James Durbin has announced that he will release his new album, Riot On Sunset, on July 15th. Riot On Sunset is the first new music from James in over 2 years and will include his latest single, “Smackdown.”
“Smackdown” showcases James’ signature hard rock sound in a grand way with crunching guitar riffs and a truly epic drum beat. From the opening bass riff to the closing scream & all the debauchery in between, James Durbin is back & better than ever before.
The video for “Smackdown” has been making a serious impact since its release in April as it was selected for Loudwire’s Battle Royale competition where it currently occupies the #2 spot on their Top 10 countdown.

James is also excited to get back out on the road this summer with his new band to perform brand new material from Riot On Sunset for the first time. “We’ve been grinding away on this album for months now. It’s hard to believe it’s time to release it to the world on July 15. I feel like I’ve grown a lot in the studio and as an artist. I hope all the fans will enjoy what I have to say on the album as I have truly loved co-writing & co-producing Riot On Sunset.” says James.
In addition, James has re-branded his official website at www.jamesdurbinofficial.com.
