Up-and-coming Stafford rockers Ryders Creed have confirmed their debut record will be available next month.

Ryders Creed hail from across Staffordshire

They’ve only been together roughly for a year, but despite this they’ve nearly finished their debut in time for a busy summer of shows. Their self-titled debut will be released on June 1.

Their quick route to success has seen them win Hard Rock Hell's Highway To Hell competition before signing a worldwide licensing deal with Off Yer Rocka Recordings – who will be promoting the release.

The group is made up of vocalist and frontman Ryan Anthony, a former Walton High School student from Stafford, as well as guitarists Lee Spencer and Myles Cooper, bassist Richard Clark and drummer Lee Gilbert.

Fans pledged more than £6,000 via PledgeMusic so the band could record their debut album, with practice sessions jamming out at a lock-up in Wednesbury, and gigs booked for Wolverhampton, Birmingham and more.

On top of this, they have also just released their debut music video for single Headspace, which is now available to watch here and shows the band at their energetic best.

Speaking about the album, Ryan said: “We’re all extremely excited to be releasing our debut album this year and we can’t wait for all our fans and future fans to hear it. We hope that everyone loves the album as much as we do.

“We believe that there is something on this album for everybody...those who like the heavier side of rock, and those who like the lighter side. Those who love to really understand and analyse the lyrical content and those who love a huge dirty riff. This album is our way of showcasing our story so far in a way that is universally understood, letting people get to know us without actually meeting us.

“These songs are the first step in our million mile journey, and we are monumentally eager for you all to hear it.”
