RIOT in Paradise / Bio

Riot in Paradise is a four piece Melodic Hardcore/Post-Hardcore band from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Originally formed in 2011, the band has undergone a few member changes to become what they are today. These changes have brought about a more aggressive side to their music since their first EP “Soundtrack to Our Collapse” was released in January 2012. The band draws influence from a variety of musical tastes including Vanna, Counterparts, The Ghost Inside, and Every Time I Die. These influences combined to create the bands latest EP “This is Who We Are” released November 2013.

Riot in Paradise prides themselves on an energetic live performance and has had the opportunity over the past three years to play with many local and national/international touring acts such as Fall City Fall, Take the Earth Beneath Us, Liferuiner, Being as an Ocean, No Bragging Rights, Silverstein, Comeback Kid, Protest the Hero and Misery Signals. Riot in Paradise also embarked on an independently managed Western Canadian tour in summer 2014.

The band is currently based in Edmonton, AB and is writing/recording their first full length record.
