Hailing from the Newcastle music scene are a female fronted touring Hard Rock band by the name of Riff X. It’s a risk aiming to successfully combine influences of Classic Rock, Blues, Punk and Metal all at once, but this is what Riff X do – writing music they love and infecting those around them with it.
Formed in March 2010, the band started to conquer their local circuit building a reputation for themselves as one of the hardest rocking bands around. After a line-up change in February 2011 the band embraced that reputation and started building on it, delivering energy, enthusiasm and rock ‘n’ roll.
2011 was an eventful year for Riff X; seeing them start gaining nationwide recognition, touring through England and Scotland, winning the annual Bubbles battle of the bands and sharing a stage with the likes of Gallows and Funeral for a Friend at the Cockermouth Rock Festival. Their debut EP ‘Bruises’ was received with high admiration, being described as “the instrument to propel Riff X to national attention” in a Deviant magazine review.
The band are now geared up for 2012; with another new addition to the band, a new single, a fine-tuned live set, and they’re hitting the road hard – gigging relentlessly, showing the world what rock n’ roll should be!
Watch out for Riff X, both on record and especially in a live environment. In their words, “we pride ourselves on being a live band. We want to get our music out there, tour as much as possible and make as many friends and fans along the way, because it’s what we love to do.”
In short, a driving beat, infectious riffs, melodic vocals and an unrivalled passion is what makes Riff X – and they’re coming your way!
“If you like your Rock catchy, heavy and passionate then Riff-X are your one stop shop for sure.” – Randy ‘Wicker Man’ Demerera.
