We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Riot Stares’ new EP Let the Phase Speak (listen below), which is scheduled to be released on 7″ vinyl soon through Bitter Melody Records (US) and Speedowax Records (UK/EU). There will be a Euro exclusive color as well. More info on the physical 7″ coming soon.
Riot Stares hail from Charleston, SC and feature former and current members of Discourse, WVRM, False Light and more. They take influence from early Refused and Helmet but have a sound that they have made their own.
Last year, Bitter Melody and Headfirst! Records released the band’s first EP, an eponymous 7″, and followed it up with this year’s Let the Phase Speak, recorded by Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business. This second EP continues with the vision they set out with in the first record both artistically and musically.
Riot Stares is:
Brad Marino – vocals
Issy Varoumas – guitar
Patrick Thomas – guitar
Dylan Walker – bass
Tyler Hall – drums
