Send in the Clowns


Manchester’s dirty blues rock maverick’s Gorilla Riot, will release a new single and video – Kerosene Clown – on Fri 09 Feb 2018.

The song is taken from their acclaimed Six Shots Down EP and will be available from all leading digital and streaming services. It will also be accompanied by a lyric video shot & produced by guitarist, Charly T. featuring footage from their home town of Manchester.

Gorilla Riot play raucous blues based rock, combining elements of grunge, stoner and country to create a full sonic high energy show that is equally at home as full electric or played acoustically. Indeed, Gorilla Riot will be headlining the acoustic stage at this year’s Breaking Bands Festival.

The guys most recently sold out the famous Night & Day Café in Manchester and continue to tour up and down the UK.

The Kerosene Clown cover art was especially produced by Eve Gittens with a brief to create a nightmarish, gnarly clown.

Mainman, Arjun Bhishma, said, “Kerosene Clown has a dirty swaggering riff, matched by the lyrics… ‘Screaming loud but still no sound’. This song does not want to tickle you under the chin, it wants to rip your head off!.”
