Five-piece dirty rock 'n' roll blues mavericks

Hailing from Manchester, Gorilla Riot have built their reputation as hard-living, hard-playing, genre-straddling rockers. They're known for raucous blues-based music that combines elements of grunge, country and stoner rock to create a high-energy sonic experience. 

Frontman Arjun Bhishma brought together the best talent in the city to form the band including Liam Henry and Charly T, both on guitars and vocals, as well as Will Lewis on skins and Deggy on bass. Together they offer a three-pronged guitar attack with multi-part vocal harmonies.

Gorilla Riot are equally at home acoustically or electrically – drawing tears of joy in one moment and then heartfelt lament the next during their live shows. They've tour extensively across the UK, Spain and France.

Along with the release of their 2020 album Peach, Gorilla Riot have had the song Bad Son included on the chart-topping compilation album Earache Presents New Wave Of Rock 'n' Roll.  

The band announced the arrival of their four-song EP Solace in September 2021, followed by a run of shows co-headlining with Doomsday Outlaw in February 2022. 


Gorilla Riot are touring the UK from 10 – 19 February 2022 in support of their new EP Solace and ahead of a new full-length studio album.

Gorilla Riot will be visiting the following UK cities on their 2022 tour:

  • London
  • Liverpool
  • Birmingham
  • Leicester
  • Sheffield

Gorilla Riot are co-headlining with Doomsday Outlaw for a run of dates in 2022.

Tickets for Gorilla Riot’s 2022 tour dates go on sale from 10:00 on Friday 6 August 2021.
