Event: Ribco & Ragged Records Presents Electric Citizen & Horisont November 6th
Ragged Records and Ribco are teaming up to bring you a killer night of riffs of gigantic proportions! Riding Easy Record's Electric Citizen are easily one the best doom metal bands around right now, taking the U.S. by storm. Hopping along for the ride with Electric Citizen is Sweden's Horisont. Conjuring up the the ghosts of Rocka Rolla era Judas Priest and Thin Lizzy, this will be their first time on American soil. Trust us, these guys are not to be missed! Their last album Odessey was easily one of our favorite metal records of 2015. Also joining the bill will be Madison's Vanishing Kids, bringing their Doom Gazer sound to the Quad Cities for the first time. This is a show not to be missed! Seriously. Peep out some videos of Electric Citizen and Horisont down below.
