SickoftheRiot was born with the intention to write catchy punk rock songs with a difference.

Starting off as a three piece SickoftheRiot went out with one mission in mind and that was to play as many and different places as possible.

Starting in late 2015 they finished the year sharing a stage with punk rock legend ‘CJ Ramone’ at the O2 Academy 2.

2016 was the year SickoftheRiot really hit the ground running and ended the year playing over 40 shows and also making two appearances in Wales including shows with Fireball Hottest Band winners ‘Sweet Little Machine’ and old school punk band ‘The Anti Nowhere League’.

2016 also saw the release of debut single ‘Rockstar’ which was written about ‘Kanye West’.

2017 started brightly with the support slot for London punk outfit ‘The King Blues’ but soon came to a hault when the bass player had to leave for personal reasons right before SickoftheRiot’s first Scotland trip. A decision was made to continue as a two piece and guitarist Chris Jones and drummer Paul Brooks loaded the van and headed to Scotland to play two shows with Irish rockers ‘Stiff Little Fingers’ and that’s how the two piece was born.

SickoftheRiot headed into the studio and released their first single as a two piece called ‘Catastrophe’ which so far has currently hit over 1,000 streams on Spotify. Self titled, debut EP soon followed and they continued to play shows up and down the country and finished 2017 with huge shows in Birmingham with ‘Pretty Vicious’ and ‘Spunge’.

2018 will include more shows, some festivals and even more music to be released.
