Ra Ra Riot will start their latest USA tour. The band that started in 2006 at Syracuse University have had a rough journey to get where they are today. Having lost drummer and songwriter John Pike, one of the founding members last year due to drowning and survived a gruelling tour many new bands don't, they have succeeded in emerging as a stronger band that is innovate and youthful with a sound of their own.

Though some think that the nautical, gloomy sound is related to the death of John Pike the band dispute this. Their recent album The Rhumb Line shows they have a positive outlook on the darker side of life.
