CODE RED RIOT originated as a cathartic musical outlet for Corky Gainsford, formerly of the band OTHERWISE.
Known primarily as a drummer, Corky decided to transition into the role of chief songwriter and frontman, following in the footsteps of Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Sully Erna (Godsmack) and Blake Allison (Devour The Day). The band’s hard rock sound revolves around anthemic choruses, melodic riffs, and soul-searching lyrics, balanced on top of a hard-hitting rhythmic groove.
In 2017, after posting the band’s early demo of “Living Low” on Facebook, the song was quickly picked up by Sirius/XM Octane and several terrestrial radio stations nationwide, without any record label, promo team, or industry machine pushing the product. “It went over like gangbusters,” proclaimed Frank Pain, Program Director for KEYJ Rock 108. “One listener said, ‘This is the next generation of rock’.” This response was quickly noticed by Sony RED Music, who signed the band shortly afterwards.
On CODE RED RIOT’s debut album, Corky played almost all the instruments himself (vocals, drums, bass and guitar), and recruited a fantastic unknown guitar slinger, named Tyler “Taz” Azure, to round out the album’s lead guitar work.
Unconcerned with the latest media-defined trends and fashions, their debut album is full of honest and earnest material, filled with heart, soul, blood, guts, angst and relentless passion. Look out for their album, to be released by Sony RED Music in early 2018!!!
