Apart from possessing the most amusing press bio ever created, Brisbane's Velociraptor have been producing incredibly catchy music since forming in 2009. Originally a trio of vocalist Jeremy Neale and members of Brisbane duo DZ Deathrays (Simon Ridley and Shane Parsons), the group has grown to "a revolving cast of 12 Ultimate Party Dogs" who released a self-titled EP in 2010 and set off on a number of national tours.

They're back, and this time they're armed with a "mini-LP" of eight tracks entitled The World Warriors, due out in early September. The first single off the album is the aptly named "Riot," and showcases the raw energy this band is known for. Screeching vocals, heavy guitar riffs and simple, sharp percussion give this band a real rock sound, reminiscent of Brit-pop legends the Fratellis.

Velociraptor are a great rock band who don't take themselves too seriously, making their music even more enjoyable. Keep partying, Party Dogs.
