RIOT V Releases “Live Hard Ride Free” Lyric Video

Wednesday, 11th February 2015

RIOT V (formerly known as RIOT) have released the lyric video for “Live Hard Ride Free,” which comes from their 2014 album, Unleash The Fire.

The album promises to please fans of the Thundersteel era of RIOT, as main songwriter and longtime Reale music collaborator Don Van Stavern does much of the writing, as he did on Thundersteel and The Privilege Of Power. Don is joined by longtime RIOT bandmate, songwriter and Reale’s guitar partner of over 20 years, Mike Flyntz, to create what they feel is something they are proud to call a RIOT record. The RIOT V lineup is completed by powerhouse vocalist extraordinaire Todd Michael Hall (BURNING STARR, REVERENCE), Frank Gilchriest (VIRGIN STEELE, RIOT’s Army Of One) and former Mike Flyntz guitar student and resident shredder Nick Lee. This new onslaught headlined sold-out shows in Germany, Greece, Spain and Italy and played the prestigious festivals Metal Assault and Metal Apocalypse earlier this year, and will headline next year’s Keep It True festival, which is already sold out.

Unleash The Fire will be available as a digipak version with one bonus tack, a double gatefold colored vinyl version with one bonus track, as a standard version and as a digital download.
