Rat City Riot was formed in 2003 with the sole purpose of rocking. Throughout many trials and tribulations, broken down vans, cancelled shows, and stolen equipment they kept true to their roots and it finally worked out for the better. Rat City Riot signed a record contract with TAANG! Records out of San Diego, CA in late 2004 with the scheduled release of "Dirty Rotten Games" set as January 15th 2005. Shortly after that the planned world domination began and the trail of burnt out PA speakers, shredded tires, and shattered beer bottles was the only way to follow this band on their road to ruin. Fast forward 2 years, a few lineup changes, and over 40,000+ tour miles later, Rat City Riot joined up with Street Anthem Records and set up the release of their newest recording; "The Open Road E.P." for August 2007 with many more planned road miles ahead.
