ROCKY SHADES WILDSIDE RIOT / Bio

WILDSIDE RIOT DEBUT ALBUM 'NO SECOND TAKE' BRINGS A NEW SOUND TO RETRO ROCK AND ROLL.

Fronted by the Godfather of Glam Metal Rocky Shades - the charismatic ex-frontman of shock rock titans 'Wrathchild UK', it's no surprise that Wildside Riots' debut album is full of classic hook lines that will shake the rock out of any audience.

Bringing into the ring their own brand of heavy but melodic rock and roll, Wildside Riot is an extended development of Rocky's tongue-in-cheek musical past. These boys have an incredible live energy that has excited a new attitude in audiences new and old.

Though they were born from the Glam stylings of Rocky, Wildside Riot are not all big hair and wild tattoos. The other band members, Gaz Wilde on drums, Joss Riot and Jimmy Gunn on Guitars and Marty Maelstrom on Bass, bring a plethora of musical influences to WR that span many genres; having cut their musical teeth in just about everything from biker metal bands to top class tribute acts. But from hard rock to hair metal they have managed to hold onto the crowd pleasing melodic choruses of retro rock and roll that make you want to stand up and sing. It is this that appeals to the many kinds of audiences they face and has given them a live longevity that should keep them in your faces for a long time to come.

Their debut album 'No Second Take' has kept on pleasing fans and new listeners with continued sales from their official release and launch night in Camden, London, UK. Wildside Riot are now embarking on various support gigs and festivals, with a second album on the horizon to be released and distributed by Cargo Records. If you haven't already tasted the layers of guitar, bass, drums and vocal that is Wildside Riot, now is the time to grab a slice. What are you afraid of?....It's only Rock n' Roll!!
