Triptides is a sun-warped psychedelic group from Los Angeles, California.

Biography

Triptides began as a bedroom project, with Glenn Brigman (guitar/vocals) and Josh Menashe (guitar/vocals) swapping ideas. Since then the band has grown, shifted and evolved, taking on a life of its own in the process.

The first two EP's (Triptides, Tropical Dreams) as well as their first full-length (Psychic Summer) were fundamental in allowing the band to understand home recording techniques while creating lush beach-pop psychedelia. 

2012's Sun Pavilion LP saw Menashe and Brigman honing their craft as songwriters and experimenting more with production and 8-track tape machines.  

2013's Predictions though, is much more confident. Seeming to completely grasp how to use the studio as an instrument, Triptides slice together garage-punk, elements of psych and 60s West Coast pop.

Yet this isn't some retro experiment. 'Predictions' is imbued with a real sense of character, with Triptides able to impact their own identity onto their influences.

In 2014 the band did extensive touring of the United States and were invited to play "Rock In Rio" in Lisbon, Portugal sharing the bill with The Rolling Stones, Queens of the Stone Age, and others. 

In 2015 the band relocated to Los Angeles where they picked up Bryant Fox (bass) and Brian Dove (drums). That same year they released their 4th LP Azur on Paris based label Requiem Pour Un Twister. The album shows another side of the band where ideas are drawn from 80's groups such as the Cleaners From Venus and The Wake in addition to their normal 60's psychedelic influences.

In the Fall of 2016, Triptides joined British psychedelic group Temples on the West Coast leg of their US tour. 

Their new record Afterglow will be dropping early next year on Requiem Pour Un Twister.
