River's Edge Bands & Artists

The Wire Riots

Founded in January 2012, The Wire Riots emerged from the remnants of The Wine the Women and the Bomb and Ghosts of Roanoke Island. This combination produced a veritable Indie Rock Super Group with music that reveals influences from post-British Invasion garage rock, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, punk rock, and post-punk. 

The Wire Riots sound has been compared to The Pixies, Modest Mouse, The Killers, The Mars Volta, and Cage The Elephant. The band also garners much attention for its prolific and passionate stage presence during live shows. The Wire Riots' spectrum of influence reaches beyond the US with fans in the UK, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Canada, and Poland.
