Alternative/Pop Duo The Fame Riot Announce Debut EP Entitled "Dust Funk"

Seattle based, alternative / pop duo THE FAME RIOT announced today the release of their debut EP entitled "DUST FUNK" on Tuesday October 13, 2015. This extended EP will feature nine original tacks, and was produced by Rob Daiker [Katy Perry]. The first single off the new record, "Heart Stray" will debut on iTunes on Tuesday September 22, 2015 and will also hit radio nationwide. THE FAME RIOT recently performed at Bumbershoot Festival over Labor Day weekend, sharing the stage with notable artists including: Ellie Goulding, Hozier, Social Distortion and Zedd.

The two brothers Liz Scarlett (19) and Shazam Watkins (21) formed THE FAME RIOT in 2012. Liz and Shazam began experimenting together, gathering their many inspirations from traveling worldwide with their mother and father. At a very early age Liz and Shazam had learned to inspire themselves by listening to anything they could get their hands on. While secular music was outlawed in their own home, the brothers recorded their favorite songs off the radio on to cassettes, and stashed records anywhere possible! Soon, something much more came to life. Together, the two brothers have created a unique soundscape that is on the forefront of a shift in musical style and culture, drawing influence from the last four decades of rock, pop, electronica, disco, and everything in-and-between.

Liz and Shazam on their upcoming EP: "DUST FUNK is just the beginning. The beginning of the beginning. The alpha conception of the eternal idea we intend on revealing. It is only a fragment of what we plan to unleash upon this world. Three years of strenuous effort, passionate depths, low lows, and high highs, and DUST FUNK is the result. It shall be a window for listeners to peer into, showing the infinite aspects to our philosophy, sonic sensualism, and visual chemical stimulation. It's taking all the old stories and telling them in a new way."

In addition to the EP, THE FAME RIOT is slated to release a music video for their single "Heart Stray" in early October 2015, and will soon announce their winter 2015-16 tour.
