Hailing from Charleston, SC, Riot Stares is a badass new band who just dropped a refreshing demo out of nowhere. While lots of bands are currently trying to play the "90's metallic hardcore" sound, few bands are willing to explore the particular niche that these guys have honed in on, and few bands find that perfect balance between nailing their influences perfectly and not sounding too derivative. Taking heavy cues from the more "out there" side of things, Riot Stares' sound falls somewhere between SNAPCASE, 108, and KISS IT GOODBYE. If you took one look at the artwork and thought "this looks like a Tim Singer band", this demo is absolutely for you.
