Bands that are able to evade pigeon-holing in terms of genre are bands that we have always strived to work with here at Basick. So, when we first took a listen to Toulouse-based RIVIẼRE, we were instantly compelled and the decision to work with these guys was one that felt very natural for us!
Whilst the four-piece's music has its roots firmly in the post-rock/progressive metal world, there are strong elements of post-hardcore, alternative metal and, amazingly, 80s electro. Together with influences of Karnivool, Deftones and Tool, RIVIẼRE's material makes for an immensely interesting and satisfying listen.
Check out the band's brand new single, 'Golden Wounds', below!
A band that is essentially completely fresh on the rock and metal scene, RIVIẼRE have spent the last two years working tirelessly on their debut release, 'Heal', which they will finally unleash on a very unsuspecting audience January 20th 2017.
A message from the band:
"We are very honoured that Basick Records and Hold Tight! PR have chosen to work with RIVIẼRE. So much time, work and energy has been put into this album and it means a lot to all of us. We've had the chance to work with many talented people and there have been lots of unexpected developments. It’s been greatly rewarding to have the support of such a label, and we’re very grateful to have the opportunity to share our debut album 'Heal' to such an extent!"
