Ireland’s finest purveyors of Rock n’ Roll The Riptide Movement; celebrate a Top 5 place in the Irish album charts by announcing a special Irish tour this September.
Speaking of the success of the latest album, Mal Tuohy – front-man of the band explains; “It has taken the best part of eighteen months to write and record ‘Ghosts’, a journey that began somewhere between the Caragh river and the Seefin mountains of Glenbeigh, Kerry and came to completion in Tornillo, Texas, thirty miles east of the Rio Grande, under the guidance of Grammy award winning producer Ted Hutt. We feel it’s our greatest offering to date and we’re so excited to finally get it out to the world.
Having blown the Irish music scene wide open in 2014 with their Number One, gold-selling album ‘Getting Through’, a string of Top 10 singles and various sold-out headline tours, the four piece – comprising Malachy Tuohy (vocals, piano and guitar), John Dalton (guitar), Gerry McGarry (bass & harmonica) and Gar Byrne (drums & percussion) – will be returning to Killarney after a very busy summer of festivals in Ireland and all over Europe.
The Riptide Movement are Irish rock’s best kept secret filling Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and enjoying a break-out radio hit with their single ‘All Works Out’ (which also soundtracked a Discover Ireland commercial) they are enjoying the successful reception of their fourth album, Ghost.
The Riptide Movement kick start the autumn season in the INEC Acoustic Club and are the first in a collaboration between the INEC Killarney and Radio Kerry to bring the best of Irish music to Kerry audiences. Irish singer songwriter Mundy follows October 6 and folk-rock band Hermitage Green December 15.
