The Rifles Take Aim At America

(PR) London-based rock band The Rifles are set to release their N. American debut, GREAT ESCAPE, on September 15; the foursome will celebrate by bringing their rollicking live show to the US for a handful of tour dates staring September 22 in Philadelphia, PA (full list below).

The Rifles burst onto the UK music scene in 2006 with their rebellious and attitude-laden debut No Love Lost, an album revealing the hopes and dreams of working-class suburban drudgery. They spent the next two years touring relentlessly and building an enormous army of fans along the way, which includes some of the foursome's musical heroes like Paul Weller, Tim Lovejoy, Oasis and more.

It's now round two for The Rifles, and with some enormo-anthems, Great Escape is a soaring indie mission statement…an exhilarating sound of a band raising their game for a shot at the big time. With Jan 'Stan' Kybert (Weller, Oasis, Bjork) on production duties, singer Joel Stoker, guitarist Luke Crowther, bassist Rob Pyne, and drummer Grant Marsh have been guided to a place of musical maturity.

1. Science In Violence
