Two and a half years on, Music-News favourites The Rifles have announced the original line up are back working together and recording the band's fourth album.
The Rifles rose to fame and released their first two albums, 'No Love Lost' and 'The Great Escape' with the original line up consisting of Joel Stoker on lead vocals and guitar, Luke Crowther (Lead guitar), Rob Pyne (Bass) and Grant Marsh (Drums). In October 2010 Rob and Grant left the band and a third album, 'Freedom Run' was released.
The breaking news that the original band has reformed has been received with delight by their loyal following and hints at a return to the original London mod sound with which they burst on to the scene back in 2004. Music-News eagerly awaits hearing the new tracks and will update as and when more information is released
In the meantime, you can catch Joel and Luke touring The Rifles' acoustic set this spring. Dates can be found at http://www.therifles.net
