Dublin quartet The Riptide Movement are getting all fired up to play Galway’s favourite music haunt Monroe’s Live. As part of their current tour they’ll hit Galway’s West End on Friday, November 18th. The Riptide Movement are four friends from Lucan who began their musical journey way back in 2006.
They self-released their first two albums ‘What About The Tip Jars?’ (2009 – produced by legendary producer Tony Colton) and ‘Keep On Keepin’ On’ (2012 – self-produced) – a snapshot of a band in evolution, full of character, and brimming with songs packed with passion and raucous charm.
Building their fan base through relentless touring, they have an insatiable drive, dedication, and work ethic; their first major show at Dublin’s Olympia in 2012 was a gamble.
After recording their third album, ‘Getting Through’ independently TRM booked two shows, one in LA and one in New York, to give the music industry in the States a chance to get on board. Off the back of those shows, they signed with a major label, but their mindset has never changed– work just as hard.
This year they released the American recorded album ‘Ghosts’ to critical acclaim.
