Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (lead guitar) found each other again in a Bushwick basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras' early material. Inspired by late 70’s punk, but mixing in aspects of garage and indie that followed, Honduras played Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. After bringing in Josh Wehle to play drums they added a new bass player in Paul Lizarraga (the Denzels) to round out the band’s signature polished edge. Their more recent writing has included elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks for an intellectually developed and interesting sound. While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Rolling Stone, NME, Noisey, Impose, and Nylon along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Blur, Metz, Fidlar, Twin Peaks, Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs. The first single from their upcoming debut LP, Paralyzed, is currently in regular rotation on Sirius Radio XMU and the band was just featured in NME's On The Radar section. On stage the formula continues, where four good friends exhibit a savvy devil-may-care tightness. Their engaging stage presence is both apropos to their influences and forever exciting to witness in a young and surging project. Their upcoming debut LP is called Rituals, and will be released in fall 2015.
All Riot is a central Connecticut based indie rock band. Blending a wide array of styles from singalong synthesizer psych pop to theatrical guitar driven post-punk, All Riot is an unconventional collaborative art project that shouldn't work, but (sometimes) does. While All Riot's second full length, Crossfire Traffic, takes the band to a more refined level of melodic and rhythmic punk intensity. The band is currently working on more challenging loop and sample driven experiments.
