2 piece alternative punk rock band from Birmingham.
Over the past 12 months since we decided to start this crazy journey of being in a band at the end of 2015 we decided we’ll play a couple of shows and see what happens, maybe record a song or two.
Well we ended up last year playing over 40 shows all over the UK supporting such bands as CJ Ramone, The Soap Girls, Anti Nowhere League, King Blues, XSLF (Ex Stiff Little fingers) & Sweet Little Machine to name a few and recording a couple of DIY singles. Establishing ourselves as an energetic, enthusiastic live band, whilst getting compared to such bands as Slaves and Royal Blood.
SickoftheRiot was featured in various music publications and have been labelled “Electrifying Grunge!” and “Excellent, a unique punk band!”
