Tuskar​ ​sign​ ​to​ ​Riff​ ​Rock​ ​Records Milton Keynes “nuclear sludge” duo Tuskar have signed to Riff Rock Records. 

The two-piece’s debut EP, “Arianrhod”, will be available on CD from Riff Rock Records on October 20th. It was recorded at The Cro’s Nest studio by Sam Thredder (Slabdragger). 

Despite having formed less than a year ago, vocalist and drummer Tyler Hodges and guitarist Tom Dimmock’s chemistry is unmistakable both live and in the studio. The two 20-year olds have grown up playing together in bands and have struck out on their own with material that owes as much to Conan and Sleep as it does bands like Behemoth and Darkthrone. 

Drummer and vocalist Tyler Hodges says of the signing: “We’re really excited to be a part of Riff Rock. We can’t wait for this chapter of our journey to start, and we can unleash the riff upon the masses. We’ve had an exciting year so far and with Riff Rock behind us it doesn’t seem like it’s going to slow down anytime soon!” 

Tuskar plan to record another EP with Thredder before the end of 2017 to be released worldwide through Riff Rock, and a debut full-length will follow in 2018. 

You can listen to and pre-order “Arianrhod” on Tuskar’s Bandcamp page (, or stream on all streaming services. 

Riff Rock Records was started in 2015 to promote the best from the UK’s underground heavy scene. 

Riff Rock is extremely excited to add Tuskar to its’ roster which already boasts Afro-psych trio Vodun and tie-dye fuzzlords Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters.
