HOT-TIPPED RISING BRIT-ROCK CREW RELEASE STUNNING NEW RECORD AND ANNOUNCE UK TOUR!
Born in the summer of 2010 in North Lincolnshire, Skarlett Riot are a brazen four-piece female fronted Hard rock unit who deliver the melody and grit of Halestorm and Courtney Love fused with the muscular garage rock’n’roll guile of early Guns N Roses. Spitting out fiery riffage and infectious hooks, the northern noiseniks boost a sound that is both truly captivating and anthemic, packed to the brim with attitude and a confidence that belies their age.
Composed of Skarlett (Vocals and Guitar), Danny (Lead Guitar/Backing Vox), Tom (Bass/ Backing Vox), and Luke (Drums), Skarlett Riot have shared the stage with the likes of Taking Dawn, Crashdiet, Glamour of the Kill, Black Spiders, Forever Never, Deaf Havana, and Francesqa. The High-flying foursome have also recently played Tramlines Festival organised by the Arctic Monkeys and headlined by UK eternal-rockers, Ash.
The band’s debut EP, released late 2010, received glowing accolades from everyone from Metal Hammer and Classic Rock Magazine, to Powerplay and Big Cheese. Along the way, the Scunthorpe starlets also notched up the prize for winning the best overall band of 2011 by Playmusic Magazine. Skarlett Riot have also received broad radio play from Kerrang!, BBC, Total Rock, Total Biker FM, and are currently endorsed by Fernandes Guitars (home to Journey, Judas Priest, Marilyn Manson, Motorhead, and Scorpions).
Skarlett Riot now unleash their eagerly awaited sophomore EP this spring. Packing a hearty punch to the senses, their EP ‘Villain’ fully concocts an acute mixture of soaring high-energy melodies with dark aggressive undertones. With a tour on the horizon in support of the newly released EP Skarlett Riot are sure to gain a rising new fan-base and carve their name as one of the bands to rise in 2012.
