“I’m bleeding from the ears again” screams vocalist and guitar player Scott Rinderknecht on the opening track off Elm Street Riot’s Waiting For A Sound EP, “I’m A Mess”. Fueled by fuzz boxes and excess, the song propels through a thunderous assault of post adolescent irresponsibility that defines this bands style. These early twentysomethings from Detroit, Michigan are determined to make a name for themselves with their ruthless garage rock theatrics. Formed in the fall of 2009 at Western Michigan University, Elm Street Riot has generated a buzz worthy of attention with their nostalgic yet refreshing sound. They are not afraid to wear their influences on their shoulders; channeling modern and classic rock outfits such as The Whites Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, Led Zeppelin, and The Strokes. With soulful vocals, bluesy guitar, bouncing bass lines, and merciless drums, Elm Street Riot is sure to make your ears bleed in the best possible way.
