((RIPS)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Written by Patrick McNamara

Rips is a rock and roll band from Brooklyn, NY U.S.A.

But you can call them punk or say they're post something or mention how you love garage rock if you want.

Just call them good.

Because they are.

Since forming sometime circa 2013 A.D. Rips has played a TON of shows -- we've listed like 25 of them just this year in NYC alone! (sharing bills with a bunch of good bands, including Rockness faves Parquet Courts, B Boys, WALL, Future Punx, Tomorrow's Tulips, Washer, PC Worship and Navy Gangs).

As of this writing (12:24 PM) the year isn't even over yet but we've got ourselves a strong “Hardest-Working Bands of 2016" candidate right here (see: Hardest Working '15 and Hardest Working '14).

Stay tuned...!

You may now blast two RIPPERS (make the most of the opportunities given to you) from the band's upcoming full-length debut (produced by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts ←-- that's a good band too).

I'm definitely glad we had this talk on the blob today.

Good bands make best conversations.
