US power metal legends Riot (V) are more than just back! Celebrating the release of their highly praised new album, “Mean Streets”, the group took the European stages – including a co-headlining performance at Germany’s Rock Hard Festival – by storm earlier this month. Besides catapulting the band into the German album chart once again (this time at no. 35), Riot (V) could even enter the Swiss (#23) and Austrian (#59) sales chart, marking their very first entries in both countries.

To also continue their latest success story on the road, the legacy carrying band now announce the second European leg of the supporting tour which will lead them to ten cities in Iberia, Cyprus and Greece this November. Paving the way to the second part of Riot (V)’s “Mean Streets” journey across the continent are a stop at Sweden Rock Festival, shows in Japan but also an extensive Latin American trip among others. 

Bass player Don Van Stavern rejoices:

“Tequila cheers, metal warriors! We would like to thank you for the amazing response for the new album “Mean Streets”! It means a lot being that it’s our 17th album and 50th anniversary next year and you guys are still with us and supporting the legacy! This means the world to us and by world we mean all the great countries that have been supportive and we send lots of love and we are coming to riot for you in November! “Mean Streets” part II tour! Shine on!”
