Riverboat Gamblers Album & Tour. The Riverboat Gamblers is one of our favourite ever band names, and they will hit the road this October with Cobra Skulls in support of their new album The Wolf You Feed, out now on Volcom Entertainment.

The Wolf You Feed perfectly captures the often-forgotten era of the Dictators and Iggy Pop’s weirder solo stuff while still retaining a remarkable amount of variance in in its songs. From the sweetly scathing anthem Bite Your Tongue to the piano-driven, Murder City Devils-esque death march of Gallows Bird and classic Alice Cooper-esque feel of Loser Neck, the album juxtaposes all of these influences into something that’s got its roots in the past yet still sounds astonishingly relevant.

Have a listen to a couple and check out the full tour dates below.
