Starlight Riot releases BRING OUT YOUR LOVE
Slated for release in July 2017, "Bring Out Your Love" is Starlight Riot's first album with the group's new line up. Milwaukee natives Josh Lukkes (guitar, vocals), Brandi Liantonio (bass, vocals) and David Robinson (drums, vocals) tracked the album Oct-Dec 2016 in Josh's Rock N Roll Library studio.
"Bring Out Your Love" started life under a different working title ("Feed a Fever"). While the band was rehearsing the material, the Sherman Park riots broke out. At rehearsal that week, the song "Bring Out Your Love" was born - a song that balances hope and anger in our turbulent times.
With influences ranging from the Pixies to Green Day, The Replacements, and Smashing Pumpkins, Starlight Riot is firmly planted in the indie rock/power pop tradition. "Musically, we like to see where we can take 3 people, 3 chords, and some harmonies," said Robinson. "Our songs run the gamut, from straight up punk to thoughtful melodies."
This is Starlight Riot's third album - the first with Brandi Liantonio. A classicly trained orchestral bassist, Brandi brings range and depth to Starlight Riot's sound. "It felt natural with Brandi from the very first practice," said Lukkes. "She's a fantastic player with tons of chemistry."
