Hailing from Cavan, Ireland in 2008 The Strypes have become famous for their searing brand of old-school rhythm and blues, and their astonishingly young age.

The Strypes started playing together before they were even teenagers, relentlessly gigging around Ireland. They arrived like a tin can full of firecrackers on the UK music scene in 2012; their debut album ‘Snapshot’ deserves to be filed next to other opening gambits by the likes of The Stones, The Yardbirds, Dr Feelgood and The Jam. 

They draw inspiration from 1960s blues boom and 1970s pub rock bands such as Dr. Feelgood, Eddie and the Hot Rods, The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Lew Lewis and Rockpile as well as the original bluesmen and rock 'n' roll artists such as Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin' Wolf and Little Walter, among others.

2015’s album ‘Little Victories’ saw The Strypes hit the road, travelling throughout the UK, Europe, and further afield to Japan on a whirlwind tour. Still barely into their twenties, their overworked tour bus eventually rolled up in their hometown of Cavan, just South of the Northern Irish border, in time for Christmas 2015. 

Since the release of Spitting Image, The Strypes have toured Europe, The US, Japan and spent the Summer of 2017 performing at festivals in the UK, Europe and Japan. They look forward to getting back on the road in early 2018, with a tour of Europe, supporting Paul Weller on his UK arena tour, a return to SXSW and a following tour of the US.

The Strypes have released two subsequent EPs since the release of the album. ‘The Demos EP’ featured acoustic versions of tracks from the album which demonstrate their versatility through familiar tracks performed in a softer manner, not often associated with the band. ‘Almost True’, released in late 2017 featured 3 brand new tracks and one live cover of Summertime Blues. In this EP, The Strypes showcase their now trademark accomplished playing ability with some of their wittiest lyrics yet whilst not forgetting how to be catchy.
