Our Story

Roughneck Riot have been making their mark on the underground punk scene since 2005 with their dynamic and melodic sound. Drawing influence from a menagerie of folk, punk and hardcore bands, and praised for their high-octane live performances, Roughneck Riot are one of the most unique and exciting bands in the UK Punk scene. 

Since their inception, Roughneck Riot have been trailblazing across the UK and Europe, playing well over 1000 shows, and earning a reputation as a hard-working and well-travelled live tour-de-force. 

Staunchly anti-fascist, always anti-dickhead. 

Following the 2022 release of their album “Burn it to the Ground” through SBÄM Records, Roughneck Riot are eager to cathartically scream and sweat their frustrations away to a post-Brexit apocalypse.  

Rounding the year of with a month long tour of mainland Europe with ska-punk legends Talco, Roughneck show no signs of slowing down any time soon. 

2023 will see the band hitting festivals and clubs all over the UK and Europe and working on new material for album number 5.
