Riot for Romance, a trio of musicians and friends who reside in separate states (Georgia, Colorado, and Florida), released their self-titled EP, digitally and on cassette and lathe cut vinyl, last February with Friend Club Records (Battle Ave, Common Sage, Eugenius) and Steadfast Records (Brandston, Zao, Golden Streets of Paradise).
Next week the band will perform a trio of shows in Georgia and Florida (dates below). These dates are their first since playing the Furnace Fest afterparty in Alabama in September.
For the un-indoctrinated, the members of the post punk/shoegaze/alternative rock band aren’t newbies by a long stretch—Jason Hansen (vocals, guitars, keys), Brett Miotti (bass), and Kelly Nunn (drums, guitars) have over 20 years of experience. They’ve toured, logged studio time, produced internationally distributed releases, performed at music festivals, and have been played on the radio.
Individually, the members of Riot for Romance cut their teeth performing in a variety of acts including Sleeping by the Riverside, the Sincerity Guild, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Underoath, and Never Enough.
