Planet Mosh chats with vocalist Philly Byrne and guitarist John Roche of  Irish thrashers Gama Bomb in a noisy backstage area at Belfast’s Empire Music Hall, where the band were playing the second of two shows on one of their rare visits to their homeland.

The interview starts by talking about their recent appearance at Bloodstock Open Air, before moving on to the reasons why they don’t play their native Ireland more often, the cancellation of their proposed forthcoming US tour and their plans for a new album in 2014.
