UK’s dirty rock n blues mavericks, Gorilla Riot announce that their first full-length album, PEACH, is now available for pre-order at gorillariotband.com

PEACH is available in Digital, CD and Vinyl formats and released through Off Yer Rocka Recordings (OYR). Distribution via Cargo Records with a release date of Friday 31 January 2020. An album launch show will be held at Rebellion, Manchester, UK on Sat 08 Feb 2020.

The Riot’s frontman, Arjun Bhishma said, After our last EP many people put us in the ‘Southern Rock’ bracket. With this record we wanted to show that, although that genre certainly is an influence, it is one of many. You will hear from the first second of the first song that this is not just a Southern Rock record, even if it has elements of that to it. This record takes inspiration from a broader set of genres, from classic rock to grunge with a base in the blues.

“We wanted to show how we have progressed as a band in terms of groove and specific parts. The guitars in this are all intertwining around each other, whilst playing their own individual parts during each song. Having three guitars allows us to layer music in a way that can be recreated live. Therefore, everything you hear on this album is how it will be done live.

“We like to think that people will enjoy its immediacy but that it will also take a few listens to discover every nuance and subtlety.”

The album includes the two singles released so far, ‘Half Cut’ and ‘Young Guns’ along with 10 further brand new songs, with variations in running order across each of the formats.

 

Gorilla Riot are a 5-piece dirty rock n’ roll blues machine from Manchester, England. Using a 3-prong 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 show.

Created by mainman, Arjun Bhishma, he surrounded himself with the best talent in Manchester to form Gorilla Riot.  Arjun, Liam Henry (guitars & vocals), Charly T. (guitars & vocals), James Degnen (bass), have been recently joined by Will Lewis on skins.

Equally at home acoustically or electrically they recently played in Spain and France earlier this year, they then returned home for shows with fellow OYR act, MASSIVE and then as part of the recent Roadstars tour.

Founding THIN LIZZY guitarist ERIC BELL will release his new autobiography ‘Remembering – The Autobiography Before During And After THIN LIZZY‘ as Hardback and Audiobook, narrated by ERIC BELL in September via his exclusive Production team of the Edge productions and can pre-ordered here: www.oftheedgeproductions.com

Many years in the writing, this astonishing book, penned by Eric Bell himself, charts the life of one of the most iconic and influential guitarists in contemporary music.

Starting with his early life, details of which few people have ever had access to, this moving autobiography reveals Eric’s discovery of music and chronicles the influences that were responsible for his enduring love of the guitar. His journey culminated in the creation of one of the most loved and successful rock bands in history.

The book details landmark relationships with Van Morrison and Rory Gallagher along with many other legendary musicians. Eric talks about his life-long friendship with Gary Moore and takes you through a moment by moment account of the night that Thin Lizzy was born. Eric remembers a whole world of experiences with Philip and Brian as they planned to take over the world!

Eric shines a light on the chaotic yet meteoric rise of Thin Lizzy with sensational previously unheard stories of life on the road and in the studio. This autobiography uncovers the triumphs and the tragedies that accompanied Eric along the way, and the personal toll that they took, resulting in his dramatic and climactic exit from the band on New Years Eve 1973.

For the first time Eric discloses the struggles in the years that followed and recounts more staggering stories of life on the road in the USA with Jimi Hendrix‘s bassist Noel Redding.
Eric pulls no punches on telling the truth about the good and the bad times.

This emotionally charged and absorbing autobiography is a true and moving testimony of a giant amongst guitarists.
