About

Swedish pop quintet Join The Riot was brought together because of their shared love for pop and rock music. The sound has been described by bloggers throughout the world as infectious, melodic indie with a sunny and dreamy vibe. The music will get you moving and singing along and has often been compared to bands such as Coldplay, Phoenix, St Lucia and M83.

Emerging from different corners of Stockholm, Sweden, the mixed souls of Henrik, Jonas, André and Simon met at the city’s popular rock music school and started the band in 2013. Join The Riot became a thing on the Swedish indie scene right from the start when the first singles Ménage à Trois, Queen Marmalade, Karotte and Louis were picked up on national radio and met by words of encouragement from different blogs around the world. In 2014, the band landed “Wow”, a track from their first EP “Buckle Up”, on the Scandinavian Volkswagen commercial. Patrik joined in 2015 when the band went on their first international tour to China. That same year the band engaged in a somewhat unorthodox recording project which took place in a public display window attached to hotel Scandic Malmen on the busiest street corner of Stockholm. After one month of hard work recording, their debut album “A Glass Cage Of Emotions” was completed in July and released in December 2015. In Dec-Jan 2016-2017 Join The Riot went on their second tour to China, which became a starting shot to finish their up coming EP “Children Of The Sun”. This new material is a compilation of songs the band has been working on during the past year. This time, you’re on a voyage deeper into the core of the band where you will find yourself immersed in various landscapes, from epic arena rock to the naked singer-songwriter style ballad, still keeping it Join The Riot. In June the band's new single "Pretenders" is set to be release followed by “Children Of The Sun” EP in beginning of Oktober, with a release gig at the prestigious Berns saloons in. Join The Riot is a flock of Stockholmian boys with a passion for pop... and also the best rock band in Sweden.
