Sophomore Album “INVISIBLE EMPIRE” Available January 31st on Metalville Records
While touring with Monster Magnet provided them with some great times and afforded them the opportunity to perform around the world, each communicated a desire to express their own musical ideas.
During their time off the road, the pair began exploring the possibilities of creating their own band . Bob began to lay down some i
deas to get the ball rolling come 2007.
Bob while recording ideas that would become many of the songs on RIOTGOD's first CD, also sought out musicians that would fill out the guitar and vocal slots for the then nameless band. Contacted first was Garrett Sweeny for guitar.
For the vocals, many possible names had been discussed, including some notable voices familiar via other established bands yet in the end the local NJ connection would lead to Mark Sunshine.
RIOTGOD did its first mini-tour in 2009, hitting the road with fellow NJ rockers The Friends of Bill Wilson. RIOTGOD would visit the US mid-west and Canada, playing venues such as Chicago's Double Door, Detroit's Blondies, Toronto's Bovine Sex Club as well as some lesser known colorful establishments along the way.
RIOTGOD is now back – with their second album. More straight, more rock, more stoner – more RIOTGOD.
The album is available for pre-order HERE.
