About Us

Our Story


The Riot Police are an Indie Pop Rock band formed in Ottawa, Canada, by Alex Boyd in 2007. The band is composed of Alex Boyd, Max Gibson, and Taylor Harris.  Drawing early influences from acts like Coldplay, Kings of Leon and The Killers, their sound has developed into strong anthemic Pop Rock songs.

As the band continues to grow, their instrumentation and melodic planning only gets better and better, but what sets them apart from the rest is their vocal performances. Lead singer Alex Boyd grew up singing in the acclaimed Christ Church Cathedral's men and boys choir, and participated in tours of England, and France. 

When it comes to The Riot Police, there is more to them than meets the eye. They may shout Pop Rock, but their lyricism and themes are much more intricate than what you'd expect from their songs.
