Female fronted bands are all the rage right now, from big American stars like Paramore and We Are The In Crowd to up-and-coming British artists Lecarla, The Dirty Youth and Skarlett Riot. The latter hail from Scunthorpe and after supporting Heaven’s Basement and Voodoo Six, as well as appearances at Download and Bloodstock, have created whispers about them being an exciting new prospect. ‘Tear Me Down’ marks Skarlett Riot‘s first full-length record which shines throughout with energetic songs packing a punch.

After starting out just last year, Skarlett Riot, the four piece, female fronted rock band from North Lincolnshire have a promising future. They have already had great reviews from names such as Kerrang! and Metal Hammer and have been broadcast in radio stations all over Britain and even in the States. Their new EP, ‘Villain’, has a lot of potential to take the band far. Clearly, this band aren’t afraid to take risks; their heavy riffs mixed in with powerful female vocals remind the listener of bigger bands such as Lacuna Coil and The Pretty Reckless.
British rockers Skarlett Riot have just unveiled their debut music video for ‘Villain’, the title-track for their forthcoming new EP. Watch it here:

Female-fronted band, Skarlett Riot, put themselves out there for the first time with a 4-track eponymously titled EP. Considering the recent influx of bands using a female as their vocalist, there are only a handful of these bands that have managed to make a name for themselves. The genre of music that these bands choose to play in is nearly always the same: pop/indie/alternative rock, and Skarlett Riot are no different. They reside in the alternative rock genre, and this makes them fall into the same category as the majority of other female-fronted bands, therefore they offer nothing new to the fray which is a pity for such a talented bunch.
