Band Description Rebuttal is Riboflavin’s latest release and represents a richer fuller sound! It was mixed by Jordon Silva who mixed Flogging Molly’s last album and he adds a new flavor to the band that we love! We’ve also included a couple of other crowd favorites!
Riboflavin is comprised of 4 friends from North County San Diego who have known each other since they were in 1st through 3rd grade. Julian Quezada, Brandon Taco Taylor and Christopher Ogle formed the band in May of 2012 to play for friends at house parties and really anywhere they could convince people to have them perform! They played covers by Megadeath, Green Day, etc. and originals that fit in the pop punk genre. Finding their identity in “pop punk”, they began playing larger venues and their audience and popularity grew. Now they were in need of pictures and were looking to find an avenue to record. In early 2014, they found an amazing young man, Steven Waggoner, who was invited to photograph the band and it just so happened that he was also an outstanding “shredder” guitarist and after sitting in with the band he was asked to join in May of 2014. This added musical depth to the group and Julian embarked on writing a slew of new songs. It was clear that magic was happening and it was time for the studio. It just so happened that Steven had the perfect solution, he was the owner of “Studio 458” in Escondido. The band quickly got to work on a six song EP that was completed and released in September 2014 and is available for listening and download on ReverbNation. They are currently back in the studio working on 5 exciting new songs. It’s clear that their writing and performing are taking it to the next level!
Their live performances are truly exhilarating and a must see experience.
