Riksha Signs Deal with Zombie Shark Records, Releases Music Video for “Shovel It”!

Salt Lake City’s RIKSHA has inked a worldwide deal with Zombie Shark Records, the new record label from Noah “Shark” Robertson (Motograter, Ex-The Browning) for their forthcoming album ‘Five Stages Of Numb’ set for release in June. The album was recorded at Elevate Studios by notable producer and drummer for Chelsea Grin, Pablo Viveros plus album art done by Die Elster.

RIKSHAs sound is affectionately known as “throg”, a mixture of “thrash” and “progressive”. The band can best be compared to groove metal and nu metal bands such as Mudvayne, Tool, Pantera, Coal Chamber, Soulfly, Nothingface, and American Head Charge.

RIKSHA
have released 2 previous studio albums recorded by Bruce Kirby at Boho Digitalia Studios – ‘Dream Drops Red’ released through Dark Harvest Records and the independently released ‘Night Begins’. Riksha burned up the underground metal scene in 2012, winning Project Independent’s “Industry Panel Favorite” voted on by a panel of producers, A&R reps, and record company owners. Since then, the band has purchased a 1973 Eagle Tour Bus and has hit the road throughout the US. Riksha is currently making plans to tour the U.S. in support of their upcoming release.

RIKSHA takes four guys and squeezes out as much sound and energy as possible. With a combination of both melodic and in your face vocal and guitar styles, Riksha hammers away with a musical montage of aggression, power, and strength to create a new and bold sound.
