River Stole Gods Talks of Singles, Album and Shows!

Progressive modern day metalcore band RIVER STOLE GODS has not one but two EP's out, with some more tracks readily available soon! The band talks of music, show playing, and plans for their debut album!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Adam: The band’s journey actually began in 2018, when Raphael and I found together via Facebook: at that time, I was searching for some musicians to start a new band project with and came across Raphael’s post in a Facebook music group. Pretty fast, we wrote a bunch of songs like “Collapse” and “Impediment” and by 2019, we had found Lasse and the previous other members via the good old “www.” We got pretty fast into recording our first EP “Sky Architects” and had the chance to tour East Europe with Slam Metal Band “Ingested”. Since then, a lot has happened with the Corona pandemic - a lot of writing and producing throughout the past two years in our home studios, when lives weren’t possible, the band members changed and with that, our musical style evolved. With the latest release “Holding On”, we are going to continue as a trio: Lasse, Raphael and I.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Adam: Our band name reflects the diverse perspectives of life and is meant to be open for interpretation.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Adam: We are based in Düsseldorf, Germany. I would say, the music scene here is vivid and brings out a lot of talented and bold young Progressive Metalcore bands such as “Æries”, “Time the Valuator” and “Unprocessed” – just to name a few of many great bands these days.

4. How would you describe your style?

Adam: Our sound is a pretty good mix of more complex, rather rhythm-driven riffs for lovers of progressive tunes and hard-hitting brutal breakdowns.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Adam: So far, we have released two EPs called “Sky Architects” and “Apparitions” – both launched in 2020 – and one week ago, our latest release “Holding On” dropped as the first chapter of a Single-Trilogy. With the very new song, you can expect a more progressed, heavier version of River Stole Gods, that will let you sing along, bounce, and do a lot of mosh pits in our upcoming lives.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Adam: As previously announced, two more songs will be released in the near future through a common storyline, which lyrically, musically and visually tie in with "Holding On". So, you better watch out for us in the near future, if you have liked what we do so far.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Adam: In October, we play to local shows in Cologne (Oct, 11th) and Hürth (Oct, 21st) and are thrilled to perform our new song “Holding On” for the first time live. We are planning to tour as much as possible in 2023, so you guys will definitely have the chance to see us somewhere live in Europe next year.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Adam: For the near future we plan our first album, as we have a bunch of cool stuff, that should be found on a LP, as we think! And of course, to get more into touring, maybe across Europe or even the globe with great bands and meet inspiring musicians on our musical journey. We really do enjoy making music and want to bring this joy and passion to people across the world and connect with music lovers like we are.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find us on every streaming platform and soon we are going to launch an Online Shop, to buy our merch. In the meantime, just hit us up on IG for more info.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Something like: "’River Stole Gods’ is the band, where all you need is to be found in one single song".
