“The Roughneck Riot generate a steam-rolling wall of melodic noise that hits you like a right hook. Combining all the right elements – The Pogues, Flogging Molly, Levellers, Johnny Cash and The Clash, this is contemporary hardcore folk driven by youth and boundless energy. If this lot don’t make you smile then you’re surely deaf or dead!” - R2/Rock’n’Reel Magazine
The Roughneck Riot are a 6 piece Punk band from Warrington UK.
Influenced by traditional Folk music from around the world, we are reinventing and rewriting Folk music to make sense to our lives today.

we write music for people, regardless of race, nationality, age, gender or sexuality. In a country with a government trying to destroy it, and a music industry run by money hungry people who couldnt care less about musicians, we are here as a voice amongst many in the scene ready to be heard.
We are here to play Folk Punk music. From nowhere & everywhere.
This is our Day.

Starting March 2005, The Roughneck Riot hailed as Manchester’s most energetic, raucous and messy punk band - with a sound that could turn holy water to piss!!

2009 saw a line-up change and The Roughneck Riot progress from the 4 piece bunch of teenage guys to the 6 piece orchestra of twisted Folk Punk rockers you see today. Since that point the band have taken the UK by storm, with none-stop gigs up and down the country, two European tours & support slots for acts such as: The Real McKenzies, Sham 69, Demented Are Go!, Street Dogs & Shane MacGowan.
