Slow Riot to release “Trophy Wife” single on April 15th 2016

Brooding post-punk trio, Slow Riot, are releasing their new single, “Trophy Wife”, via Straight Lines Are Fine on April 15th, 2016.
“Trophy Wife” follows hot on the heels of the impressive critical reaction that accompanied the band’s debut EP, “Cathedral”, a record that took the post-punk influences of Slow Riot - Gang of Four, Television, Wire – and infused them with more contemporary bands such as Girl Band and Future of the Left. The new single builds on Slow Riot's original sound with infectious hooks and a driving rhythm, recalling acts such as Eagulls and Savages in forging new-wave dance beats with dark, soaring undertones.

The Empire Strikes - 1983

The Empire Strikes is a newcomer from Finland which started in 2012. After the release of two EPs & various live shows, the guys started working on their debut full-length album. The band has several influences from the Scandinavian rock & roll scene and from bands like The Hellacopters, Gluecifer, Imperial State Electric, The Flaming Sideburns and so on. Of course, the roots of this kind of music are in the late 60s/early 70s but that’s another story. Moreover, the guys have added a few early NWOBHM elements to their music, thing which makes the final outcome even more desirable at places. The production is rockin’ and in-your-face.
