Tripswitch play a heady mix of heavy Guitar driven music infused with dark samples, counter pointed by gentler, almost ambient sections. Tucked away in rural Lincolnshire UK and free from scene trends, the band draws on the seemingly disparate tastes of its individual members to create an eclectic brand of Metal influenced by Tool, Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Dredg and early Pendulum.
‘Wormhole’ is their new EP and is the follow up to 2009’s highly successful ‘Until.’ While it is without doubt the heaviest thing the band has so far released, it also features sublime rhythms, quirky time changes and massive sing-along choruses alongside the extra weighty down tuned riffs.
Tripswitch’s last EP ‘Until’ was immediately picked up for distribution by Code 7 through Plastic Head, garnered great reviews and even gained the band their first celebrity fan: Porn star Belladonna. A large promotional run followed its release, handled by Andy Copping at ACP, plus appearances on cover mounted CDs with Zero Tolerance and Terrorizer magazines.
Their live show had already won them an impressive array of support slots with the likes of Lostprophets, Skindred, Breed 77, Ghost of a Thousand, Earthtone 9 and Raging Speedhorn before they landed a coveted slot at Download Festival. The bands’ appearance was extraordinarily well received and that, coupled with the success of ‘Until’, helped Tripswitch step up to playing more shows in bigger venues nationwide.
