After climbing their way to No. 5 on SiriusXM Alt Nation’s Alt 18 Countdown with single “Contagious,” and debuting at No.17 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart for their EP “Howl(released Jan. 20th via Sumerian Records), Night Riots have released an eerie vignette for new song, “Break” – today on BULLETT Magazine. Watch the vignette, here: http://bit.ly/BullettBreak.

About the new vignette for “Break,” Night Riots frontman Travis Hawley explains, “‘Break’ conjures images of timeless youthful love.” He continues, “We represented this idea by using antique film cuts of lovers kissing. At one point these clips were considered risqué and audacious. But looking back on them from our modern perspective, they seem so romantic in their confident and daring innocence.”

With praise pouring in from the likes of Billboard, Earmilk, MTV, FUSE, Huffington Post, KROQ, All Things Go, NYLON, AV Club and Filter, and sharing recent bills with bands including Cage The Elephant, Walk The Moon, Meg Myers, OK Go, K.Flay, Step Rockets, The Mowgli’s, Wild Cub and Youngblood Hawk, NIGHT RIOTS is setting the alternative underworld ablaze as swift and smartly as their brooding, melody rich and timeless songs have already endeared them to critics. The Southern California based band has a unique melodic sensibility – delivering transcendent pop music that is both modern and timeless; as well as both sinister and romantic, with the downbeat flare of new wave, ’80s movie soundtracks. 

Produced by Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Trash Talk, Waaves, Mars), “Howl” was released on January 20th via Sumerian Records. Stream “Howl” in its entirety over on EARMILK  and Spotify. Purchase the EP on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/1wGx0NT.

Why Are Dove Cameron & Ryan McCartan So Mad? Find Out Here!

Disney stars from Disney’s Liv and Maddie, Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan, revealed the name of their band a few months ago and they decided on Vignette. However, the couple has recently learned that the name they chose for their band has already been taken! Thus, the two decided to share a video of themselves expressing how “mad” they are.

The band that took the name is not even active but Dove and Ryan still are not able to use it due to the other band already owning it. The duo is getting quite tired of trying to come up with a new name but they are looking up to their fans for a new name!

Check out the cute video Dove and Ryan made by watching it below and let us know what you think by commenting! Be sure to also let them know if you can come up with a new name for them!
