In short, here, Notability is Inherited. Because, on Wikipedia, it isn't. People who are associated with something famous catch some, albeit reflected, fame of their own. Wikipedia quite rightly points out that this fame is a lesser one, but then declares that this means they have no notability from this source. This means backing singers and voice actors do not get articles there. They should get articles somewhere.

Lost in the Riots are a four-piece instrumental post rock (WP) band hailing from Wikipedia:Watford, United Kingdom, a town famous for producing modern hardcore rock acts such as Gallows, Wikipedia:Lower Than Atlantis, and Wikipedia:Sikth.


The band formed in late 2010 after current guitarists James Cook and Adam Edwards had shown a mutual interest in each other’s previous musical projects.[1]

The quartet released their first EP titled Sinking Ships in October 2011,[2] with current drummer Andy Curd and bassist Robbie Parmenter joining the group.

The band went on to tour parts of the UK including a prestigious support slot with the critically acclaimed Wikipedia:math rock band Wikipedia:Tera Melos in Leicester,[3] as well as concerts in Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, London, Brighton, and Chichester.

In June 2012, the band embarked on a short tour across parts of Europe, playing in Wikipedia:Jena, Germany, as well as Paris, Bordeaux, Brussels, and Wikipedia:Leiden, Netherlands. The band has since toured Europe a further two times, reaching locations further afield including Wikipedia:Prague, Czech Republic, and Wikipedia:Copenhagen, Denmark.[4]

In February 2013, the band released their self-recorded and self-produced debut album Stranger in the Alps.

The record was later picked up by start-up Watford based music label Lonely Voyage who would then go on to co-finance and produce the band’s sophomore album Move On, Make Trails released in June 2014.[5]

The album contains the single Kong,[6] notable after British funnyman Wikipedia:John Cleese tweeted his support[7] for the track’s accompanying video, resulting in thousands of views.

The band showcased early material from their sophomore album at Wikipedia:Truck Festival in 2013, having been voted to play the festival’s main stage by festival goers.[8]

Rock musician Wikipedia:Andrew W.K would later invite the band to play Truck Festival in July 2014.[9]

Lost in the Riots will also make an appearance at the Wikipedia:Arctangent festival, Bristol in August 2014.[10]

Musical styleEdit

The band’s music is characterised by typical rock instrumentation whilst abandoning traditional song structuring, a typical characteristic of post rock music. The band has frequently been compared to notable Wikipedia:instrumental rock bands Wikipedia:And So I Watch You From Afar, Wikipedia:Maybeshewill, and Wikipedia:Explosions in the Sky.

Notably, the band differs from the crop of Wikipedia:hardcore rock, Wikipedia:punk rock, and Wikipedia:progressive metal bands that Watford has produced.
