Main Stage

Hailing from the West Midlands the band have been steadily building up a following to the point that on September 12th 2008 they sold out the 1,000 capacity Kasbah club in Coventry, this was broadcast around the world.

They have also supported the likes of Athlete, We Are Scientists, The Twang, Cage The Elephant and at Coventry’s Godiva Festival last summer, Glasvegas and The Enemy.

Evidence of their crowd reactions are available on youtube here along with their three videos:

The single ‘Start Digging’ released on 7th July 2008 charted at No.3 in the UK Indie Chart behind Dizzee Rascal and The Last Shadow Puppets!

The single ‘Holes” released on 27th October 2008 charted at No.7 and them moved up to No.6 in the UK Indie Chart.  This release also had a Heavy Duty 7” vinyl E.P. of all three A sides and is now highly collectable!

Q Magazine said, “It seems The Enemy aren’t the only band fizzling with youthful rage”

Clash Magazine said, “PINT SHOT RIOT are extolling the virtues of ambition and chasing dreams, and we’re listening. One to watch for in 2008!

2009 has started with the band being in the studio with Peter Miles (The King Blues) where they have recorded their debut album due for release in June so this really is just the beginning for PINT SHOT RIOT!
