US rock band, THE MERCURY RIOTS, is a new band formed by members of popular LA bands Warner DriveThe Brave Ones, and the infamous Bullets And Octane, this power-trio “super-band” brings a sense of swagger and prowess to the stage.

With soaring guitars from Felipe Rodrigo, unique and charismatic vocals from the bassist/frontman Zachary Kibbee and a rocksteady pulse from Jonny Udell on drums, THE MERCURY RIOTS will definitely be a crowd-pleaser when they inevitably hit the road.

I’d known Jonny for years around the LA music scene, having seen Warner Drive many times. And Felipe and I had already played together in my project and The Brave Ones”, says Zachary Kibbee, the electric and powerful voice of the band. “So when we played together in Bullets it just clicked really well. So well in fact, that we really wanted to explore more music together, we just couldn’t help ourselves.

Enter THE MERCURY RIOTS, a healthy combination of loud, fast, jet-fuel powered rock n roll. Look for the band’s debut single ‘Save Me A Drink‘, which is coming soon.
