RISKEE AND THE RIDICULE – Combining grime, hip hop, punk and metal influences to make an exciting and unique sound, this gang are a tour-de-force band of politics, protest and punk who practice what they preach and are spearheading such a charge.

Riskee and the Ridicule fuse seemingly disparate genres of music to create a focused assault that hits you in the heart like a hammer with its combination of instant anthems, insanely catchy songs and intelligent, socially conscious lyrics.

Pioneers of the grime punk subculture, this is a band once seen you won’t forget. Riskee has a determined sharpness of tone; cynical and sarcastic, akin to Scroobius Pip. It’s an incendiary thing, brimming with passion and intensity.

Special guest support TBC
