Mind Riot are a Hard, Alternative Rock band from Long Branch. They were featured on Jersey Rock back in September. Their influences include Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and Down.
The band is a close-knit unit made up of family members and lifelong friends. That chemistry has translated into some seriously strong material. Mind Riot’s debut, self-titled album dropped back in 2016 and it rocks hard. You can score a download at mindriotnj.bandcamp.com or order a physical copy at mindriotband.com.
We’ll do a track from Mind Riot’s debut album on Jersey Rock on Tuesday January 31. Lead Singer Mike Rainone will call in to the show to discuss the upcoming Jersey Rock Showcase and preview what Mind Riot has in store for 2017.
