The Chicago-based melodic punk band The Last Great Riot is back at it again! The punk trio consists of Mario Mazzone on bass, Scott Durand on drums, and John A Beavers on guitar/vocals. It’s taken a year and a half of writing and performing since their debut album was released. Now, this trio from the windy city is ready to get back out there. This time with their second recording Cash-Only-Dive-Bar Phone Booth.
Cash-Only-Dive-Bar Phone Booth was produced with Chris Shern at Seven-Sided Studio B. It packs in loud old-school punk with simple melodies. Especially when you mix in the powerful backing vocals with hints of riff-rock, metal, garage-rock, and hardcore.
Cash-Only-Dive-Bar Phone Booth can be found on Bandcamp for streaming or free download. Check it out here: https://thelastgreatriot.bandcamp.com/album/cash-only-dive-bar-phone-booth
