Metaphysicians were conceptualised en route to a skydive onto a glacier in New Zealand in 2006. Fuelled by pinot noir and metaphysical poetry, founder members and chief songwriters John Tully and Muiris O'Sullivan sought out death metal bassist Joey Coyne and art/jazz/hawaiian drummer Tim 'Tommy' Tully from the bowels of Medical School exams to flesh out the sound on return to Galway. In 2007, they played 3 historical shows to rabid fans. In early 2008, they retreated to the backwoods of northern Galway and recorded 'Debutant', the startingly stupendous EP which propelled them into the stratosphere of the megastadium circuit.
