With swinging fists The Riot broke out onto the music scene in the summer of 2007. Influenced by performers such as Jimmy Eat World, Anberlin, and Jawbreaker they started to establish a sound all of their own. Since then The Riot has played alongside acts such as We The Kings, Four Year Strong, Cartel, and Forever The Sickest Kids. The Riot's dedication to their fans was reciprocated when the fans voted and won The Riot a spot on the Ernie Ball Stage at both the 2008 and 2009 Warped Tour. Their self released CD "Sitting Duck Syndrome" had hit the streets in January 2010 with much
anticipation. The Riot kicked off the release with a month long tour stopping at 10 Hot Topic stores for acoustic performances and followed up the next couple years with multiple tours. Winning their way onto the Van's Warped Tour for the 3rd year (08'-10'), The Riot's fans also voted them onto the Rockstar Energy Uproar fest in 2013 as well. With their full length album "Animation" available now, The Riot continues to devote their time to composing music they love, connecting with fans and ultimately reaching their goal of putting a recognized stamp on the music scene.
