RIOT HORSE started with the current line-up in 2013, inspired by bands like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and The Black Crowes. It's all about dirty, hard grooving, 70' inspired hard rock. The band members of Riot Horse come from quite different musical backgrounds but share a common love for the Classic Rock genre.
The debut album "This is who we are" was released on the Metalville label in 2014, and received great reveiws from all over the world.
RIOT HORSE got a wild card to play at Sweden Rock Festival 2014, in front of a really big audience and though they already had a reputation as a great live band in their home area, the show at Sweden Rock Festival gave the opportunity to show a larger audience what RIOT HORSE is all about. This led to more shows in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, London and the great festival Hard Rock Hell in Wales.
In 2015 they became Swedish champions when they won the Sweden part of the global rock band competition Hard Rock Rising, where they were voted as No.1 out of 600 bands!
In the summer of 2015 RIOT HORSE had the honor of playing at the Hard Rock Cafe Stockholm's 30 year anniversary celebration in the Royal Garden in Stockholm.
During 2016 RIOT HORSE have been working on songs for the second album set to be released in spring 2017.For more information, please visit www.riothorse.com
