INTRODUCING: The Dirty Rivers

Forming in early 2011, The Dirty Rivers have quickly became one of the hottest bands to come out of Liverpool in the past decade. Drawing influences from bands such as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Arctic Monkeys, they have created their unique sound which quickly intregued fans and stirred attention from competing record labels. The boys eventually came to a decision and signed with NuTune Records, since then the band have been working on their debut album which has been set for release in the summer of 2012. With the debut album's release date swiftly approaching, the band have released Get Your Guns Out as their first single which has been praised by radio DJ's around the country, being played on radio stations such as Absolute Radio, Xfm, BBC Merseyside and BBC 6Music. Feel free to listen to the songs the band have uploaded to their BandPage on Facebook at

The band consists of:

Mike Ellis - Vocals
Jay Roberts - Guitar
Lloyd Shearer - Bass
Ryan Ellis - Guitar
Ben Robinson - Drums

Packed with attitude and brimming with exciting rock n roll licks, 'Get Your Guns Out' is a superb introduction to The Dirty Rivers. Imagine Kasabian coupled with BRMC, but with a classic Northern kick and an utterly infectious guitar hook and you're close. This band promise some very great things indeed.

The single 'Get Your Guns Out' was played on the most recent edition of the 'Mr Scott:Music' radio show. Fast forward to 14:11 to hear the track...

The Dirty Rivers will be headlining the BBC Introducing Merseyside stage at The Krazyhouse for this years Liverpool Sound City Festival. Taking place this Friday night (18th May 2012) you can gain free entry to the gig by going to this page:
