Gigs in 2022
Riskee And The Ridicule released their debut album, Dawn Of The Dog, in 2014 it propelled them to tour the UK and Europe multiple times, including momentous sets at Indigo in the iconic O2 Arena and The 100 Club in London as well as supporting The King Blues on their return tour in 2016 and again in 2017.
The social and political climates have changed even more drastically since the release of Dawn Of The Dog and Riskee and The Ridicule are acutely aware of it. They followed up with second album titled Blame Culture and it delivered honesty, energy and thought-provoking material that we all need today, as the band elaborates on:
“Not being scared to say what you think is vital and if there was ever time that music needed to say something, it’s now. With so much music around that says nothing, someone should be leading the opposing charge. The new album follows a story and brings a point across that anyone living through the political turmoil we are facing at the moment will understand.”
Now they have delivered their third album, Body Bag Your Scene, again made possible by the fans that has gone to the next level – taking the foundation of Dawn Of The Dog, the evolution of Blame Culture to deliver a mature, hard hitting sound. Catchy hooks matched by hard hitting lyrics on important social, political and racial matters pushes new boundaries for the band.
