SKARLETT RIOT have taken the scene by storm with their powerful, riff-led songs blending melody and grit with a muscular backbone. Add to that an ear for infectious hooks, a singer blessed with a huge voice, and you have a band that not only has bags of attitude but the songs to back them up! Now these British rockers signs a worldwide record deal with Swedish Despotz Records.
“We’re so excited to announce our signing to Despotz Records! We have been and still are working hard behind the scenes so it feels great to be able to share this news with you all! We’ve got an amazing team of people working with us now and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Skarlett Riot. We’d also like to thank all of our fans for their loyal support and patience. More news coming soon! Here’s to us!” / Skarlett Riot

“After 10 years of running Swedish Despotz Records, I had given up finding artists in the UK. But by pure luck we discovered Great Britain’s best kept secret that will take the world by storm. We are so proud that Skarlett Riot choose us to manage their worldwide musical journey.” / Ömer Akay, Despotz Records
