Formed in late 2002, Seattle's RISHLOO continue to gain wide-spread recognition for their dynamic sound, thought-provoking lyrics and intense live performance. Often compared to bands like Dredg, The Mars Volta, Fair to Midland and A Perfect Circle, RISHLOO strives to push the envelope of epic progressive art rock, drawing inspiration from classic artists like The Beatles, David Bowie, and Pink Floyd, while incorporating the modern experimentations and emotional depth of artists such as Tori Amos, Deftones, Radiohead and Porcupine Tree.
Continuing as they have since their inception as an entirely independent venture, RISHLOO have sold 3,500+ units of their debut album, Terras Fames (2004) and 4,500+ units of their sophomore effort, Eidolon (2007) while attracting tens of thousands of fans online from around the globe. Interest in the band continues to grow exponentially on sites such as Myspace, Reverb Nation and Last.FM where RISHLOO has become one of the largest and fastest growing indie groups with more than a five-fold increase in plays over the last eight months from 60,000 to nearly 320,000 with another 1,500+ plays added daily.
With a lot of hard work and much appreciated help from their fans, RISHLOO continue to travel and perform whenever possible throughout the U.S. and parts of Canada. In the course of their adventures, they have been privileged to share the stage with artists like Papa Roach, Fair to Midland, Ashes Divide, Sevendust, Trapt, Strata and Judas Priest.
For now, the band continues to perform regionally while finishing up their newest release, FeatherGun, due out in June of 2009.
