Oslo-based metallic hardcore five-piece group The Nika Riots are set to release their first full-length album “Derelict” on April 29th via Mas-Kina Recordings. 

The new song ‘Perseverance’ is out now:

The follow-up to their 2018’s EP “Set Fire” was produced and recorded by the band and mastered by Alan Douches, and features eleven aggressive, melodic, and catchy songs that see them merging heavy riffs with a hardcore attitude, punchy rhythms, and screamy vocals. 

The Nika Riots from Oslo, Norway, recorded their first EP “Set Fire”, made two music videos, and signed a record deal even before their first concert. Featuring members of bands like Man the Machetes, Carnival Kids, and Torch, The Nika Riots play metal with a hardcore attitude. Screamo, vocal harmonies, and guitar riffs full of details and groovy, powerful drums – that’s the musical essence of The Nika Riots. 

The band released the single ‘Nine Meals From Anarchy’ with accompanying music video in the summer of 2018 and spent the following months on the stage, playing at festivals such as Øya Festivalen and Harpefoss Hardcore Festival and touring with bands like Sibiir and Black Debbath.
