About Night Riots
Night Riots is setting the alternative underworld ablaze as swift and smartly as their brooding, melody rich and timeless songs have already endeared them to critics. The Southern California based band has a unique melodic sensibility - delivering transcendent pop music that is both modern and timeless; as well as both sinister and romantic, with the downbeat flare of new wave, '80s movie soundtracks.
Frontman Travis Hawley spent five years in England before moving to a small coastal town with only one traffic light, where he met guitarists Nick Fotinakes and Matt DePauw, bassist Mikel Van Kranenburg and drummer Rico Rodriguez. Now heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the "Top 16 Unsigned Bands in North America," Night Riots just wrapped up their Fall Tour with K.Flay and Step Rockets, and have shared the stage with a diverse group of bands including The Mowgli's, Wild Cub, Driver Friendly, Youngblood Hawke, The Front Bottoms, Angels & Airwaves and many more.
After the tremendous success of their debut EP, "Young Lore," which saw praise from the likes of MTV, FUSE, Huffington Post, KROQ, All Things Go, NYLON, AV Club and Filter, Night Riots show no signs of slowing down. Recently signed to Sumerian Records, Night Riots has announced that their highly anticipated upcoming EP, "Howl," produced by Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Trash Talk, Waaves, Mars Volta), is set for release on January 20th, 2015.
