Here at Speak Soft Magazine, we are massive fans of discovering new music, and watching the next generation of the alternative music scene’s royalty blossom.
We’d like to introduce you to Kent-based grime punk band, Riskee and The Ridicule. Following their DIY releases ‘Dawn Of The Dog’ and 2017’s ‘Blame Culture’, the band have now signed with label Bomber Music to release their third studio album, ‘Body Bag Your Scene’ on June 28th.
In the meantime, they have just dropped a music video for single ‘Kaboom’, available to stream below.
Riskee and The Ridicule are well known for their punk takes on modern day issues, from politics and the media to drug addiction and consent, and ‘Kaboom’ is only just a taster of what’s to come with their new record.
“We chose the word ‘Kaboom’ because of its use in comic books ‘to indicate a large explosion’. Comic books can print what they like, and people know it’s fiction. Newspapers do the same and people take it as the truth.”– Frontman Scott Picking on the title of the song.
If you’re a fan of underground DIY punk goodness, we highly recommend you pick up a copy of ‘Body Bag Your Scene’ next month and get yourself down to a show!
