Inside Riot is a high energy, harmony driven alt/pop rock band based out of the Inland Empire of Southern California. Calling to arms audiences with songs of lust for the human experience, performer-at-heart, Fawn Baxter and David Strickland, the visionary behind the music, lead the charge with their powerful vocal and guitar melodies backed by Drummer Mike's chest-pounding rhythms and Matt McNight's heart-rattling bass lines.
Founded at midnight, New Years 2013, Inside Riot has quickly established a reputation as a band on the rise. In just their first year, Inside Riot shared the stage with SoCal powerhouses including Assuming We Survive, One Hundred Proof, XNO, and national acts Everclear, Smile Empty Soul, Voodoo Glow Skulls, and Divide The Day. Headlining numerous shows in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire in 2014, being featured on the IE Media Group TV show, “Musicology,” performing in Honolulu, Hawaii and touring the mid-western U.S., Inside Riot has proven to be a band to see live.
The band released their first music video in 2014 and is spending the first quarter of 2015 writing and recording new music. Grammy Award-winner Tom Weir just completed mastering of the band's first release of the new year.
