London-based band of rabble-rousers WALL STREET RIOTS will be putting out a self-release of the eagerly awaited single ‘One More Ride’ on September 28th. The track is backed with a very special remix of the single, by LostProphet Ian Watkins under his L’Amour La Morgue side project.
Their debut, an EP titled ‘Playground Politics’, was released digitally back in May and caused an online frenzy when sites and blogs praised them with 5/5 reviews and tipped them as the next big thing. Kerrang! Radio have since been consistently playing the EP on their unsigned show.
Although Wall Street Riots are fairly new, the musical style that blazes through in their music has been a long time in its evolution. Karnig and Charlie started out by playing nu-metal and pop-punk songs in their early teens with Mike joining once the duo began to get into hardcore and post-hardcore. After trying out numerous drummers over the years that followed, the band found Rich, honing their sound into more of a raw and aggressive pop approach.
As you might expect, their musical tastes are somewhat eclectic and when combined they look something like this - Poison The Well, Thursday, Young Love, Glassjaw, Refused, Gallows, Reuben, Biffy Clyro, Hilary Duff, Lily Allen, System of A Down plus a lot of Electro and Bassline…
WSR are known amongst the people lucky enough to have seen them live so far for their riotous performances at clubs and all-ages gigs. The band have been running their own monthly night RIOT HOUSE which has gone down a storm - the last one at the Barfly the police were called after fans were rioting outside.
The band will be touring the UK this Autumn. More dates to follow…
