Tripsitter began in 2014 out of Innsbruck, Austria, drawing heavily from black metal, shoegaze & hardcore to create a unique sound. Their hometown, a large cold dark mountainous city, surrounded by cinematic views, perhaps has just as much as an influence on their style then anything else though.
They recorded their debut LP ‘The Other Side Of Sadness’ live in a cabin in Austria. They wanted to capture their music in a moment, a time capsule. Something that was their for a second then gone. They believe this impulsive way of recording highlights their flaws and skills perfectly and ties into the running themes of the album showcasing real human perfections and imperfections.
The album was then mixed at the Ranch Production House in the UK by Lewis Johns (Funeral For A Friend, Employed To Serve, Svalbard) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audio Siege to Master (Converge, Code Orange, Defeater).
“The Other Side of Sadness is more than just Music, It’s our own evaluation of the mind. The individual problems and reflected experiences of the four band members tell a cathartic story of depression leading through the album like a red thread. It is a struggle between hope and despair. The entire album is composed like an audiobook presenting a symbiosis of music and text.”
