Ra Ra Riot
Ra Ra Riot
Combining indie rock songwriting with chamber pop flourishes (courtesy of a small string section), Ra Ra Riot formed while the band's six members were attending college in Syracuse, NY. Members Milo Bonacci (guitar), Alexandra Lawn (cello), Wesley Miles (keyboard/vocals), John Pike (drums), Mathieu Santos (bass), and Rebecca Zeller (violin) first came together in January 2006, creating an eclectic sound that allowed them to play alongside the Horrors, Bow Wow Wow, and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin within a year of the band's formation. After pulling up stakes and relocating to New York City, the band recorded a self-titled EP and prepared to release it during the summer of 2007. That June, however, Pike died after disappearing one night from a party following a show in Providence, RI. His body was later found in nearby Buzzard's Bay. Several weeks later, the mourning bandmates issued a statement confirming their continuation as a band. Ra Ra Riot joined the roster at V2 Records later that year before switching their American operations to Barsuk Records, which signed the group in May 2008. Released by V2 in Europe and Barsuk in the U.S., The Rhumb Line marked the band's full-length debut in August 2008. - Andrew Leahey & Kenyon Hopkin, All Music Guide

Ton Taun
Ton Taun is an alternative rock band from Lancaster, Pa. The four members of Ton Taun finished their debut album, Circus Court, at After 7 Recording Studios in Mechanicsburg, Pa. just about two years ago. They just finished their second record, Exporter, only a few months ago. You can find both of Ton Taun's albums for purchase on iTunes, CD Baby, through the band members themselves, or from Mr. Suit Records in Lancaster, Pa. Ton Taun is unsigned at the moment, but is open to discuss a record deal if anyone is interested (we're talking to you, Merge, Sub Pop, Anti-, etc.). All four members of Ton Taun are full-time students; one member attending the prestigious Berklee of College of Music in Boston, Ma, one studying English at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa, one attending Drexel University in Philadelphia, and the last attending Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA.
