With their 5th studio release, Rickshaw Billie’s Burger Patrol is putting a name to the style of fuzzed out, overdriven, melodic, groovy music they have been making since 2016. In 9 concise, no bullshit songs, RBBP demonstrates their ability to blend the merciless low end of Leo Lydon’s 8-String guitar, Aaron Metzdorf’s masterful chordwork on the bass, and Sean St.Germain’s driving drumwork. Lydon and Metzdorf’s vocal melodies cut through the high frequencies to deliver fresh layers to the hooks that RBBP fans have come to love.
As the name implies, »Doom Wop« is a heavy, melody-driven, party metal album. With riffs as big and dumb as ever, and lyrics that stab at the worst members of society and ourselves (while keeping tongue firmly in cheek), listeners will find all the elements that make up the soul of RBBP on this record.
»Beef Beast« is available on limited edition slime green vinyl and solid black vinyl and download/streaming on October 27th. »Doom Wop« is available on LP and download via Bandcamp HERE and Big Cartel HERE.

“Fuzzed-out, speaker-exploding groove that’s both sonically excruciating and intoxicatingly alluring. They find a weird sweet spot of harshness and catchiness that goes down like a greasy, gut-busting bad decision.” — Invisible Oranges
“Very little pretense but a whole dollop of kick, conjuring the sounds of early Red Fang or Dead Quiet.” — Heavy Blog Is Heavy
“Oozes originality from their vocal delivery to their sleazy brand of stoner, doom and rock n roll and »Doom Wop« is no exception. You can put on this album and get absolutely crushed by fuzz, but all the while with a big smile on your face.” — Doom Charts
“Epically catchy… Imagine the ear-wormy fuzz-rock riffage of Dinosaur Jr. if it was played on an eight-string guitar with super heavy low-end.” — Revolver Magazine
