Rocky Shades’ Wildside Riot have released a brand new video for “Wildside Riot”, the first single from the band’s upcoming ‘No Second Take’ album.

England’s Wildside Riot is a new five-piece melodic sleaze band fronted by Rocky “Wrekkless” Shades, the charismatic ex-frontman of glam titans Wrathchild. Joining Shades in the new project are Joss Riot (lead guitar), Jimmy Gunn (rhythm/co-lead guitar), James Crofts (bass) and Gaz Wilde (drums).

Wildside Riot have an incredible live energy and bring an amazing attitude to a rapidly declining lack lustre music scene. These guys are not all big hair and tattoos — the music spans many genres while maintaining its retro roots. Heavy rock ‘ roll and interesting song structures will appeal to many different kinds of people, thus giving Wildside Riot a longevity which should keep them in your faces for a very long time to come.

The members of Wildside Riot cut their musical teeth in just about everything from biker metal bands to top class world tribute bands incorporating Van Halen, Queen, ABBA, Bon Jovi and the Blues Brothers. The band are currently wrapping up their debut album ‘No Second Take’, due for release later this year.
