Biography

(2002 – present)

Andrew Mailloux - Vocals
Dave Gillett - Guitar
Sean Rydquist - Bass
Jesse Smith - Drums

Formed in late 2002, Seattle’s RISHLOO continue to gain wide-spread recognition for their dynamic sound, thought-provoking lyrics and intense live performance. Often compared to bands like Dredg, The Mars Volta, Tool and Fair to Midland, RISHLOO strives to push the envelope of psychedelic, progressive art-rock, drawing inspiration from classic artists like The Beatles, David Bowie, and Pink Floyd, while incorporating the modern experimentation and emotional depth of artists such as Tori Amos, Deftones, Radiohead, Porcupine Tree and more.

In February 2012 the band announced that Andrew, the vocalist, decided to leave the band, this being the unexpected end of RISHLOO. The remaining members briefly formed the band The Ghost Apparatus, until late in 2013 when Andrew and the band rejoined forces. On October 10th 2013 the band announced that they had decided to move forward making music as RISHLOO.

Continuing as they have since their inception as an entirely independent venture, RISHLOO have sold 5,500+ units of their debut album, Terras Fames (2004) and 9,500+ units of their sophomore effort, Eidolon (2007) while attracting tens of thousands of fans online from around the globe. Interest in the band continues to grow exponentially on sites such as Myspace, Facebook, YouTube, ReverbNation and Last.FM.

With a lot of hard work and much appreciated help from their fans, RISHLOO continue to travel and perform whenever possible throughout the U.S. and parts of Canada. In the course of their adventures, they have been privileged to share the stage with artists like Karnivool, Papa Roach, Fair to Midland, Ashes Divide, Sevendust, Trapt, Strata and Judas Priest.

    I didn't hear about Rishloo until after they split up, and I really fell in love with the music. So happy to hear that they band are back together. Hopefully they will come to the UK for a tour!

    Лучшее, что я когда-либо слышал. Группа мечты прямо, я многому научился слушая их музыку, и теперь использую их элементы в своей.

    I changed my mind on Rishloo's vocalist, he's got great vocals. This is basically an edgier A Perfect Circle/Dead letter Circus mix, and I can fully get behind that.
