Young Kent roustabouts RISKEE & THE RIDICULE have signed to Bomber Music and have just unveiled a new single and video.
'Kaboom!', fusing urgent, incisive lyricism with hardcore punk and hip-hop influences, is the first single to be taken from the band's third album Body Bag Your Scene, which is out at the end of June.
“Our song is about the blatant scare tactics used by the right-wing media to give the illusion of danger," states frontman Scott Picking. "This illusion creates the fear of being attacked, which naturally creates hostility. ‘We attack each other to the sound of their applause because their assets are safe if we’re coming for yours’. We chose the word ‘Kaboom’ because of its use in comic books ‘to indicate a large explosion’. Comic books can print what they like, and people know its fiction. Newspapers do the same and people take it as the truth.”
Set for release on 28 June, you can pre-order the album here.
Riskee & The Ridicule are lined up to join BOOZE & GLORY at their 10th Anniversary show at London's Electric Ballroom on Saturday 2 November.
