Posts Tagged ‘Sunset Riot’


Earlier this year, I told you about an awesome band that I fell in love with from Australia, Sunset Riot. You can read that post here.  They really caught my eye and couldn’t wait to hear more from them. Of course, I learned about them a little too late since they did disband later in the year.

I was excited to hear that singer Dellacoma Rio was still pursing his passion for music in the aftermath of Sunset Riot’s disbanding. Dellacoma has such an amazingly unique voice that draws you in to his musical world.  Dellacoma has recently released his lyric video for his debut single, “Dead Will Rise” and you can check it out here:


Dellacoma explains more about the song, “Dead Will Rise”,  “The song is pretty much an anthem for those who feel like they’ve been written off. Coming off the back of Sunset Riots breakup I felt like a lot of people were expecting that my career was finished musically, that I was effectively dead as an artist. I guess this is my statement to say “I’m still here, still alive and more determined than ever”

The song should be hitting USA radio and will be available soon for download on Itunes.  Dellacoma tells us, “It was recorded at Secret Sound Studios in Melbourne Australia with producer/engineer Peter Dacy and was co-written with Voya (guitarist for the band ‘Rattlesnake’). It features Dean Williams on lead, rhythm and bass guitars as well as backing vocals and Alejandro Adams on drums and percussion.” 
We are also featuring Dellacoma in our upcoming Holiday Article and are pleased to give you first peak at his answers here:
