Riot V are going to release their new album “Mean Streets” on February 16, 2024. Their new lyric video for the first digital single,“High Noon”, is now streaming. 

Can you hear the motorbikes howling? US icons RIOT (V) are finally returning with a brand new album titled »Mean Streets« under their “seat belts.” The record which is set for a February 16, 2024 release through Atomic Fire Records, contains 12 tracks which were recorded by Bruno Ravel in New Jersey. Ravel also mixed the album while Bart Gabriel took care of its mastering. Artwork was provided by Gyula Havancsák (ACCEPT, STRATOVARIUS, BRAINSTORM etc.) who captured the galloping style of the new material skillfully – without missing the band’s typical seal style, of course. Not less than galloping is the group’s first appetizer of the record, ‘High Noon,’ which kick-starts the »Mean Streets« campaign with a crispy length of 3:26 minutes.

Donnie Van Stavern comments: “We are extremely excited to release our 17th RIOT record »Mean Streets« with the mighty Atomic Fire Records label! We went back to the roots a bit on this one with some hard rockers and of course power metal stylings. Our new pre-release lyric video ‘High Noon’ is a song I wrote with Mark Reale in mind, he loved the Old West and wrote songs about it as well [‘Restless Breed’/’Gunfighter’ etc.] and the music is a reminiscence on »Thundersteel«/»Privilege Of Power«! Enjoy, metal warriors, more awesomeness is on the way!”

Vocalist Todd Michael Hall adds: “I am really excited for the people to hear »Mean Streets,« we are evolving well with one foot rooted in the past and one foot pointing toward to future.”
