THE RIOT – Happy Tears Tour

on tour to support their EP "Happy Tears"

Presented by:

THE RIOT and Anywhere Festival

Presented by THE RIOT and Anywhere Festival.

THE RIOT couldn’t have taken any other name. The noun that hangs above the Gold Coast-based three-piece is one that implies simmering tension, followed by chaotic, profound release. It speaks to community, shared struggle, an anarchic form of altruism and an altruistic form of anarchy. In one word, it tells a story of the voiceless claiming a voice, the diminished reclaiming space after years of being ignored. It is a word that connotes fission and fusion — of cultures, textures, classes, ideologies. THE RIOT, it is noun, verb, and guiding light. It is the only word that could possibly encompass all that this young but incendiary band represents: truth and power, rage and relief.
