NEW RELEASE DATE: RIOT (V) – new album »Mean Streets« due out on April 12, 2024; second digital single available for pre-saving!

With brand new track ‘High Noon,’ US cult metallers RIOT (V) keep racing down the road brilliantly. The high-speed anthem has gained way more than 100,000 views on YouTube, followed by solid streaming numbers – all that in just a few days. Although they’re working on the launch of »Mean Streets« with full throttle, the band need to take a redirection until unleashing their new album which is now set to be released on April 12, 2024 via Atomic Fire Records, followed by supporting live shows (to be announced next month). But fans don’t have to worry as RIOT (V) also have — besides album pre-order options — kicked-off the pre-save campaign for second single, ‘Feel The Fire,’ which will be available digitally from January 26, 2024. Don’t miss it:

Stream/purchase the track:

»Mean Streets« contains 12 tracks which were recorded by Bruno Ravel in New Jersey. Ravel also mixed the album while Bart Gabriel took care of its mastering. Artwork was provided by Gyula Havancsák (ACCEPT, STRATOVARIUS, BRAINSTORM etc.) who captured the galloping style of the new material skillfully – without missing the band’s typical seal style, of course.
