Trip Hazard

Trip Hazard

BandRockAlternative

A fine blend of alternative guitar driven pop/rock. Catchy hooks and memorable, rousing choruses. Intelligent, thoughtful lyrics. Sometimes introspective but always accessible. One of their great strengths is the ability to retain all the energy of their live performance on their recorded work.

Biography

Trip Hazard emerged from a back garden bunker in Co. Meath around 6 years ago with singer Dave Conway firmly at the helm. Navigating his way through a few line up changes Trip Hazard released their first EP 'I Keep Falling' to very positive critical acclaim. Following up on this success the 2nd EP release 'Stumble' proved to be another hit with the critics and in January 05 the band (Dave, Robbie and Eugene) started work recording the debut album 'Stay'. Along the way Paul Maguire joined to add extra beef on guitars and the recording was released on the bands own label 'Good Trip Records' in October '05 recieving fantastic reviews from Music Mags and National newspapers (See reviews in Media Section). April '06 saw the band back in the studio to record new material for forthcoming EP release, work has also begun on album #2. The new tunes have much harder edge to them, but also the melodies and lyrical depth which has become a Trip Hazard trademark. Demo versions of Daughter Earth and forthcoming single The Next Life have already received national airplay from RTE 2FM (Dan Hegarty) and Today FM (Alison Curtis' Last Splash)
