Prepare for a rollocking ride with Riot Tapes and their new single, ‘Hello Insanity’. The Dublin band, formed of Chris O’Brien, Elaine Doyle, Marty Canavan and Darren Gorey have written a song about the fakeness of fame and sacrifices that can go with it – namely one’s mental health.

You can find Riot Tapes on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, Instagram, and SoundCloud.

Riot Tapes will be performing at the Big Viking Picnic in Grove Gardens, Fordstown, Co. Meath, on Saturday 29th August. Riot Tapes will be on the main stage at 7.15pm. Ticket information about the Big Viking Picnic is here. All proceeds go to children’s cancer charity Aoibheann’s Pink Tie.

‘Hello Insanity’ is now available on iTunes.
