Riot at the Dojo was born in Bellingham, Washington on Election Night 2016. One year later this dynamic new band is poised to be the soundtrack of the resistance. In these troubled times of division, Riot at the Dojo speaks out with a clear voice and demands to be heard. The Riot's first EP “Alien America” was released worldwide through Sony/The Orchard January 5, 2018.
Riot at the Dojo was formed with the simple idea of fusing genres in search of a new sound. With influences from Hip Hop and Rock to Punk and Surf to EDM and Dancehall, The Riot is a one-of-a-kind experience. This traditional four piece band does it with no tricks or gimmicks, just pure explosive energy and mind-bending lyrics. Riot at the Dojo consists of D4v3 on Guitar, Pete on Bass, Monte on Drums, and D.O.M. (Dirty Old Man) on Vocals.
**In 2007 D.O.M. (formerly Richard Roe) won the Vibe Magazine Verses National Rap Battle with the band Old Skooly High.
