Los Angeles, CA – January 20th – After climbing their way to No. 7 on SiriusXM Alt Nation’s Alt 18 Countdown and breaking into the Top 50 on the Alt Radio Chart with new single Contagious,” Night Riots have officially released their highly anticipated new EP, Howltoday, January 20th, via Sumerian Records.

Produced by Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Trash Talk, Waaves, Mars Volta), Howl, was written while the band was touring in promotion of their 2013 EP release, Young Lore. “We escaped and hit away at Palmquist Studios with our producer [Eric Palmquist], driving out our demons, exploring them and channeling the stories into our music,” explains Hawley. “We pushed ourselves harder than we ever have before to break free of any creative boxes we had surrounded ourselves with in the past. What we came up with were songs written for the night. They are songs for driving at dusk through the desert or for lightless back roads with the moon coming through the trees. They are stories of life’s yearning and acceptance along with the duality of life… that without darkness there is no light.”


With praise pouring in from the likes of Billboard, Earmilk, MTV, FUSE, Huffington Post, KROQ, All Things Go, NYLON, AV Club and Filter, and sharing recent bills with bands including Cage The Elephant, Walk The Moon, Meg Myers, OK Go, K.Flay, Step Rockets, The Mowgli’s, Wild Cub and Youngblood Hawk, 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.


Night Riots is Travis Hawley (Lead Vocals/Synth), Nick Fotinakes (Guitar), Matt DePauw (Guitar), Mikel Van Kranenburg (Bass) and Rico Rodriguez (Drums). For more info, please visit:
