The indie rock and roll outfit known as Night Riots formed in 2007 when they released the highly regarded EP entitled "Casting Shadows." After a year of forming a strong following in the central and northern parts of California Night Riots released a 3 song untitled demo exhibiting their new musical direction. The new three songs show a maturity in song structure and composition that attracts a much wider range of listeners while still keeping the spark that attracted fans in the beginning. Night Riots released their latest full length "Into the Roaring" on January 8th, 2010. Members include Travis Hawley (lead vocals), Nick Fotinakes (guitar, vocals), Mikel Van Kranenburg (bass, vocals), Matt DePauw (lead guitar, vocals), and Kevin Menesez (drums).
