Night Riots

Coming off the tremendous success of the band’s “Young Lore” EP, So-Cal’s resident rockers, Night Riots have officially kicked off their Fall Tour with K.Flay. The 21-city tour will run through November 1st, with Night Riots making a pit stop for their highly anticipated New York show debut during this year’s CMJ Music Marathon.

NIGHT RIOTS is setting the alternative underworld ablaze as swift and smartly as their brooding, melody rich and timeless songs have already endeared them to critics. The Southern California based band has a unique melodic sensibility – delivering transcendent pop music that is both modern and timeless; as well as both sinister and romantic, with the downbeat flare of new wave, ’80s movie soundtracks.


Frontman Travis Hawley spent five years in England before moving to a small coastal town with only one traffic light, where he met guitarists Nick Fotinakes and Matt DePauw, bassist Mikel Van Kranenburg and drummer Rico Rodriguez. Now heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the “Top 16 Unsigned Bands in North America,” Night Riots have shared the stage with a diverse group of bands including The Mowgli’s, Wild Cub, Driver Friendly, Youngblood Hawke, The Front Bottoms, Angels & Airwaves and many more.    


The band has an amazing year, with tastemaker rock station KROQ throwing their support behind the band via their “Locals Only” events, and critical praise pouring in from the likes of MTV, FUSE, Huffington Post, All Things Go, Nylon Guys, AV Club, FILTER + more. The impressive creative heft of the “Spiders” single and Young Lore EP was just the warm-up – the band is set to release new music later this year.
