CANCELLEDThursday 9 September
Sun-Warped Psychedelic Rock
This concert had to be cancelled due to the corona crisis.
Statement van Triptides:
It is with great sadness that we have made the decision to postpone the upcoming Triptides European tour.
Due to the rise in the Covid-19 Delta variant, many countries are enforcing new regulations that have already resulted in the cancellation of several festivals and club shows which were crucial to the routing and success of this tour. We have also accepted that there is a great amount of uncertainty as to the remaining shows as well as significant risk to the health of the band members, tour staff and audiences.
We were beyond excited for this one, and will be announcing new dates for 2022 as soon as we possibly can. We can’t wait to get back to playing for all of you as soon as it is safe to do so.
Remember to take care of one another.
See you soon,
Glenn, Brendan & Stephen
Among the newest generation of bands in the tradition of West Coast psychedelia, Triptides have blossomed into the role of elegant adventurers.
Led by guitarist, keyboardist and singer Glenn Brigman, with drummer Brendan Peleo-Lazar and bassist/guitarist Stephen Burns, the trio is continually discovering their sound through a complex map of familiar influences and bold choices in tonality, structure and texture.
This is a transformation long in the making. Starting in 2010 in the college town of Bloomington, Indiana, Brigman was making albums as Triptides with roommates and friends in a raw, Beach Boys-meet-Cleaners-From-Venus cassette-induced haze. Their albums Psychic Summer,Sun Pavilionand Colorsmade a mark and paved the way for greater things.
As the band moved West, so did their influences, and Los Angeles brought out a more sophisticated element in Triptides. Doors-inspired organ flourishes and driving, Stereolab-esque movements melded with the spirit of The Byrds in the Fifth Dimensionto bring a potent melodic punch in the form of 2017’s Afterglowand 2018’s Visitors. All the while, the group developed their live sound touring and playing festivals in the US and Europe. 2018 also brought about Brigman’scollaborationwithL. A.’s SamiraWinter. Triptides and Winter created the tropicália-inspired Estrela Mágicaand toured the US, now with Burns and Peleo-Lazar bringing an exciting new dynamic to the band.
As a trio on stage and in the studio, Triptides have opened up a new sonic world. Their live sound is bold, dynamic, synchronized chaos. On their records, they are adventurous and surprising—winning Shindig! magazine’s Single of the Year with the undeniably heady “Nirvana Now”—and forging a unique array of other singles throughout 2019 and 2020.
Triptides’ new LP Alter Echoes, forthcoming from the acclaimed Alive Natural sound Records, captures the trio at their strongest yet: at Hollywood’s Boulevard Studios — a room that has experienced sessions from The Standells’ Dirty Water, Pink Floyd’s The Wall, and Steely Dan’s Aja. That history and spirit is gloriously evident on Alter Echoes, which is a powerful blend of Floyd, Love, Badfinger and beyond. It is with this album that Triptides reveal themselves as the well-travelled adventurers they have become by continuing to push the edges of the definition of psychedelic.
