Los Angeles based Hard Rock band WE ARE THE RIOT (featuring Meegs Rascon & Mikal Cox of COAL CHAMBER and Andy Cole ex-STATIC-X) have released the official music video for their track "It's Not What You Wanted". The video, produced by Brian Cox at Digital Iris, was filmed at the Salton Sea near Palm Springs, California, and originally premiered on Loudwire. "It's Not What You Wanted" is the first release from the band's new EP (available now), and they will be heading into the studio this November to record a full length album.

WE ARE THE RIOT is a Los Angeles based rock band featuring COAL CHAMBER guitarist Meegs Rascon & drummer Mikal Cox. The band was formed initially by Rascon & long time friend Cheyne Fritts in 2010 in an effort to re-enter the music scene with a brand of rock that encompassed the raw emotion and energy of COAL CHAMBER, but with melody that could bridge a gap and capture a wide audience. This would be the first time that Rascon and Cox had played together since COAL CHAMBER disbanded in 2003.

Rascon built the band with musicians that he thought could deliver his dream with conviction, attitude and energy. It started with Cox on drums and was soon followed by Andy “The Kid” Cole on bass, who was the late replacement for Tony Campos in STATIC-X (now Wayne Static). The band launched in 2010 playing shows around the greater Los Angeles area, to initial rave reviews. The band took an indefinite hiatus in 2011 to allow for COAL CHAMBER & STATIC-X reunions/tours, and to find a permanent front man who could capture the audience’s ear and imagination.

WE ARE THE RIOT used the intermittent touring schedules as an opportunity to go back to the creative drawing board and write a record that far surpasses anything anyone has previously written, in addition to filling a perceived huge hole in the Rock scene. On October 21st, 2013 WE ARE THE RIOT, fronted by new singer Jimmy Trigger, re-launched themselves to a packed House Of Blues Hollywood. The overwhelmingly positive response from fans, friends and family reinforced the attitude that WE ARE THE RIOT are throwing down the challenge the industry, bands, and fans to step up and get Rock back to its Raw and Motley roots.

In April 2014 WE ARE THE RIOT released their debut EP The Hollywood Demo Sessions, a 3 song sampler. WATR celebrated the release by completing its first national tour as direct support for Wayne Static of STATIC-X (The Wisconsin Death Trip Tour - 15th Anniversary). The tour was an enormous success, with WATR barely leaving the crowd with energy for STATIC's set every single night. A full length release and additional tours to be announced in the Fall/Winter.
