Members of North of America, Holy Fuck, and Long Weekends form CRYPTORIPS ...share two songs and announce tour dates with the Swirlies

Press release provided by Pigeon Row

Cryptorips emerges with their debut offering, two songs available as a pay what you want download. First single "Glenwood G.G" wields frenetic guitars, ganky basslines, and urgent trade-off vocals. 

Formed, de-formed, adjusted, and aligned somewhere between 2014 and the present, Dartmouth's Cryptorips features a seasoned cast of indie rock veterans including Mark Mullane (North of America), Matt McQuaid (Holy Fuck), Adam Hartling (Long Weekends) and Rob Oxner (celebrity barber). Combining shades of post-punk with noisy angular riffs, the band finds its home in the lines between Fugazi's Repeater and Sonic Youth's Washing Machine all while channeling contemporaries such as METZ, The Blood Brothers, and Viet Cong.


Upcoming Cryptorips Tour Dates
July 14 - Toronto, ON @ Drake Hotel Underground*
July 15 - Montreal, PQ @ Bar Le Ritz P.D.B*

* = w. Swirlies
