Bell X1 On World Cafe

The Irish rock band Bell X1 has experienced a multitude of changes on its path to success. Popular vocalist Damien Rice once led the band when it was known by a different name — Juniper. Rice left the group, drummer Paul Noonan joined, and soon after the group changed its name to Bell X1.

Of its three studio-recorded albums, Flock, released February 2008, has proven to be the most successful. The album reached No. 1 in Ireland and gained a huge following throughout the U.K. Since then, the group has released 2009's Blue Lights on the Runway and this year's Bloodless Coup.

Hear and watch Bell X1 play live at the Guiness Storehouse in Dublin and discuss their fanbases in Ireland and in the U.S.
