The tour is set to coincide with the release of a new album, SALVATION, the cover of which has only recently been teased online by the band. The cover art was conceived and created by fast-rising street artist, and bassist of Gorilla Riot, Deggy.

Deggy, said of the tour announcement, “We are really stoked to be heading back out on the road this October. We have a great mix of venues on the run, some new to us, along with a few old favourites and we will be playing some tunes from our new album, but more importantly, we can’t wait to have a great time with you lovely lot!”

Gorilla Riot are a 5-piece, dirty rock n’ roll blues machine. Utilising a dual-pronged guitar attack with multi-part vocal harmonies; they play raucous blues-based rock, combining elements of grunge, stoner, and country to create a full-on high-energy sonic experience.

Mainman, Arjun Bhishma, surrounded himself with the best talent in Manchester to form Gorilla Riot. Arjun, is joined by Charly T. (guitars & vocals), Deggy (bass), and Matt Talbot on skins with Luci Vee joining the band on stage as backing vocalist.

They have built their reputation as a hard-living, hard-playing, genre-straddling rock n roll band that can draw forth tears of joy one minute and then the pain of a heart-felt lament, the next.

They have entered the charts twice in recent times… on ‘Earache Records presents New Wave Of Rock N Roll’ compilation album, as well as NWOCR Volume 1 – both hitting Top #10 in their respective charts.

Equally at home acoustically or electrically, they have toured extensively with headline shows in Spain and France, and across the UK. That reputation saw them invited to join sold out shows with REEF and also Airbourne and The Darkness.

Gorilla Riot released a 4-song acoustic EP entitled SOLACE, ahead of this new full-length studio album, SALVATION, due in October 2024.
