The band offer the following statement: "Riot Act’s new album is a culmination of emotions over the past two years. From the excitement of our early rehearsals, to the loss of our band mate, struggling through a pandemic and not knowing if we were going to continue, the four of us knew that the band had much to offer. The result of that renewed energy is “Carry the Torch” and with joining forces with Global Rock Records we are ready for the world to hear this new music we have been working on for so long. The first of which, the new single “Wanted” was the first original track recorded when we decided to go forward. It captures the energy and drive of the band and our roots. A taste of things to come!" Our very good friends and brothers in in Riot V of course continue the more modern power metal evolution of Riot onward, While as Riot Act we aim to recapture the early Riot sound of the 1977-1983 band. Riot Act performed at the Heavy Metal Hall Of Fame in 2020 Rick and Lou were inducted as Riot members in 2018
