New Booking Agent
Here’s a short message while we’re finishing the recordings in the studio.
As of May 2nd all our bookings will be handled by Frank Kimenai at Whipping Post Music. YES!
This is what Frank states about working with bands: “I work with artists that have a sincere and authentic signature, and I strife towards building a recognizable artistic signature for this booking agency as well. What you see is what you get, basically. No bullshit, no hypes, no one-hit-wonders, but plain, honest music, by plain, honest artists, brought to you in a plain and honest way”.
We felt right at home! We’re really looking forward to working with Whipping Post Music.
Contact Frank here: e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: +31(0)618816142
Peace out – BBR
Recording new album
At this very moment Black Bottle Riot is working hard on their second full-length album. The boys work together with Sven Lens of As Loud As Studios, known of his work with among others Willy Nelson, Trijntje Oosterhuis and Snoop Doggy Dogg. It will be an all killer – no filler, groove laden album with dirty riffs and pounding beats, recorded LIVE at the studio. KABOOM! Click HERE or on the collage above to view more pics.
Cheers – BBR
‘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!

BBR eating 1,5 million scoville units
When 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.
This Sunday: BBQ @ 7″ winner’s location
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.
Live @ Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam
Clip for ‘In The Balance’
Kids ‘N’ Billies | 16-06-2012
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.
Our first 7″ ‘In The Balance’ is out now!
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!?
Here’s a little bit of R’N'R poetry for all you bleeding hearts. Some reviews and pics of gigs we did in April 2012.
According to the press…
- Asteriks (Leeuwarden): “Who needs a mic to sing-a-long?”
- Paaspop (Zieuwent): “Impressive!”
- Recordstore Day (Ede & Nijmegen).
- Radboud University (Nijmegen): “Southern Rock heroes.”
- Luxor Live (Arnhem): “BBR can’t be missed on any festival whatsoever this summer.”
- Gods of Groove (Den Bosch): “Southern Rock with controlled energy.”

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!
Live @ Maddogs, Groesbeek
Texas Pete (part II) in the flesh. Turn it up!
