Gorilla Riot are a 5-piece dirty rock n’ roll blues machine from Manchester, England. They play raucous blues based rock, combining elements of grunge, stoner and country to create a full-on high energy rock show. Created by mainman, Arjun Bhishma, he surrounded himself with the best talent in Manchester to form Gorilla Riot - creating a 3-prong guitar attack with multi-part harmonies. Arjun, Liam Henry (guitars & vocals), Charly T. (guitars & vocals), James Degnen (bass) & David Thomas (drums), began songwriting and soon entered the studio to record their debut self-titled album. This set them on their path to deliver their blues-drenched dirty sound that evolved into the acclaimed EP, Six Shots Down in 2017. Equally at home acoustically or electrically they release their next studio work on 18h May 2018. American Honey Vol 1 sees the guys extend their sound and song-writing prowess with 3 new songs plus an exquisite re-working of their hit song, Last Hymn.
