By no means a traditional folk-punk band, Roughneck Riot have been making their mark on the underground punk scene for nearly a decade with their heavy, melodic sound. Drawing influence from a menagerie of folk, punk and hardcore bands and praised for their high octane live performances, they're intent on highlighting socio-political issues of the 21st century to a new generation of punks.
We’re a completely useless bunch of reprobates clinging dearly to the remnants of our youthful enthusiasm. We’ve relentlessly gigged and toured for 12 years and whilst we now despise music, gigs and socialising in all forms, we don’t know any different and couldn’t possibly consider leading normal, productive lives. Fuelled by self-loathing and alcoholism, we’re begrudgingly working on a new album which centres around the themes of nihilism, self-deprecation and a general hatred for the human race. Catch us at a gig somewhere in the UK or mainland Europe, probably sat in our van smoking anything we can get our hands on, drinking warm cans of Fosters and discussing how shit all the other bands are and wondering why people keep assuming we’re Irish.
