The Riverboat Gamblers are a punk rock band originally from Denton, Texas but now residing in Austin, Texas. The band first received attention from major record labels after their energetic and rowdy showcase at the 2003 South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival in Austin, Texas, but the band ultimately signed with indie label Gearhead Records.
In 2005 they were signed to Volcom Entertainment and performed a stint on the 2005 Warped Tour, where the band was often noticed for its deranged live shows. The silliness of some of the earlier material has given way to a more complex breadth of material about America's maligned. They opened for Rancid and Rise Against in the summer of 2009. They have also appeared on the soundtracks to the videogames Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, Madden 07 and Skate 2. In 2010 they began to perform on the Vans Warped Tour in the United States.
