Bloodline Riot is a band formed to bring together the influences of their previous bands, explore new horizons & to release their heavier inner demons. Bloodline Riot was formed by members from 3 different prominent Rock bands in the Detroit area. "The idea was to find the best members from bands that we respected & that had made an impact musically. It was also important that we all had the same positive outlook, work-ethic & drive to take Bloodline Riot as far as possible.", says guitarist Jason Caine.
Upon the complete formation of the band, Bloodline Riot set out with a plan of action to make their strategy a reality. The first song that Bloodline Riot had written, "Burn" was soon recorded at the Loft Studios in Saline, MI with producer Andy Patalan (Taproot, Sponge) & mixed & mastered by Chuck Alkazian (Pop Evil, Trust Company) at Pearl Sound Studios in Canton, MI. The song was immediately put into rotation on 88.7FM (CIMX Windsor/Detroit) as well as spread throughout the country to internet radio stations. "Coming from different bands, we were fortunate that there was some buzz going on as to what we were up to. People were very curious to hear what the end product of these 3 different bands collaborating would sound like. 88.7FM has been supportive since day one, & we were very fortunate to see "Burn" winning contests for Most Requested on various radio stations around the country." says Caine.
Keeping the pace at non-stop, Bloodline Riot won the Ernie Ball/Best Buy Music Gear Battle of the Bands in Aug '11, and earned a slot on the Rockstar Uproar Festival Detroit line-up at DTE Energy Theater to play with Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet for my Valentine, Escape the Fate, Sevendust, Black Tide, Art of Dying & Hell or Highwater. The band has also shared the stage with nationals such as Drowning Pool, Taproot, Fuel, Nonpoint, Soil, Powerman5000, Dope, 12 Stones, James Durbin (American Idol), The Dreaming (feat. Stabbing Westward vocalist Chris Hall) & more.
Throughout the course of the band, Bloodline Riot has obtained and is currently endorsed by companies such as Spector Basses, Krank Amplification, Sennheiser, Spear Guitars, Sinister Guitar Picks, Wicked Hammer Energy Drink, Soultone Cymbals, XOX Audio Tools & Unlocal Clothing Co. Bloodline Riot proudly works hand in hand with supporting these amazing companies that have put their faith in the band based on the principle that they truly believe in the products they're endorsing.
