NASHVILLE’S GLAM ROCKERS THE TIP ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM & NEW TOUR!
JUNE 18th – JULY 8th
EAST COAST / MID WEST
NashTray Productions present South In Your Mouth Summer 2015 Tour featuring
NashTray Productions’ artists and Nashville local Glam rockers The TIP release their self-titled debut album and announce an East Coast / Mid West “South In Your Mouth” tour! This latest tour revisit the same markets the band first hit in November 2014 with LA’s Hammered Satin (Burger Records) in support of their “Killin’ It Wasted EP”. The new album, The TIP, released by NashTray Productions’, expands upon the first release with more visceral rock tones, gritty vocals and heavy blues riff-age. Also featured on the album is Grammy award-winning multi-instrumentalist Cory Younts from Old Crow Medicine Show/Jack White. The tour begins June 18th at Star Bar in Atlanta, and wraps up July 8th at Reggies in Chicago.
The band recently filmed pilot episodes about the Nashville music scene with former MTV VJ Jesse Camp, headlined the grand opening of The Basement East, opened for Sebastian Bach (Skidrow) and released a music video for the single “Welcome To The Night”.
The seeds of The TIP were sown when Nashville Rock n’ Roll party boys the Carl Brothers, Benny and Dixie, began jamming with local guitarist Ricky Dover Jr during the winter of 2013. The bluesy vocals, harmonica and guitar of Benny Carl along with the pounding rhythm of Dixie Carl drumming found a perfect match with Ricky Dover Jr’s swanky guitar bends. After a chance encounter with bassist extraordinaire Drew Uldrich knocking on the door of their rehearsal space, The TIP officially sprouted in the spring of 2014. By June the band were playing their first show at legendary Atlanta strip-club The Claremont Lounge with an independently released four song, “Killin’ It Wasted EP” already under their belts. Then in November of the same year the band went on an East Coast / Mid West tour with Hollywood’s Hammered Satin (Burger Records). After linking up with NashTray Productions in East Nashville, and the untimely death of their would-be producer Ikey Owens (Jack White/Mars Volta), the band recorded their self-titled debut album in the early weeks of 2015. With continued success of playing regional showcases, The TIP is now set to release their debut album in the summer of 2015. Once the summer tour is completed, the band looks to the West Coast for a string of dates and to record a new music in the latter half of the year.
