ABOUT CRIMSON RIOT:
Crimson Riot was formed in July of 2017 when their prior band of six years - The Roxy Gunn Project - took a drastic turn as their lead guitarist had to leave the band due to medical issues. Having a heavy punk influence, the remaining three members decided to go a different direction with their music and follow their punk roots. Virtually overnight, they created Crimson Riot.
Though Crimson Riot is still in its infancy, their prior experience performing together over six years and their reputation allowed them to hit the ground running and acquire several great gigs right out of the gate. Crimson Riot was very well received by former fans of RGP. Audiovein Magazine said, “Yes! This is what you guys should have been doing all along. Perfect!” Once the word got out, many promoters quickly jumped on booking them on shows opening for touring headliners. They even caught the attention of legendary punk icons Darrin Pfeiffer and Greg Hetson from the Punk Rock Karaoke band and were brought in to open at the Viper Room in Hollywood, CA. With the release of their first single and music video, “Here’s The Bad News Laura (The Shake Machine Is Down)” a quirky, pop-punk anthem, that the masses could relate to, became an instant hit prompting fans to bring milkshakes to shows.
Crimson Riot is fronted by singer/guitarist Roxy Gunn with Chris Reject on bass guitar and additional vocals, all held together by Ryan J on drums. Their songs are heavy, catchy, pop punk anthems which get the crowd immersed into each story with music that delivers a high energy soundtrack for multiple dancing styles and head-bopping.
ABOUT THE REVIVAL:
The Revival is made up of Justin Carder (vocals/keys), Jason Juadines (guitars/backing vocals), Julius Anglin (drums/percussion), and Lukas Golson (bass). The band formed late in 2017 after Julius and Jason parted ways with Paper Tigers, a local Las Vegas band. They continued writing and recording music and soon enlisted the help of Justin Carder who was performing regular gigs up and down the Las Vegas strip as a solo artist. The merging of talents created a unique blend of soulful rock music and the addition of Lukas Golson on bass rounded out that soulful rock sound.
Their first task as a new band was to create music, record it, and release it before playing live. However, The Revival was asked by a local talent agent if they would be interested in auditioning for a new series called Who Will Rock You. The boys competed against several bands auditioning for a spot on the show and were selected to be one of only four bands to compete for 25k in Las Vegas in front of famed radio personality Bobby Bones and Emmy award winning singer Maggie Rose. The Revival is now releasing their first single, So Long, which will be followed by a 6 song ep. Watch The Revival on Who Will Rock You when the first episode airs on Thursday, May 10th and be sure to download their new single, So Long!
