Templeton, California is the home of indie rock band Night Riots, who have made a lot of noise over the last couple of years with accolades such as “one of the top 16 unsigned bands in North America” from Rolling Stone, and one of “The Most Criminally Overlooked Artists Of 2012” from MTV. Their latest EP, Young Lore was funded via a successful campaign on IndieGOGo, and has just been released and is available to stream in full via the Groovebug iPad app. Fans of Friendly Fires, The Killers and The Cure should all check out the new record.
