Riding magazines around the US and the world are getting their first copies of the debut album and the reviews are starting to come in.
Iron Works Magazine are giving the Riders a thumbs up for the album track by track with all 10 songs. Irons Works said the Riders have created music that will “haunt your soul.” “The boys have taken the feeling of riding and translated it to harmonies, strung chords, picked strings and driving compression”. With Comparisons to Jackson Browne, Allman Brothers Band, ZZ Top and Shooter Jennings and saying its “Southern Rock Done Right!” http://iwblogger.com/2011/street-riders-southern-rock/
The Riders are also getting another thumbs up from The Biker Hotline magazine The worlds largest online magazine for Bikers. Jack Lawford the magazines editor says its “Foot Stompin and it’s an album that once it goes in your CD player, it ain’t coming back out any time soon!” and “Guaranteed to have your feet keepin’ the beat with a number of the songs, especially “I’ve Had a Good Ride”, where the lyrics reflect many things bikers hold as a God-given right including the freedom to ride the open road in the company of their brothers.” http://www.bikerhotline.com/bookreviews/2011/11mstreet/
Reviews from France are also coming in from Motorbiker Magazine saying “Though there are many motorcycle riding musicians out there, with a few exceptions, not many write and sing about motorcycles and do it in a professional way. The Riders are one of the exceptions”.

Danielle David contributing writer for Yahoo Entertainment says “The Riders are gaining momentum throughout the Country with similar sounds as the Eagles, many listeners are enthused with the band’s musical talents and devotion to life, liberty, and the pursuit of freedom.”

The album is set to release in late June or early July and will be carried by J&P Cycles, Amazon and many other aftermarket parts suppliers in the riding world.
