Taylor Roberts, who is currently 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). Bass duties for live shows and music videos have been filled recently by James Lascu (New Monarch) and Damon Tate (For The Fallen Dreams).
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.
