About The Riptide Movement

Forming in early 2006 the past three years have seen Dublin’s Blues Rock four piece burst onto the Irish and U.K music scene. Sporting influences from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Rory Gallagher, The Doors, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones. The blues quartet were together three months when they penned an early demo and set off for New York’s venues... Stopped, Interrogated and sent back to Dublin at the hands of "their good friends" in U.S customs, Down but not out, four days later they flew to London played 32 gigs and 2 festivals within 2 months!

Establishing their name in venues such as The Village, Vicar Street, Whelan’s, The Sugar Club, the length and breath of Ireland. U.K tours and festivals namely “The Harley Davidson” (Ireland) “Queens Park” (London) “Camden” (London) “In The City” (Manchester.)

Published by Martin Wyaat- Fleetwood Mac, The Faces, The Moody Blues, The War of the Worlds. The Debut Album boasts guest appearances from Reese Wynam - Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Double Trouble” on Hammond Organ. Recorded in Clique studios, sphere studios (London) and Cowboy jack Clements sound emporium (Nashville ,Tennessee) Released Through Bright music, I.Q music and Lucan Music.

Released April 30th and impressively in its first week of release charted at number 16 ahead of U2, Bell x1, and The Blizzards. Tower records best selling album ahead of Bob Dylan. Hmv, Rmg, T mobile and others wanting a slice of the pie! According to chart track it is the “Highest Independent release yet”! M.C.D, Aiken and Pod Promotions pushing the band. Interest from major labels, festivals, radio and television including The Late Late Show. The Band are now In talks with Fleetwood Mac about a lengthy tour, and interest from Screenplay producers for film and advert.

On Fri 6th Nov, The Riptide Movement released “Alive Inside” and without a massive media campaign, label buy ups or any “Tricks of the trade” they charted at number 13 in the official Irish charts and number 2 in the physical charts, I’m sure you’ll agree that achieving this by good honest hard gigging and determination in the height of an X factor boom is remarkable! The only Rock band in the top 15 position in the Irish charts that are not X factor related! Jolly Good!
