With the hunger and desire to play full on, high-energy, sex-fueled Rock and Roll, the members of The Tip founded the band in Nashville, Tennessee in the summer of 2014. Not wasting any time, the band quickly hit the road and released its full-length self-titled debut album in 2015. Persistent touring activity around the United States, countless home town shows and the 2016 album release of the album “Sailor’s Grave” led to opening spots for The Darkness, Buckcherry, Sebastian Bach, Geoff Tate’s Operation Mindcrime, The Last Vegas and back to back festival appearances at Rocklahoma.
In 2017 the band continued to work the road in the U.S. and released “Sailor’s Grave” in Europe on German label SAOL, which caught the attention of local and other European rock media resulting in many positive reviews in publications such as Classic Rock, Metal Hammer and Rock It! Magazine (*see press). In 2018, the band appeared at the annual Kid Rock Cruise after being hand picked by Kid Rock himself during a Nashville encounter, toured the North and South East and opened for L.A. Guns in Nashville. The Tip kicked off 2019 with its first European Tour, bringing its wild and dynamic Blues and Rock n Roll to 13 countries in 50 shows, including the Camden Rocks Festival in London and is already looking forward to return to Europe in the Spring and Summer of 2020!
The band’s music is a manifest to its no-nonsense, adrenaline fueled, hard-rocking attitude. As the song proclaims: “What you see is what you get, No we ain’t fakin’ it!”
