Back with their fourth studio album, The Rifles are due to release None The Wiser on January 27 via Cooking Vinyl.
None The Wiser finds the four-piece on fine form, and marks yet another raising of the bar, with brilliantly-crafted classic rock, plus an added dose of folk, Americana, a strong pop sensibility and highly-deft songwriting skills.
The album was recorded by the newly reformed original line up of Joel Stoker (vocals, guitar), Lucas Crowther (guitar, vocals), Robert Pyne (drums) and Grant Marsh (bass), who will also be touring throughout November as well as this spring. Tickets are available via the bands website.
