Exploding onto the thriving Minneapolis scene in the fall of 2005, White Light Riot are brothers Mike (vocals, guitar) and Mark (drums) Schwandt, Joe Christenson (lead guitar), and Dan Larsen (bass). White Light Riot released their first full-length, Atomism, for 50 Entertainment, in late 2007. Produced by Brent Sigmeth (Grant Hart, They Might Be Giants), the album is a lightning-hot 50 minutes of brilliant, swaggering pop, laced with jagged hooks and shot through with anthemic choruses.
Minneapolis-based band White Light Riot has a rockin live show.
