There are at least two known bands with the name "wishbone" 1) An alternative rock band from Dublin, Ireland 2) A Hardcore metal/rock outfit from the Byron Hinterland in Australia HISTORY: Wishbone is an alternative rock band from Dublin, Ireland. Drawing influence from the blues of the 60s, classic rock of the 70s and alternative/metal bands of the 90s, they counter driving hard rock rhythms with mellow acoustics, and a keen sense of melody. The band was formed in the summer of 2008, by singer Matt Hayward & guitarist Ivan Byrne, who were both looking to move on from previous projects. Hayward had previously fronted alternative rock bands Honeycomb and Garden Blue; the former releasing the single "I Slip Away" in 2007, and the latter releasing the album "Outside In", featuring multi-platinum selling artist Edie Brickell, of Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, and Fire Ants/Malfunkshun guitarist Kevin Wood. After the recording, the members parted on good terms.

Byrne had previously played bass in blues rock outfit Outbreed, and in early 2009 Wishbone recruited former Outbreed guitarist Niall Feeney on bass guitar, the re-united bandmates reversing the roles they had occupied in their previous band. Drummer Joe Johnston was also added to the line-up in 2009, replacing former drummer Nathan Ogle, who returned to his native Canada, the foursome are currently touring in promotion of their debut album, "Butterfly". BUTTERFLY (DEBUT ALBUM) 2009 Featuring a blend of heavy, guitar-based grooves, and quirky acoustic melodies, embellished by Byrne's bluesy guitar solos, and Hayward's deeply metaphoric and poetic lyrics, "Butterfly" was released April 2009, through Digital Revolution Records. The band are currently touring to promote the albums release, while they also plan to record a follow up EP by the end of 2009. POST-BUTTERFLY - PRESENT: With a full-length album under their belt, and a second release firmly in the making - all within a few months of the bands conception - the band's enthusiasm and commitment shines through. Despite their work ethic, however, the members are known to exhibit an oddball sense of humor. Their next release rumored to be an acoustic EP titled ''Silvertongue'' is said to feature 5 tracks, although no release date is set as of yet.
