‘The Little Things’ clip & give-away

During four recent days of writing, composing and arranging songs for our second album in the most beautiful Normandy, France, we also shot a video for ‘The Little Things’. This is an album track that means a lot to us, but we never played it live. Maybe someday. Lay back & enjoy this one.



On our FaceBook page we organised a competition, where fans could win a BBR goodiebag by sharing this new video. Congrats, Jimmi Vos! The goodiebag is coming your way!

This Sunday: BBQ @ 7″ winner’s location

http://blackbottleriot.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/IMG_33831.jpgWhen we released our 7″ last June, we inserted some golden vouchers in the 7″. First prize: a very special BBQ for you and 25 (!) friends at your location, including loads of good meat & homemade salads, a couple of bottles of Jack Daniel’s and – of course – a live set by Black Bottle Riot.

Well ladies & gentlemen, we have a #1 winner. Upcoming Sunday we’ll be heading down to Ijmuiden to make sure the Philipsen family and their friends have one of the best parties of their lives! We’re very much looking forward to this, as this is again an opportunity to THANK our fans. We care about all y’all, know that.



Kids ‘N’ Billies | 16-06-2012

Our first 7″ ‘In The Balance’ is out now!

http://blackbottleriot.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/BBRgoudenwikkel-500x500.jpg Good news for the vinyl freaks. Black Bottle Riot is proud to announce the release of our first 7″! It features the slippin’ & slidin’ track “In The Balance” and the raunchy boogie of “Exit Spoiler”. Order your copy right here and WIN a BBQ at your home for you and 25 friends where we’ll play a live set as well! We came up with some other cool prizes as well, so check it out.


As you know, we like to party with our audience whenever we can. Check out these pics of our 7″ releaseparty at the lovely Kids ‘N’ Billies festival, which we headlined June 16th. Some great guests joined us onstage: Xavier from The Gospel on keys, Southern Belles Floor & Tatum sang some angelic backing vocals and we brought the shaking Sensation Cheerleaders with us. Not to forget BBQ master Jaap ‘Skimpy Jizzle’, who served fresh grilled chicken and some liters of liquor shots right from the stage! How’s that for a party!?



According to the press…

What a crazy party! Gotta love this quick peak from the side of the stage…

21st April: Recordstore Day

Hi all! We’ll be playing two instore gigs at the Recordstore Day, Saturday 21st April. Will sound quite different since we’re going to mix our arrangements and instrumentarium up a bit. Should be interesting!

13:00h sharp: Kroese, Nijmegen.
15:30h sharp: Velvet, Ede.
Both sets will last 30 minute-ish.


Drop in if you feel like it!

Helluva year comin’ up!

Friends! This is gonna be a good year for Black Bottle Riot. We kicked it off @ Eurosonic/Noorderslag in Groningen last week and it was a KILLER NITE. 100% Party. We’ll be comin’ your way sometime this year. Contact our booking agent (kevin@sozconcerts.nl) if you want to be totally sure of that.


So… Got the debut record? Got the T-shirt? All designs of ‘em? Well, at this moment we’re recording a couple of NEW TRACKS for a 10″ record. VINYL indeed. Totally fresh originals by yours truly, thus prepare to expand your BBR merch collection this Spring.


And folks, if you like to read and your outta books: check this BBR interview at NU.NL. Or this review plus interview in FRET magazine. Cheers!
