Redlands, CA

Inside Riot is a high energy, harmony driven alt/pop rock band based out of the Inland Empire of Southern California (that sounds like what Johnny and June would sound like if they were Generation Y-ers with a nonstop itunes playlist of KROQ bands). Calling to arms audiences with songs of lust for the human experience, performer-at-heart, Fawn Baxter and David Strickland, the visionary behind the music, lead the charge with their powerful vocal and guitar melodies backed by Drummer Mike's chest-pounding rhythms and Matt McNight's heart-rattling bass lines. Founded at midnight, New Years 2013, Inside Riot has quickly established a reputation as a band on the rise. In just under a year, Inside Riot has opened for SoCal powerhouses including Assuming We Survive, One Hundred Proof, XNO, and national acts Everclear, Smile Empty Soul, Voodoo Glow Skulls, and Divide The Day. Headlining the 2013 Redlands Artist Collective at the historic Fox Theater, being featured on the IE Media Group TV show, "Musicology," and winning a battle of the bands to play at Hawaiian Brian's in Honolulu, Hawaii with a writeup in Rock N Roll Industries Magazine, Inside Riot has proven to be a band to see live.
