Leave It All Behind: Life After Riddlin Kids [Video]

Posted by: Jason Tate (04/03/13)
Someone else out there must remember Riddlin Kids, right? Back in the day they sold almost 300,000 copies of their albums and we posted about them quite a few times. Today I was clued into a new documentary called Leave it All Behind, which tells the story of a Dustin Stroud, the band's guitarist and songwriter. Dan played stadiums, traveled in a tour bus, performed on the late-night TV circuit -- then got dropped, went home and started all over again. Episode 1 of this documentary can be found in the replies.
Dustin’s story blew my mind. Here’s a guy who saw his band blow up overnight, then got dropped almost as fast, and he just keeps going,” said filmmaker Zack Starikov, who met Stroud in Austin while touring with his own band several years ago. “I want people to know for all the huge bands out there, and all the bands that will never be huge, there’s also this group in the middle — guys who have made it or almost made it, and keep going at it no matter what, because that’s just what they do.

Was completely stoked on this band back in the day. Always thought Riddlin' Kids was a stupid name, but they made some catchy tunes so it was hard to
Hate on their name . Hell, the days of Mest had many terrible band names.

I absolutely loved this band back in high school. Hurry up and wait was my go to. I recently discovered it on Rdio, one of those records that didn't hold up as much as I remembered haha.
