Finnish Rioghan is back after their successful debut album Different Kinds Of Losses which was released on last December via Inverse Records

The band is currently preparing their second studio album but before that they’ll release a 3-track EP titled Covers III on December 15th 2023. The chosen cover tracks are Toxic (Britney Spears), Sweet Death (King Dude) and Lethean (Katatonia). 

The second single Sweet Death originally performed by King Dude and Shannon F. is now available on streaming services:

Rioghan comments Sweet Death:
“Sweet Death became my favorite song that instant when I heard King Dude’s ‘Death’-album for the first time. It also became obvious, that this song had to be visited, if I only could find a suitable duet-partner. And of course we did, Tony Kaikkonen agreed to sing with me on this release too. Instrumentally we turned the song a bit to the heavier side, and for vocals we channeled our inner gothic atmosphere. All in all, a lovely song, where the lyrics also let you sink into the darkening autumn nights.” 

LISTEN the first single Toxic on streaming services: 

Rioghan is now ready hit the stages and the first gig shall take place at On The Rocks, Helsinki on November 15th.
