(NEW YORK, NY) – Take a ride with the Warlocks Motorcycle Club as Discovery enters the secret brotherhood of a notorious biker club in Florida. With its members struggling to balance family and club life, WARLOCKS RISING gives a never-before-seen look at this unpredictable subculture Friday, July 5 at 9 PM ET/PT.


WARLOCKS RISING goes inside The Warlocks, one of the country’s most infamous 1% motorcycle clubs.  The 1% moniker stems from a controversial quote from the American Motorcycle Association stating that 99% of all motorcycle riders are law abiding citizens, implying that 1% were not.  Today, 1% motorcycle clubs are considered outlaws by law enforcement and the government.  Despite this reputation and risk, these Warlocks members devote their loyalty to the club, putting brotherhood above all else; no risk is too great.  But this loyalty is the root cause of their biggest conflict – attempting to balance family life with the violent subculture the Warlocks live in. Each episode follows this group of bikers as they struggle to solve their personal problems while staying true to the Warlocks’ 1% life. But in the end, each of them must choose to make sacrifices to pay the price for the freedom they desire.


WARLOCKS RISING is produced for Discovery by  Discovery Studios. Stuart Schonfeld, Cameron P. Casey, Eddie Barbini, and Brian Knappmiller  are executive producers.

    If your “notorious biker club” is letting a TV crew follow you around, you probably ain’t so notorious. ;)


  • BiPolarPoet

    LOL! Another fake motorcycle show to go along with Devils Ride. Discovery, WTF are you folks doing over there.UGH!

  • MyzOne

    Actually the Warlocks are probably the MOST notorious and violent biker gang next to the hells angels. Then again all the old biker gangs have been really quiet for about 15 years. So it’s weird they’d do a reality show.

  • chick
