RIFF ROCK Records
HARD ROCK // STONER/DOOM // SLUDGE
This London band (including former Dopefight frontman Owen Carty) have been turning heads on the UK’s burgeoning underground scene not least because of their combination of tie-dye and corpsepaint, but with a staggeringly heavy live show that has everyone who sees them agreeing that they’re about to become huge.
The band’s tongue-in-cheek approach belies their dedication to all things heavy and riff-shaped. A jaw-droppingly powerful live band, Bad Kush have already completed countless European tours including shows with Bongzilla and Boss Keloid, and repeated circuits of the UK’s underground scene since their inception in late 2014. Having supported the likes of Slabdragger, Dopethrone and Honky, audience members have picked up on the band’s vibe and now blow bubbles in appreciation of the band’s heaviest riffs.
Their debut album "Come & Chutney" is due in early 2018.
Since releasing their debut album "Possession" on Riff Rock in April 2016, London's Vodun have been growing from strength to strength and blowing audiences away all over Europe.
Their album launch show at London's Lexington was sold out in advance (see some footage here), and they've since gone on to play countless festivals across Europe including Hellfest, Bloodstock, Afropunk and Desertfest Antwerp. They've also toured the UK as main tour support for Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats as well as shows supporting Orange Goblin at Koko at the request of both bands.
Vodun will be recording their second album with regular collaborator Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Pixies, Opeth) later this year for release in spring 2018.
After seeing them play live, there was absolutely no hesitation in signing this amazing Milton Keynes duo.
Comprised of vocalist and drummer Tyler Hodges and guitarist Tom Dimmock, Tuskar's chemistry is unmistakable both live and in the studio. The two 20-year olds have grown up playing together in bands and have struck out on their own with material that owes as much to Conan and Sleep as it does bands like Behemoth and Darkthrone.
Their debut EP, recorded with Sam Thredder (Slabdragger) was released via Riff Rock on October 20th (order here). They'll be recording a follow-up with Thredder in the near future as well as a full-length for release in late 2018.
