“And I'm hearing you say, not enough is OK. Well, it's not...

I'm with the Painted People,” quips lead vocalist Christian Dryden of NYC-based, The Ritualists. Dryden, who fronts the band and writes the songs, is something of an anachronism; A multi-instrumentalist who relishes the performance aspects of a live show while also challenging his audience with lyrics that reference 19th Century Romance poetry and musical arrangements flush with ornate, art-rock sensibilities.

After a few years of paying their dues, finding their unique voices, and garnering both notice and respect from the NYC Underground community, The Ritualists completed their first full-length album and sought to test the boundaries of the current Rock-n-Roll landscape.
