TRIPTIDES is a Los Angeles based psychedelic rock group led by multi-instrumentalist Glenn Brigman. It began in the summer of 2010 as a series of sun-drenched home recorded tape machine experiments. The band has since released six full length records and a number of singles and EPs. Their music dives through realms of sonic clairvoyance complete with melted guitars, swirling farfisa organs and vocals like sunlight through the fog. The band’s latest record “Visitors” was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, with AllMusic calling it “their best sounding record to date” and LA Record describing it as “an expansive expedition into the undercurrent of the late sixties.” From international tours to performances at Desert Daze and Barcelona Psych Fest, the band has continued at a strong pace and shows no signs of slowing down. 2019 saw the release of two new singles, "Nirvana Now” (Hypnotic Bridge Records) and "Call of Creation" (Greenway Records). They returned to Europe a summer tour including performances at Astral Fest (UK) and Plisskën Festival (GR). In September the group returned to the US and Canada for more tour dates. The band has a new record coming out in 2020.
