The Coronas: Story of the unluckiest band in the world
The Coronas band


The second we hear the word 'Corona', we think about the deadly virus that has spread over the world, or the Corona beer. However, there has been a band long before the pandemic that has been making listeners do 'rock and roll' to their beats.

Many years before the coronavirus pandemic struck, an Irish indie-rock band called 'The Coronas' had come into scene with their debut album in the year 2007. They have been entrancing their fans with their music since then. They have carved a niche for themselves in the world of music and are all set to releases their sixth album now. The band includes Danny O'Reilly, Graham Knox and Conor Egan.
While the band name will forever belinked with the pandemic now, frontman Danny shared how they named their band 'The Coronas', he said, "We’re actually named after an old-school vintage typewriter called Smith Corona Deluxe. It was in this movie “Almost Famous” that we loved. So we just called ourselves Corona, and then we had to change [our name] because there was another band called Corona. So we became the Coronas."
He further told to the reporters about their reaction when they heard about the coronavirus pandemic, "It made an already strange situation a little bit more bizarre, you know? . . . Initially we wanted to poke fun at our name, but it was obviously a serious thing, it was a serious situation, so we couldn’t really poke fun at it. There were definitely moments where I was worried it would have a negative effect on our band. But if anything, our social media engagement and our Spotify numbers are actually up. I’d like to think that’s because we’re releasing good music, but who knows?"
Coronavirus has become the most common term for the whole world since the last 7 to 8 months. People have been suffering due to the pandemic and many have lost their lives. While health experts all over the world are trying to come up with the vaccine for this deadly virus, the cases are rising in the country at an appaling rate.
