THE FAME RIOT are an electro-rock/pop glam duo from Tacoma, WA, comprised by brothers Liz Scarlett and Shazam "Tea Time" Watkins. They have come to completely smash the ears and eyes of the planet into an absolute fugue state of mind.
"THE FAME RIOT is not a band; it's a religion. The pair of brothers is at the forefront of a shift in musical style and culture, drawing influence from the last 4 decades of rock, pop, electronica, disco, and everything in-between. You don't have to follow the crowd to the bar...now you can go to THE FAME RIOT."
They caught our attention last year with their single "Limits", which peaked at #36 in our Best Track of 2012 chart. That same year the band released their singles "Heart Stray", "Shelah", "The Finale". This year the band have already shared two singles "Two Tribes" (out now), and the newest "Physical Altercation" accompanied by the band's first official video, which you can watch here.
The duo generate effervescent electro pop and although they've only been playing together for one year, they've already become known for their unhinged live shows and animated stage presence at Northwest stages at The High Dive, The Comet, LoveFest and more. Influenced by the likes of Bowie, The Darkness, and Hot Chip, The Fame Riot is modernizing glam rock while doing their hometown proud.
They have shared the stage with the likes of: Chromeo, Grouplove, Mickey Avalon, DJ Shadow, The Joy Formidable, Wallpaper, Con Bro Chill, Adam LaClave, and many more.
The band are currently working on new material and keeping themselves busy with live performances. Stay tuned in for updates!
