Riot In Toytown / Bio

Like all bands worth their salt, Riot In Toytown kicked around in obscurity while honing their craft. Tim Chilman (guitar), Matt Whitelock (bass) and Gangles (drums) first auditioned then mercilessly executed countless vocalists, until Maurice Rodriguez came riding into town on a woolly mammoth. His war cries were enough to convince them that the magic ingredient previously missing from their sonic soup had been divinely sprinkled from above by some god of rock.
And lo! It came to be.

By April 2012 their masterplan was in place. They conquered the sticky carpets of Melbourne town, from The Espy to The Evelyn and all points in between, supporting bands such as Engine Three Seven, Branch Arterial and Bellusira along the way. With influences including Electric Mary, Shihad, and Chevelle, Riot In Toytown transcend their breeding to become a thorough-bred racehorse of melodic rock - one you’ll want to
ride until you die.

Their debut EP - Burn It Down - Now available on iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/au/artist/riot-in-toytown/id588186014?uo=4) and CD Baby (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/riotintoytown)
