FULL SCALE RIOT is a NY/NJ based hardcore band founded by TIM MC MURTRIE former original guitarist of the legendary band M.O.D. (METHOD OF DESTRUCTION 1987).
Full Scale Riot was formed back in 2006 by guitarist Tim McMurtrie and singer BJ Allen right when Tim was fresh from disbanding another one of his popular local rock and rap bands, Rhythm Trip. When Tim and BJ met through a mutual friend, they formed an instant musical bond and the initial concept for Full Scale Riot was born.
Through the years, Tim and BJ stayed in touch and with “the current state of our nation’s politics and world issues decided that it would be a good time to bring Full Scale Riot back. This time it’s all about aggression and getting back to the roots.” The new lineup consists of BJ on vocals, Big Tim on guitar, Jeff “F’N” Wood on bass and drummer Evan Rossiter. Full Scale Riot´s "Depopulation" (EP) is currently available on ITunes and Amazon. The band has been recently signed to Eulogy Recordings and it will be releasing a full length in September 2016.
