Established in 2014, These Wicked Rivers are Derby’s entry to the new wave of rock and roll that is sweeping across the United Kingdom. Drawing influences from the likes of Black Stone Cherry and Rival Sons, the band have made quite an impact since their inception with their brand of blues-infused modern rock steadily picking up plaudits for their gutsy live performances across the UK.
The ensemble received a slew of positive reviews for their debut EP ‘The Enemy’ back in 2015, and followed it up with 2017’s ‘II’, gaining them attention within the emerging UK rock scene as well as airplay on Planet Rock radio. Debut album ‘Eden’ was released in May 2020 and brought new levels of critical acclaim, including a Classic Rock Magazine ‘High Hopes’ feature as well as a coveted ‘Track of the Week’ accolade.
On the live circuit the lads have forged an ever growing fan base through supports with the likes of Massive Wagons, Those Damn Crows, Kris Barras and Hayseed Dixie, as well playing stand-out performances at festivals such as Planet Rockstock, Steelhouse Festival, Stonedead Festival and Giants of Rock.
2020 was due to be the busiest year for the band yet, with a jam-packed schedule of tours and festivals including a slot on the main stage of Ramblin’ Man Fair. However, even a global pandemic couldn’t slow the lads down. They made good use of the down time back in the studio working on new music.
The band embarked on their first headline UK tour in March 2023, taking their trademark ‘Grandma’s Living Room’ stage set to the far corners of the UK to a rapturous reception including several SOLD OUT shows. With a calendar rapidly filling in anticipation of Eden’s follow up (due mid 2023), the band is sure to be rolling into a town near you very soon!
