RED LIGHT RIOT Interview + El Riot! Fest

Melbourne’s Red Light Riot are launching a new two track single, ‘In Shadows‘ / ‘Burn The Axis‘ on Sat 21 May at The Tote Hotel, Melbourne. When setting up the event, things quickly escalated and a new festival was born, El Riot! Admittedly there are a hell of a lot of festivals on at the moment but who cares when as a punter you can see 15 bands for $17 presale tickets! Absolute bargain!

We caught up with Red Light Riot and asked them about the new tracks, why they chose the bands on the lineup and The Tote for their launch, and more.

DHWYS: Red Light Riot has been around for over three years and has had a few lineup changes, can you tell us a bit about the current lineup, their backgrounds and maybe something about the band that we wouldn’t know from reading your bio?

RLR: We have a new rhythm section who has been with us since the last half of 2015. We have Carlos DeSouza on drums and Nick Ivkovic on bass, who is also in metal band Elm Street and was in female fronted rock’n’roll band The Scarlets. Our other members Kristy (Killriot), Nina (von Johannsohn) and Ed (Jones) have been with RLR since our debut gig in 2013. Kristy also fronts Gold Coast punk band Kill The Apprentice, Nina is in post punk band Stay Sharp and Ed’s last band was Hellbent Revelators with James Grim. Continue reading

ADAM COOPER (SUICIETY) – 5 Albums That Changed His Life + upcoming gigs!

Melbourne’s Suiciety have two upcoming gigs we’re really looking forward to. We’re so stoked to be working this band and used to go and see them back in the day. In case you’ve been living under a rock, they were a go to band for a lot of the international heavyweights in the ’90s, supporting the likes of Ministry, Sepultura, Fear Factory, Bodycount, Kreator, The Supersuckers, and more as well as playing the Big Day Out and Alternative Nation. They came back at the end of last year at full steam and released the Crawling Machine Edition EP out through Desert Highways. They’ve always been a harder than usual band to categorise due to their many influences and wide ranging back catalogue of songs. It goes us thinking… So we caught up with Suiciety vocalist Adam Cooper asked him what were ‘5 Albums That Changed His Life’?
