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 (email@example.com) 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!

Thanx to the following folks for a great “Let It Snow Tour” this December: our buddies in De Staat & their great roadcrew, the nice bunch of people that work at W2, MC Schaaf, Metropool & Paradiso, the party-cyco audience that came out to the shows, the maniacs who filmed the shows and put ‘em on YouTube, and – certainly not least – the BBR (for this tour) down-sized, wonderful roadcrew of Rob Roadie & Vicious Veltman.
Clip for ‘Turning The Tide’

Fresh from The Press
The first reviews on our debut album are being published as we speak. And it seems like the press digs it!
- Dutch rockzine Lust For Life honors the album with four out of five stars and says ‘this album is so tough, I just might get me a tattoo’. Sure thing! Zine will be instore tomorrow.
- Lords Of Metal (81/100) states that BBR ‘grasps the sound and feel of the Southern States, while making it sound fresher ánd heavier’. Must be the smell of Texas Pete’s BBQ sauce.
- According to White Room, BBR ‘will blow its’ own Texan whirlwind’. Now that’s a nice one! How do they come up with that…?
If you want to read some more about BBR, here are two (Dutch) interviews for y’all: 3voor12 & Ugenda.
Thanx, press folks! More comin’ up. Take care, BBR

Nuthin’ but Cheerleaders
We’re getting closer to the 11-11-11 releaseparty and that means you can almost get your hands on this little piece of R’N'R!
Almost fifty minutes of Southern R’N'R, eleven BBR originals. What about the out-of-limits speedster Doin’ Fine, the mastodontic boogie Exit Spoiler, the slide-grindin’ In The Balance and of course BBR’s anthem to keep y’all psyched: Stay Hungry. Psychedelics, ballads and acoustics are also featured allover the record.
Just one thing: PLAY IT LOUD!!
For those who can’t make it to our releaseparty: pre-order it thru bol.com. Although we prefer you go to your local albumstore and pay less for your pre-order. Saves you a penny for a cold beer.
