FRIDAY 5TH AUGUST - DIAMOND LIVE LOUNGE
It’s fair to say that UK quartet Skarlett Riot don’t lack confidence. As anyone that’s had the pleasure of witnessing this young four-piece live will attest to.
In an already jam-packed career Skarlett Riot have wowed audiences at Download (earning a 4K live review from Kerrang!) , Reading, Leeds, Bloodstock, Hard Rock Hell and a host of other festivals. They've also shared stages across the UK with the likes of Funeral For A Friend, Gus G, Kamelot, Deaf Havana, The Darkness, Wednesday 13, Heaven’s Basement, Black Spiders, Taking Dawn, Glamour Of The Kill, plus many more.
Formed back in 2010, this female-fronted band were soon taking their local scene by storm with their powerful, riff-led songs, blending melody and grit with a muscular garage rock’n’roll backbone. Add to that an ear for infectious hooks, and you have a band that not only has bags of attitude but the songs to back them up!
Their first single from SR's debut album, the anthemic ‘Faded Memory’ saw the band earning support from Radio 1, who added the band to their daytime playlist and led to the band being featured on national shows from Sara Cox, Greg James, Scott Mills and Huw Stephens amongst others.
The band’s current 2015 EP 'We Are The Brave' led to glowing praise within the rock community; Big Cheese, Kerrang, Powerplay, were all glowing in their praise. The band released a music video in support of the EP which hit rotation on Scuzz TV earlier this year.
The band have enjoyed continued support from
Kerrang and Scuzz for the singles from their
acclaimed EP ' We Are The Brave'.
