Recently announced winners of Kerrang Radio's "The Deal" competition, RITUALS formed in 2018 as a fun college project between guitarist Ewan Lee and vocalist Lewis MacRae. Fast forward to 2023, already strongly backed by a glut of industry tastemakers, joined by drummer Matt Dix and bassist Dom James, RITUALS are unquestionably poised to break out this year. Support for the foursome’s debut EP, Awake, placed the riff merchants on the map with Kerrang’s Alex Baker championing the band on his Fresh Blood show.


RITUALS’ live reputation is also soaring with the northern heavyweights supporting big names such as Skindred, As Everything Unfolds, Osiah, and a host of UK dates as part of a relentless touring schedule. A stand out appearance to a packed room at the inaugural RiseFest cemented RITUALS as a force to be reckoned within the UK music scene. The soaring metal crew set loose their breathtaking new EP, Show Me The Signs, in 2022 and it’s certainly the group’s finest work to date. The three-track release heralds the quartet’s growing songwriting prowess and musical maturity, with each track from the EP having its very own unique energy, element, and flow.


2023 continues to see the band grow, after being picked by a group of music industry experts such as Daniel P Carter, Ryan Richards, Johnny Doom and Alyx Holcombe to name a few, RITUALS will be performing at the 20th Anniversary of DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL alongside huge acts such as METALLICA, SLIPKNOT, PARKWAY DRIVE, ARCHITECTS, BRING ME THE HORIZON and many more. As well as signing a deal with MARSHALL RECORDS for a blistering next release, with all of this and more to come, RITUALS are set to be your next favourite band.
