City Riots Announce Debut Album “Sea Of Bright Lights’ & 2012 Tour

Fresh off the road from a small run of club shows, City Riots are excited to announce the SEA OF BRIGHT LIGHTS TOUR to celebrate the release of their debut album. The Adelaideoutfit is headed to ten intimate musical hotspots on their biggest headlinejaunt to date including a very special album launch show in their hometown on the day of release.

“SEA OF BRIGHT LIGHTS” has been a long time coming for City Riots, but as they say, good things come to those who wait. Intent on making an album in its truest form, all songs were written and recorded under the ears of Paul ‘Woody’ Annison in less than six months.

Revealed in July, first single ‘Wait For You’ has welcomed a swell of online attention and radio airplay – you can check it out here. The track was also recently remixed by Adelaide producer Luke Million and is available for a free download here.

“This track is lusciously international sounding with beautifully layered dream pop vocals and perfectly textured guitar moments. Definitely a band to keep your eye on.” Tone Deaf

“This is a group which does not seem to have fulfilled their huge potential, but after hearing ‘Wait For You’, they may be on the verge of doing just that” – Indie Shuffle

Those who were lucky enough to catch City Riots at their recent run of club shows were treated to a handful of new tracks from the forthcoming long player weaved into their firmly established live show.

Before heading out on tour, Adelaide punters will be treated to a special hometown album launch show on Friday, October 26th – the day of release. This all ages affair is set to light up the stage at one of Adelaide’s finest live music venues, The Promethean. Originally a church, the beautifully renovated space now stands as a theatre and will see City Riots play “SEA OF BRIGHT LIGHTS” from start to finish. Special guests throughout the evening will join the four-piece on stage. Tickets are limited and on sale now.

“SEA OF BRIGHT LIGHTS” is out October 26th in Australia and New Zealand through Inertia.
