Riot for Romance Teases New Album Focused On Casting Off Negativity

Riot for Romance has never shied away from tackling heavy themes in their music. In their self-titled EP that introduced tracks like “The World And Its Weight” and “Less For Regret,” the band explored the complexities of identity and self-discovery. Now, in their upcoming LP, they are delving even deeper into the human experience by examining toxic worldviews and the impact they have on our lives. 

The band’s frontman, Jason Hansen, revealed in a recent interview that the new album will be a natural progression from their self-titled EP. He shared that the band is experimenting with different amps and guitars to create a layered sound with a range of tones. The synth and keys will also feature more prominently in the upcoming record, creating an atmospheric backdrop for the evocative lyrics. 

Thematically, the forthcoming album will focus on the idea of unburdening ourselves from toxic worldviews that we have been handed and exploring how we form our own identities. In a world that can often feel overwhelming, Riot for Romance’s music offers a sense of community and empowerment to listeners. 

It’s no surprise that the band’s self-titled EP has earned them recognition and success on radio and streaming charts. Their unique blend of post-punk, shoegaze, post & alt-rock creates a distinct sound that is both emotional and cathartic. With tracks like “Less For Regret,” “The World And Its Weight,” and “Karma Police,” Riot for Romance continues to push boundaries and challenge the status quo.
