Rivet is a riff-driven, no frills heavy rock band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band’s distinctive style/sound was created by their guitarist Mat Rile (MEDUSA, GRINDER, GROUND ZERO, S.O.S. , TRIP TRIGGER, etc). With Sleight (PSYCHO THRUST) raspy dirty-toned vocals & Mat`s grungy raw guitar tone - Rivet`s sound was born. Rivet has also recorded a 7 song CD featuring many of their best tunes. Now the band consists of two new members whom are: Sticky Stavinsky (ANESTHESIA, BLACK END ROOTS) on drums and Tom Bielek (EOE) on bass. Both of their unique style combined as a rhythm section adds a certain chemistry and a convincing "DEPTH" to the sound of Rivet.
Rivet delivers in everyway with catchy riffs, power, attitude and aggressive performance. Their music has a raw/pure sound that incorporates the influences of all the great bands from AC/DC, Soundgarden, Motorhead, Alice in Chains, Circus of Power, etc.
Rivet performed in many venues including the Key Club, Knitting Factory, Roxy, Viper Room, Whiskey a Go Go and the House of Blues on the Hollywood’s infamous Sunset Strip. They also opened for many national acts as well.
Rivet has been featured via media such as LA Weekly, Rock City News, Music Connection, and several cover features for All Access. They were also featured on the Adam Carolla radio show.
Rivet is now working on a new CD & will start performing all the LA venues. They are seeking management for Major Label.
