About the event
Abdulisms recommends this show absolutely on the merit of the support acts. We've seen Tripsun live and have a lot of love for our guy Hassan who seems to be consistently on the hop from one show to another. If the rest of the acts are anything like Trpisun and the lads. This will be one not to miss for the Manchester crew. Check out some writing on the boys and their latest single by EarNutrition's very own Matt Speer below:
Tripsun have been a long time coming. With the band morphing into their new moniker after years of it being the “go-to” nickname of the London four-piece, playing raucous shows across the UK cut with a few live renditions of newer work. For those who don’t know, Tripsun’s back catalogue in a raw, honest and multifaceted stylistic fashion, cascades through timely blasts of classic Pop and Skate Punk, riff-heavy Indie-Punk and subtly harder influences as it cuts an existential swathe through what it is to live through the every day as well as that of more personal climes innate to the band.
Tripsun’s work is dotted with bursts tempo. The band’s work is perhaps best known, especially if you’ve seen them live, for their crowd-corralling sing-a-longs. However, opening with this harder drive, Tripsun’s urgency to get back to it, to improve and to live true to themselves as a band is as measured, critical and defiant as ever. Their latest masterfully shifts from thunderous tempo to heavy-set rhythms and instrumentally reserved refrains, all perfected to stage Hassan’s and Zandro’s now household vocal interplay.
The band are playing harder, faster and more urgent and their continued per-release refinement has reached a new altitude. All of this is aided by Daly George’s production which is to the standard you would expect it to be. Tripsun may well tick all the Pop and Indie-Punk boxes with their sharp leads, bouncing chorus’ and singalongs but they are also still a Punk-Rock band in the more recognisably stylistic sense, with said production capturing it all.
