The Riptide Movement plot Irish tour
The former HP cover stars also have a new single out later this month.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 05 Oct 2012
There’s lots going on in The Riptide Movement camp with a new single, ‘Without You’, and accompanying video out on October 26. Then comes a five-date Irish tour that takes in The Slate, Cork (October 27); Roisin Dubh, Galway (November 2); Olympia, Dublin (10); Forum, Waterford (20); and Dolan’s, Limerick (24). Then it’s on to Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Vienna, Prague and Amsterdam for pre-Christmas dates.
They’ve been taken on by Asgard, the London-based booking agents who look after such major names as Tom Waits, k.d. lang, Elvis Costello, The Waterboys and The Kinks and run a stage at Glastonbury.
The chaps will also be keeping a diary for us this month when they fly out to Delhi for the Rendezvous Festival. There’s a healthy indie scene there spearheaded by Menwhopause – ouch! – who Hot Press ran into a few years ago at a Jack Daniel’s event in Tennessee. As you do.
We’ve been racking our brains here, but can’t think of any other Irish band who’ve been over to India recently. If you know different, get in touch!
