Riot Before

Fists Buried In Pockets

Say-10 3

Released on September 9, 2008

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

The Riot Before have been a band for barely two years, most of which were spent barreling down the interstates of America as they bounced from basement to basement and all manner of seedy dive bars. Despite the constant touring, they also managed to do something that very few bands can do in a decade: write a cohesive, well-crafted album, where songs work together and flow in a cleverly concocted manner that eventually amounts to a complete piece of art. Thematic elements weave in and out between songs, both musically and lyrically, to create a deceptively complex record that will continue to disclose new secrets with every listen. While each song is fully capable of standing on its own, the true beauty of the album shines through when you actually sit down and read along with the lyrics and appreciate the thought and care that went into crafting the album. If one were to describe The Riot Before’s sound, they might say something along the lines of Mike Ness singing for Against Me!, with a healthy dash of the Gaslight Anthem’s Americana rock n’ roll thrown into the mix to keep the hips swaying.

A really good folk punk CD. For fans of Against Me!, Gaslight Anthem and Rise Against. Most of the songs flow fairly well although a couple aren't very good.

"Unremarkable Pablum". If that's not an anagram for "The Riot Before", it probably should be. Eleven tracks to feel vaguely apathetic to. (Basically what I'm saying is that teenagers will love it.)
