Kent rockers ELECTRIC RIVER finished off 2012 with a bang, after two back to back shows at the 02 Islington Academy supporting 'Mad Caddies' & 'Spear Of Destiny'.

The band released their latest E.P, 'In Your Name' on Bonfire night, Nov 5th through England Street records. The band formed as school friends aged just 15 and after one self released album they are honing their own politically charged, socially aware sound that is influenced by the likes of The Clash, Bruce Springsteen and The Killers.

Electric River have gained major airtime from Q Radio's DJ 'Pete Bailey' recently ranked number 7 in Classic Rock Magazine's heavy rotation chart amongst other artists such at The Rolling Stones & Manic Street Preachers.

Recent performances on The Big Cheese stage at Guilfest & BT London Live at Hyde Park during the Olympics has sparked interest from Live Nation - ‘they were the best band over the whole 2 weeks'.

Electric River, fresh from hitting the road headlining The Jubilee Club Tour (Karl Barat/Chris McCormack) will return to the countries venues during February as part of the 'Big Cheese Magazine Presents Tour' in support of a record that is passionate, totally addictive and a true statement of intent. From opening track-stadium rocker 'Happy' through to the super catchy 'Hold Your Nerve' and full ahead 'In Your Name' Electric River's E.P is an almighty introduction to the band.

"An incredibly powerful and strong release, with passionate lyrics and a rare social conscience running through the songs, surely the world awaits." - Vive Le Rock Magazine
