The Strypes


Ireland's rock 'n' roll stalwarts The Strypes return with their second EP, 4 Track Mind, available digitally on August 19th, 2014. This makes for their first release under the new partnership between Photo Finish Records and Republic Records. The EP will feature 4 tracks previously not available in the US including "Hard to Say No", "So They Say", "Still Gonna Drive You Home", which was produced by famed musician Paul Weller and a US-exclusive cover of The Ramones' "Rockaway Beach". Supporting the EP, the band will launch a string of very special shows this August, commencing August 19th at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. Since bursting onto the scene last spring with their debut album, Snapshot, The Strypes have gone on to light up Austin during a string of explosive gigs at the SXSW Festival, perform on both The Late Show with David Letterman and Conan in the past year, and catch the attention of Rolling Stone.

The Strypes skidded into New York's Bowery Ballroom sounding like 'My Generation' and Five Live Yardbirds only came out yesterday and anyone muttering the words 'boy band' would be skinned alive..."
