After the success of their second album ‘Regenerate‘, the hard-hitting UK quartet Skarlett Riot reinforced their interest from far and wide. With ‘Regenerate‘ the band introduced their listeners to a harder, heavier and faster sound, but still driven by the anthemic hooks that have kept Skarlett Riot at the forefront of the UK modern metal scene. The band have constantly developed and honed their craft; and the band are in comfortable in their darker and heavier guise, with elements of Asking Alexandria, In This Moment and Bullet for My Valentine shining through; opening up all new possibilities for the band.
Still led by the charismatic vocals of Skarlett, the band is a tighter, more powerful proposition, with harsh vocals complementing the melody throughout this track, without every losing sight of the outstanding melodic intent. Musically the band has come on leaps and bounds from previous releases and the addition of new bassist Tim Chambers has given the band a renewed impetus. In 2020, Skarlett Riot released the first single ‘Human’ of the upcoming album. Next up is the second single, ‘Gravity‘, of the upcoming album that will be followed up with a music video.
Skarlett Riot about the single;
‘We are so excited to finally bring you our brand new single ‘Gravity‘. We’ve been busy working hard behind the scenes and we can finally share a small part of what we’ve been working on with you! We hope this brings some brightness and light to people’s lives, especially in these hard times we are living in right now. ‘Gravity‘ is about pushing through the difficult times in life. Be the fuel to your own fire. Block out any negativity and be who you want to be, not what others want to see.” – Skarlett Riot
