The final day of Riot Fest included classic punk albums performed in full by Bad Religion, Suicidal Tendencies, and Fear, plus sets from Run the Jewels, Father John Misty, Blondie, Johnny Marr, Superchunk, Dillinger Four, The Wonder Years, and more.
The band includes Lifetime vocalist Ari Katz, guitarist Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, Bad Religion), Bouncing Souls members Brian Kienlen and Pete Steinkopf on guitar and bass, and Bouncing Souls pal Danny Windas (aka “Dubs”) on drums.
We ”did it so quickly, with no overdubs, no nothing. We recorded it like I haven’t recorded in a very, very long time. Just getting a good take and that’s it. It was fun to make music like that – it was exhilarating,” says vocalist Ari Katz.
