After creating a powerful band dynamic in 2019, Armchair Riot have continued to make music pushed by ardour for the sounds that constructed nice musical foundations for bands like Queens of the Stone Age and Nirvana. With the discharge of ‘Hydro’, Armchair Riot poured these influences right into a melting pot of recent sounds that may simply impress followers of bands like Silversun Pickups, Chilly Warfare Children and Damaged Bells.

The discharge of ‘Hydro’ follows on from Armchair Riot’s 2022 observe ‘Mad Canines In The Noon Solar’, in addition to ‘Crush’ and ‘Submission’ – music that peppered 2021, additional establishing Armchair Riot as a band to observe. The development of Armchair Riot since their preliminary jam periods collectively in 2019 has already seen greater than an album’s price of fabric recorded.

“The music is a tough one to explain. Some components come from an outdated construction that I discarded and stored the rhythm and chord development. I rewrote the lyrics and melody in order that they felt related. I used to be coming from a relationship that was ending and ending badly and painfully and the music grew from a snapshot of a second. I attempt to preserve the lyrics as ambiguous as I can, however most of this music is open sufficient.” Glenn Breslin, Armchair Riot

As they navigated their method by means of the inventive course of, the imaginative and prescient for the kind of music Armchair Riot needed to provide turned clearer. Preliminary recordings had been shelved in an effort to chase the inspirations driving a extra cohesive and layered sound – the primary trace of which got here with the discharge of ‘Submission’ in 2021. The observe was recorded at Guitarist Jason Rechichi’s home, and blended and mastered by Dr Alien Smith at Bergerk Studios (Amyl and The Sniffers, Coniglia, Nerve Quakes).

“The method might be glacially sluggish and different instances so quick. This music was a fast one to study and give you everybody’s components. Ian discovered his bass line and Paul with the driving beat. No click on observe was used so we may go together with a really feel. Jason received the music recorded and sat with it for just a few days earlier than he got here up together with his guitar components. It was initially all Glenn on guitars and it sounded full. So arising with one other half that complimented the melody and stayed true to the aesthetic temper of the music was tremendous necessary. And I feel he managed it.” Glenn Breslin, Armchair Riot
