The Roughneck Riot are a 6 piece Punk band from Warrington UK.
Influenced by traditional Folk music from around the world, we are reinventing and rewriting Folk music to make sense to our lives today. We write music for people, regardless of race, nationality, age, gender or sexuality. In a country with a government trying to destroy it, and a music industry run by money hungry people who couldnt care less about musicians, we are here as a voice amongst many in the scene ready to be heard.
We are here to play Folk Punk music.
From nowhere & everywhere. This is our Day.
“The Roughneck Riot generate a steam-rolling wall of melodic noise that hits you like a right hook. Combining all the right elements – Pogues, Flogging Molly, Levellers, Johnny Cash and The Clash, this is contemporary hardcore folk driven by youth and boundless energy. If this lot don’t make you smile then you’re surely deaf or dead!” - R2/Rock’n’Reel Magazine
