“They brought their A game for this show, that was obvious, and that resulted in this being the best of the now three Triple SP shows that I’ve seen. I loved the fact that they bridged so many of the songs together, it gave things an excellent flow. It was a superb show, and showed great musicianship, which is really kinda rounded out by Jacob Bobo. I hadn’t seen the band since he joined the fold, but he helps push things to another level. Jacob seems to be the missing component the band probably didn’t even know was missing. They’re a great band who, frankly, is a bit underrated here in the scene. I say that because they mainly play in Fort Worth, and their Dallas shows are a bit rare, and while they have a very dedicated fan base, which is the most important thing, it isn’t as big as it could be. Sure, that’s stuff nearly every local band struggles with, but hopefully the show this night and the night and the new record will start to turn the tides for Triple SP”

“Following them on the other stage was another band who hailed from my neck of the woods… Sorta. It was Triple SP, who had traveled down here from Fort Worth. Despite being from the same area as these guys, I’ve only seen them once, and even that wasn’t a true Triple SP, and lacked the bands true lineup, so this was going to be like seeing them for the first time ever. riple SP definitely brought the rock, and just as individual musicians they’re great at their craft. Both Bryan and Derek are stellar guitar players, Brian owned/killed it on the bass, and Alex was the right mix of methodical and aggressive in his drumming It was also good seeing a true Triple SP show. Bryan who did what ended up being his first show with the band the first time I saw them has definitely found his place in the group, and adds a whole other level to their live show. As for Derek he does quite a bit of moving around every chance he gets unlike most singers who also pull guitar duty, and has a good v”

“Alex got their 37 minute set going, leading them into their first song, “I Want it All”. That was a brand new song that will be on their forthcoming record, and they followed it with another newer one, “Symptom”, which Bryan started shredding on to begin and he’s a good guitarist, but man, he really cut loose on these songs and just destroyed them. “Never Again” came next, which Brian Scheid started with a sweet, low end bass riff., and then a couple more form their “Transmissions” album, “Step Aside” and I believe, “The Walk”, which is just a true blue rock song, that is also straight and to the point. Another new tune came next, and towards the end of it, They next did “Behind Your Back”, then one more new tune, It was a really good set they did. I know I’ve been wanting to see them for awhile, Alex and Brian are great at what they do, Bryan added a nice flare to the show, and John-Marc Stanley sang quite well. I’m gonna have to make it to another s”

“Article on 2012 Fort Worth Music Awards: "Probably the least underground nominee is Triple SP. Melodic vocals? Check. Driving guitar? Check. Hip-hop beats? Indeed. TSP has ’em all, making heavy music that’s as accessible as it is rockin’.”

“or some unknown reason –– increased access to recording technology, YouTube music lessons, whatever –– 2011 was full of pretty-damn-good-to-great albums. As I’ve said before, I can’t remember a year as plentiful. Whittling down choices to a top 10 (plus honorable mentions and top EPs) was a little tough. A lot of good, strong albums came out, but to register on my lofty list, an album had to meet or almost meet a triumvirate of certain quasi-ineffable criteria: dynamism (does the album flow well?), technical appropriateness (does the music sound the way it’s supposed to?), and originality (how would this album stack up against major labels’ best?). Here are the honorable mentions: Secret Ghost Champion’s wonderful Psychosomatic Immortality, Constant Seas’ Cycles, Earthquake Country’s Diaspora, War Party’s Year of the D-g, Beauxregard’s Gryphoemia, Holy Moly’s Grasshopper Cowpunk, Triple SP’s Transmission, and Jefferson Colby’s Dinosaurs and Fireworks.”

“If you check out their website (www.triplesp.net), the "about us" section has one statement that stands out among everything else: "The concept was hatched about forming a project that focuses on writing music we could personally identify with." Triple SP writes music that everyone can personally identify with, from gut-punching lyrics to energetic guitar riffs to catchy bass lines and steady drumbeats. Their songs cover the spectrum of human struggle, and "Transmissions" is an adrenaline punch to the mind and soul. While I had intentions of writing a much longer review for this album, I don't believe there is much else that need be said about the power and soul of this album. It gets added to a list I've started for 2011 centered around albums that leave me with a feeling of "radical self-empowerment," and having missed their shows one too many times, I am bound and determined to make the next one come hell or high water.”
