The Weekend Riot recently announced that they’ll be joining their friend Bailey McConnell on his “Chrystalise Tour” this August! Bruce and Johnny are making their UK debut this August, bringing their infectious pop melodies and sing along choruses across the pond.
The Weekend Riot are all about fun, quirky videos and it’s no surprise their brand new video for “25 Minutes” has little Easter eggs scattered throughout it! In the band’s first ever Weekend Riot Podcast, or “Riotcast,” Bruce and Johnny spoke about the shout outs you can expect in the video. You might recognize some familiar scenes from some of the cover videos the band has done. And did you spot producer Ace Enders?

The Weekend Riot have discovered the perfect recipe for catchy songs. Follow carefully to ensure the best results: one part Hot Chelle Rae, one part MKTO, a dash of pop punk lyrics, stir in a ukulele, and finish with a hint of whistles. Mix well, serve chilled with harmonies to garnish.
Each track on the Weekend Riot’s debut EP is different, showing a different side of the band. You can hear Bruce Wiegner and Johnny Costa’s range of influences in the writing and melodies – these two work together to create some memorable songs. Their debut EP, produced by Ace Enders (of The Early November), is solid from start to finish, and one of our favorite debuts. We can’t wait to hear more from this talented duo!

It’s Friday the 13th – might be superstitious for some, but if you’re Taylor Swift it’s the perfect day to drop your new music video for “Style.” Watch the video below, but first check out some of our favorite “Style” covers!
1. THE HEYDAZE
We are obsessed with their rap verse. Kick it with THE HEYDAZE, bae!
We didn’t realized how much we needed a “punk goes pop” version of this song until we heard this.
3. The Weekend Riot
We love how they break down pop songs to an acoustic guitar & a ukelele.
4. Forever In Your Mind
Keeping acoustic guitars in style.
Pop duo The Weekend Riot are an artist you need to know in 2015. Coming from the punk scene, they took their (secret) love of pop music to create a new project and The Weekend Riot was born! Johnny Costa (vocals, ukulele) and Bruce Wiegner (vocals, guitar) went into the studio with producer Ace Enders to create acoustic driven pop that’s both energetic and catchy. They released their first single, “25 Minutes,” back in December and are gearing up to release their debut EP “Remember This Night” in March, thanks to the support of their fans.
We sat down with The Weekend Riot before their show at Webster Hall and talked about what we can expect from their upcoming EP, which artists they’d love to collaborate with, and who they would totally fangirl over. Watch our interview below and get to know more about The Weekend Riot!
Pre-orders are up now for the “Remember This Night” EP. You can pickup a copy on iTunes or visit The Weekend Riot’s official store for packages!
Pop duo The Weekend Riot just released their second single called “Remember This Night” from their debut EP of the same name expected out March 9th.

Pre-orders for The Weekend Riot’s debut EP are available on The Weekend Riot’s official website and include everything from a physical copy of the EP to a custom song or a Skype session with the band!
