Hard as hell and soft as cotton. At the same time. Ironville are standing on the tip of their toes creating extrovert music for introvert listeners. More of everything. Accordion and trumpets. Strings and choirs. Singing birds and broken promises.
Open your mouth wide and sing! Fill up your iPod and run as far as your legs can carry you. Or as far as you can get in 27 minutes.
On december 2nd, 2009, seven man strong Ironville will release their album debut.
