Blame Culture

We are unbelievably proud to launch our second album Blame Culture, out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Deezer and Bandcamp, which was made possible by all our fans who pledged money on our Kickstarter Campaign, raising £5,000 to record our second studio album.

It has already received critical acclaim with Dan Stoten from The Punk Archive reviewing the album:

I seriously think that this is a special piece of music, a special piece of art that the world needs right now. Some of the highlights here aren’t just album highlights: they’re genre highlights, decade highlights. I’m so proud of this band for producing what can only be called a masterpiece.Blame Culture - Riskee And The Ridicule

This album is a result of a lot of hard work, sweat and tears culminating in it’s release now in early 2017. Building on our success of our first album Dawn Of The Dog in 2014, we have been touring across the UK and Europe visiting new places and gaining new experiences, which have helped to formulate this album. In 2016, we had our best year so far touring with the likes of The King Blues, The Skints and playing festivals like Blissfields and Undercover and then hitting the studio the last part of 2016.

On top of that, we have been heavily influenced by what is going on around us globally, both politically and socially and 2016 has been a year of huge change. In a recent interview with we gave a bit of an insight on the album:

Not being scared to say what you think is vital and if there was ever a time that music needed to say something, it’s now. With so much music around that says nothing and hypnotises everyone into stagnation, someone should be leading the opposing charge and reinvigorating people. A lot of people have lost their humanity and it’s a very sorry state of affairs. Blame Culture follows a story and brings a point across that anyone living through the political turmoil we are facing at the moment will understand.”

Earlier in the year we released singles Hipster, PARTY and recently in December, Banger to give you a taste of the album but we really proud of all the tracks on here and hope that you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it. We’ve got a massive 2017 coming up and this is the perfect start!

You can get the album now on iTunes and Bandcamp so get listening!
