The Rifles – 2009 Tour Dates (3 NYC shows this week)

by Bill Pearis

DOWNLOAD: The Rifles – The Great Escape (MP3)


London band The Rifles are playing three shows in New York this weekend: an early show tonight (9/24) (before the Japandroids show in the same venue) and a late show tomorrow night (9/25) with Still Flyin at Mercury Lounge, then Saturday (9/26) at Union Hall with Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band who are playing with Japandroids tonight. The band have toured the U.S. previously opening for Paul Weller and last week saw the North American release of their sophomore album, The Great Escape. They’ve got a classic Britpop sound that might make you nostalgic for the good ol’ days of 2004 when everyone had jobs and Kaiser Chiefs, The Rakes, and Subways were all the rage. You can download The Great Escape‘s catchy title track at the top of this post. Videos and all Rifles tour dates are below….
