GuilFest 2011 - Lineup

Pint Shot Riot

‘Twisted Soul’ is the new single from Pint Shot Riot, released 25th July, taken from the band’s debut album ‘Spell It Out’. Mixed by Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Temper Trap), the single also features a club remix from fellow Coventry music maker and DJ Paul Morrell. Telling the tale of a girl who finds out her boyfriend is taking her for a ride, Twisted Soul is a classic example of Pint Shot Riot’s anthemic indie rock.

The band went down a storm in the city, with American audiences welcoming them with open arms.
