Bold, brash, unconventional and uncompromising; all words that could be used to describe Manchester five-piece Rivet City. As accurate as those adjectives are, the fact remains that Rivet City are a band that refuse to be pigeon-holed.
They occupy a niche of their own creation by fusing together elements of funk, punk, hip-hop and alt-rock into an amalgamation hinged on social commentary.
Summer 2018 saw Rivet City’s first release to the world in the form of a four track EP entitled ‘Tarmac Parables’ which overlaps different musical genres to create both a relaxing and intense listening experience. In 2020 they released a series of live performance recordings and singles, including fan favourite ‘Footslogger.’
Their incendiary live shows have seen them play festivals such Hit the North, Dot to Dot, and This is Tomorrow, as well as supporting the likes of Sticky Fingers and The View’s Kyle Falconer.
