The Rifles
The Rifles return with their long awaited and much anticipated third record Freedom Run, a new studio album that bristles with a newly found energy, confidence and maturity.

In conjunction with the release of Freedom Run, The Rifles kick-start a period of sustained live activity with a UK tour on 26th October.

26th October ' Cambridge Junction
27th October ' Norwich Arts Centre
28th October ' Stoke Sugarmill
29th October ' Nottingham Rescue Rooms
30th October ' Sheffield Foundry
1st November ' Manchester Academy 3
2nd November ' Leeds Cockpit
3rd November ' Newcastle O2 Academy

5th November ' Glasgow Garage
7th November ' Birmingham Academy

Recorded at Paul Weller's studio, Black Barn, and produced by the legendary Chris Potter (who has guided such luminaries as The Clash, The Stones and The Verve), the album has a fresh revitalized sound, loaded with inspirational tracks that range from the light and fun Phil Spector tinged pop symphonies through to the raucous soul-inflected heartfelt pop-rock that has dominated The Rifles' back catalogue and has given them a fan-base that continues to sell-out venues wherever they play.
