New Wave of Alt Rock


This band is phenomenal. Absolutely great and their music is truly refreshing in this day and age. Their music makes you want to jump and dance but also has a nostalgic feel to the likes of The Cure. Shine is one of my favorite songs, but really, you won't be disappointed with any of their songs. Oh My Heart is the perfect anthem type song while Contagious is...well...contagious :D

Good stuff.


Congrats on continually putting out good stuff guys.

Love the direction Night Riots is going towards. The words have meanings and create a visual picture. I love the new music! It’s contagious!

About Night Riots

California's Night Riots make anthemic, synth-heavy dance-rock centered on lead vocalist Travis Hawley. Hailing from Templeton, California, a small town outside San Luis Obispo, Night Riots began as a high school band featuring Hawley on drums with Matt DePauw on guitar and Mikel Van Kranenburg on bass. By 2010, Hawley had moved to lead vocals with Rico Rodriguez taking over drumming duties. That same year, going under the name PK, the group released the self-produced album Into the Roaring. Two years later they returned with the Lost Boys Sessions EP. Around this time, they formally adopted the name Night Riots and released their second EP, Young Lore.

Rather than sign with a label, Night Riots built up a following by touring regularly with a focus on playing multiple shows in each town, including appearances at local high schools. The concept worked, and the group developed a loyal fan base despite its comparatively low public profile. In 2015, Night Riots released their third studio EP, Howl, featuring the single "Contagious." Debut album Love Gloom followed in late 2016, accompanied by the singles "Nothing Personal" and "Fangs." Released on the Sumerian label, it made Billboard's Heatseekers chart. ~ Matt Collar
