Kent rockers ELECTRIC RIVER have just launched the new video for ‘Hold Your Nerve‘ which had over 1000 views in 24 hours. Electric River will release their latest e.p, ‘In Your Name’ on October 22nd through England Street records.
The band formed as school friends aged just 15 and after one self released album they are honing their own politically charged, socially aware sound that is influenced by the likes of The Clash, Bruce Springsteen and The Killers.
Electric River’s recent performances on The Big Cheese stage at Guilfest & BT London Live at Hyde Park during the Olympics has sparked interest from Live Nation – ‘they were the best band over the whole 2 weeks’
Electric River, fresh from hitting the road in June headlining The Jubilee Club Tour (Karl Barat/Chris McCormack) will return to the countries venues during Oct/Nov in support of a record that is passionate, totally addictive and a true statement of intent.
‘An incredibly powerful and strong release, with passionate lyrics and a rare social conscience running through the songs, surely the world awaits.’ – Vive Le Rock Magazine 2012
“Bags of passion and heaps of power…the ghost of Joe Strummer wafts out of your speakers with catchy as hell numbers’- Rocksound
