Hail From :
Band Members :
Mal Tuohy- Lead Vocals, Guitar.
Ger McGarry- Bass, Harmonica, Vocals.
J.P.R Dalton- Lead Guitar, Vocals.
Gar Byrne - Drums, Vocals.

The Riptide Movement have just released their second full release aptly named "Keep On, Keepin' On' , The 12 track record just jumps out of the speakers from the get go with the hard paced harmonica drowned opener "Warming up the band". The album sounds like it was brilliant fun to record, The music is full on foot stomping in your face rock and roll, it just oozes energy. The album is currently rising up the Irish charts and its clear why . It's Hard to imagine this sound is being generated by four Irish lads and not some deep south American outfit. If you were to bring comparisons into the mix you would have to mention names like The Doors with hints of Kasabian/Jet/Hot Sprockets/Kings of Leon and so on.The album is one I will definitely being coming back to again and again if not just to get me out of bed in the morning, A great Irish release for 2012.
I for one can't wait to see this played out live, The lads are in town Friday week (25th of May) in dolans. If the album is anything to go by they will blow the roof off the upstairs venue. Get yourself down there!
