“His son Rip, an urchin begotten in his own likeness, promised to inherit the habits, with the old clothes of his father.”
— Washington Irvin "Rip Van Winkle"
These are the tales of Rip Junior, the sound of nostalgia that you haven't heard before, reviving the raw, unadulterated sounds of the rock underground with driving rhythm that lives and breathes in chaotic melody.
This alternative indie rock band formed in the spring of 2016 after meeting in Jacksonville, FL and quickly got to work.
By the end of the summer of 2016, Rip Junior had recorded and released their first demo titled 'Carriage House', recorded by the one and only Jim DeVito at Retrophonics Studios in St. Augustine.
During the fall of 2017, the band decided to take recording into their own hands, recording and producing their first album 'A Wolf in Human Clothing'.
Their music has been described as tight and heavy alternative indie rock, with hints of psychedelic, grunge, and punk. If you were to ask the band though, they just want to play music...
Rip Junior is currently working on new material, set for release this spring.
