Limerick’s brooding post-punk quartet, Slow Riot infuse post-punk influences - Gang of Four, Television, Wire - with more contemporary bands such as Girl Band and Future of the Left. Formed of Niall Clancy (bass, vocals), Aaron Duff (guitars) and Paul Cosgrave (drums), and having recently recruited a second guitarist in the form of Fonda's Liam O'Connor, early demos of ‘Demons’ and ‘Cooper’s Dream’ were immediately praised by fans and caught the attention of London label Straight Lines Are Fine, who in the summer of 2015 recorded their sell-out debut EP ‘Cathedral’ at the Manic Street Preachers’ FASTER studio in Cardiff with Kevin Vanbergen.
The band toured the UK at the start of 2017 and have multiple Ireland & UK dates throughout the summer, including another London headline show, this time at The Victoria. Earlier this year Slow Riot released their double A-side single ‘Voyeur / Burn In The City’, the first taste of new music from their debut album to released later in 2018. Slow Riot are at the forefront of an exciting new wave of Irish acts about to break through.
