The 12 songs on ‘Full Circle’ showcase the diverse range of guitarist/vocalist Taylor Roberts’ talent, and serves as a storytelling platform for many of the life challenges and successes he has endured over recent years. The lead track “Do This On My Own” and artwork (by Roberts) was inspired by a time he was lost on an island in the Bahamas, and he realized that if he didn’t have the tools to do things himself, he could be in quite the bad position. While on his adventures he snapped photos which became part of the artwork for the ‘Full Circle’ release. Roberts also enlisted the help of friends Paul McCoy of 12 Stones (on World Apart) and Jennie Nord of Rave The Reqviem (on In Silence) for guest vocals.
Taylor Roberts, who is the newest guitarist of Taproot, formed Riding With Killers (RWK) in 2018 in the ashes of his former projects Cathercist and Wild Fire, which both had success in the hard rock genre over the years. Roberts befriended RWK’s 1st drummer Dave Coughlin on tour in 2013, when Coughlin was actually the drummer of Taproot. The two linked up for co-writing with friends Tim Krukowski (ex-Sponge), producer Matthew LaPlant and James Lascu (ex-Wilson) . The single was mastered by Matthew LaPlant at Madtown Mix Studios and the band is rounded out by their newest drummer, Jed Thibeault (Avalon Black etc) and bassist Kris Kress.
The new album comes on the heels of their 2022 single “What Comes Next”, and doubles-down on the bands ferocious energy, being led with a massive 90’s rock inspired guitar riff and vocalist Taylor Roberts’ unforgettable rang.
About Riding With Killers:
While Riding with Killers may be a new name on the rock scene, the members of the Detroit trio have seen more stages and logged more hours in the studio than most could imagine. Taylor Roberts, front man and mastermind of RWK, (formerly of Cathercist / Wild Fire), formed a friendship with ex-taproot drummer Dave Coughlin which led to the early music from the band. Since 2018, the band has since built a name for themselves in the Gulf Coast region and beyond. Their recent track “What Comes Next” has been a staple single for the band and their latest song “Hostility” dropped 3/21 via streaming services.
