Dry the River formed in spring 2009 and have lived together in the same shared house in Stratford east London since. Citing an esoteric list of influences - Leonard Cohen, At The Drive-In, Neil Young, Arlo Guthrie, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bruce Springsteen and Devendra Banhart – the band draw as much from their shared love of U.S. hardcore as they do from the classic songwriters they all admire.
Following a run of headline dates in September which culminated in a sold-out show at London’s Scala, the band recently supported Bombay Bicycle Club on their sold-out UK tour. This summer also saw the band play some rapturously received festival gigs on both sides of the Atlantic, some highlights being their shows at SXSW in Texas, Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury, Latitude and most recently End of the Road and Bestival.
