The Luna Riot has high expectations, and why not? The band has epitomized the “do-it-yourself” work ethic by building their own recording studio and producing their own album. Band members Travis Smyth, Patrick Jacobson and Colin Band have finely crafted their own musical genre (which they affectionately call “Fuzzgaze”) by fusing thunderous tribal rhythms with thick, fuzzy bass and “machine-gun” lead guitar work and then colouring outside the lines with sitar, Tablas, tambourine, keyboards, shakers and whatever else could be found in the studio.
The Luna Riot was conceptualized by Travis Smyth in Victoria, BC following the demise of his successful previous band, Grace Nocturnal (which shared stages with Soundtrack of Our Lives, Sam Roberts, Metric, and Tegan & Sara to name a few). Smyth moved to Vancouver where he met Colin Band and Patrick Jacobson. Band had been playing drums with a local group called Vitus and Jacobson was already enjoying critical acclaim with The Capitals and The Top Drawers. Together, the trio spent the bulk of 2008 touring western Canada and writing dozens of songs before recording their debut album, "Night Steals The Light", at their own Deep Cove recording studio in North Vancouver, BC. Steven Drake (notable for co-fronting Vancouver’s Odds in the 90s and mixing The Tragically Hip’s Juno award winning album, “Trouble At The Henhouse”) mixed the songs at Profile Studios in Vancouver, BC.
