The Riptide Movement Release Video For Brand New Single, ‘Is This What We’re All Living For?’

Dublin rock band The Riptide Movement have released the brand new video for their latest single, ‘Is This What We’re All Living For?’ which is out now.

Following a fantastic headline performance at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre late last month, and in the middle of their extensive ‘Something Special’ tour, four-piece The Riptide Movement are flying high on the success of their latest EP, also named ‘Something Special’. This has proven a triumphant return to form for The Riptide Movement, with the EP to date amassing more than 170,000 streams on Spotify since its release. Most recent releases, ‘I’ll Be There’, and ‘Something Special’, have found their way into playlists all over Irish national radio.

Newest single, ‘Is This What We’re All Living For?’ is a high energy, virtual storm of terrifyingly awesome riffs, as well as lyrics  all of us will be able to relate to.

15 Nov – Mike the Pies, Kerry
16 Nov – Cyprus Avenue, Cork
22 Nov – Dolans Warehouse, Limerick

The Riptide Movement have four studio albums to their name, with the Number 1, gold selling, ‘Getting Through’ being nominated for “The RTÉ Choice Music Prize”.

Having toured extensively internationally on the back of critically-acclaimed releases ‘All Works Out’, ‘You And I’, ‘Elephant In the Room’, ‘Changeling’, ‘I’ll Be There’, and latest release, ‘Something Special’, the Dublin four piece have also released an environmentally conscious web series called, ‘Plastic Oceans’, in association with Clean Coasts, which can be streamed from their website.
