The Riot is an alternative rock band hailing from Central Pa, notorious for mixing their pop-punk sound with their punk rock roots. With their high energy performances, extensive touring experience, 'The Riot' have found their way onto larger stages such as The Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival and multiple Vans Warped Tours.
Initially comprised of members Ryan Henderson (lead vocals/guitar), Jonathan Fye (lead guitar), Brad Henderson (bass guitar), and Ryan Williams (drums) they recorded and released their introductory E.P. “Sitting Duck Syndrome” in 2010. With the release of their full-length debut album “Animation” in 2014, The Riot honed their sound and earned their identity in the music industry.
After the loss of their guitarist, they quickly recruited local musician (Lee Fenstamaker) before embarking on a 5 year hiatus. In 2019 they reformed and solidified their lineup by adding lead guitarist (Nathan Spangler) and continue to write new music in anticipation of releasing the follow up album to Animation.
