute to my oldest friends Elizabeth J Turtle​ and a Colin Murdy​. The 3 of us started this thing together all that time ago and the ethos and attitude of those early years remains with me today.

To celebrate this, I'm pleased to announce a series of special shows to commemorate this most special of birthdays. The first of these — «Eighteen and Life» will host 11 bands in the Limelight Belfast​ on Saturday 21st April, the first 6 of which are listed below. Doors will be at 1pm. Special early bird tickets will be on sale Friday 12th January for a one off price of £6.00. (£8.00 there after). These will be limited to 50 and will be available from thedistortionproject.bigcartel.com.

There will also be a run of t-shirts to commemorate this occasion and I'll post pre-order details on this shortly. I'll also be posting something from the DP archives once a week, to include old posters pics, and other gems from the past 18 years.

The full line-up is

By Any Means
Congenital Abnormalities
Conjuring Fate
Cursed Sun
Donum Dei
Rabid Bitch Of The North
Skypilot The-band
The Crawling
