Since launching in 2019, THE RIOT have received praise from Blunt Magazine, NME, Hysteria, Happy Magazine, Sniffers, Iggy Magazine and Life Without Andy; airplay support from triple j, 4ZZZ, FBi Radio and The Faction; video additions on rage and MTV Upload and a slew of playlist additions on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube Music.


Now, THE RIOT share their Debut EP HAPPY TEARS!, featuring singles ‘Violence’ and first single, ‘Idea Of You’ which Hysteria Mag praise as a “slick and sharply textured outing”. The 5-track EP, written and recorded in 2-weeks in Sydney, was produced primarily by Club Angel and includes the transfixing ‘Oxygen’, ‘Lost and Found’ and ‘Justice’, which was produced by sought-after producer Tasker.


Known for their electrifying live performances, THE RIOT who have previously supported DMA’S, WAAX and Nerve, are thrilled to be taking their high-energy live shows back on the road. Fans can expect to hear new tracks from their HAPPY TEARS! EP, as well previously released singles, for what will be an unforgettable experience on their third East Coast Headline Tour in May.  Tickets on sale now.
