It's Saturday, which means more of JOE’s Saturday Warm Up Tracks. With More Than Conquerers, Blakfish and Le Galaxie, you’ll be well in the mood for heading out tonight.

More than Conquerors – When the Well Runs Dry
‘When the Well Runs Dry’ is the first single from their debut album to be released later this year on Smalltown America Records. With two EPs under their belt and support slots with bands such as Jimmy Eat World and Feeder, the Belfast four piece have seen their fanbase grow and grow. The band are currently embarking on a tour across the U.K. but hopefully we’ll be lucky enough to have 'em down south sometime soon.
Blakfish – 'Jeremy Kyle is a Marked Man'
It's an awful shame that Blakfish broke up after only one album, 2009’s 'Champions'. Thankfully three of the four members regrouped to form &U&I, who are subsequently set to release a debut album ‘Light Bearer’. ‘Jeremy Kyle is a Marked Man’ can be found on Blakfish’s 2008 EP ‘See You in Another City’, but racing fans may recognise the track from the game Colin McCrae: Dirt 2.
Le Galaxie – Love System
An incredible live act and one of the must see bands on the Irish music scene, Le Galaxie have been spreading the love all across Europe. If you happen to be in Berlin today get down to Tempelhof now, and if not they’ll be popping up around the country over the coming months, so you’ve really got no excuse.
Having released their debut album ‘Laserdisc Nights 2’ in 2011, which you can get for free here, Le Galaxie followed it up with their ‘Fade 2 Forever’ E.P. released back in June. ‘Love System’ is the lead track from 'Fade 2 Forever' and features Elaine Mai on vocals.
