The Riverboat Gamblers have toured with some incredible acts including Rancid, Eagles of Death Metal, Joan Jett, Gogol Bordello, Against Me!, X, Warped Tour, and more. If that’s not cool enough, their music has been featured in Rockband, Rockband 3, Madden 2007, Skate 2 and Need for Speed Most Wanted 2012. You have also seen them during an appearance on G4TV.
Their new album, The Wolf You Feed, is getting some great reviews:
“ATX punx finally grow up, flex polished muscles, moody might via hard chugging (and flange).” – SPIN
“Look, I’m neither a writer for Rolling Stone, nor an intern at Crypt Records; accordingly, when I hear the term “real rock and roll,” I go to the other side of the bar. But sometimes, even the most overused terminology applies. The new Riverboat Gamblers album, The Wolf You Feed, is-ahem-that.” – Noisey
“Riverboat Gamblers have been one of the most consistent (and consistently underappreciated) punk bands in the scene for more than a decade, expertly balancing force and swagger on their fifth album, The Wolf You Feed.” – Alternative Press
They are definitely worth the listen, even if you don’t think it’s your kind of music. Check out their video for “Blue Ghosts,” a track from the album:
