Ready, Aim, Fire! The Rifles Confirmed for our 2018 Festival
We’re pleased to announce our first confirmed act for LeeStock Music Festival 2018.
The Rifles are a five piece English indie rock band from Chingford, London. They formed during the early 2000’s and released their debut album in July 2006.
The band released their second album ‘The Great Escape’ on 26 January 2009, which peaked at 27 in the UK charts and reached the number 2 slot in the UK indie charts. Their fourth album ‘None The Wiser’ released in 2014, peaked at 21 in the UK album charts, their highest chart position to date.
In 2015, while touring on the re-release of ‘No Love Lost’ for the album’s 10 year anniversary, Joel Stoker stated the band were already writing songs for a 5th studio album. Several new songs were played live by the band on their early 2016 tour of the UK. The album ‘Big Life’ released in August 2016, once again made the top 40 in the UK charts.
This year the band has completed ‘The Rifles Unplugged Album’ recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios, and can be ordered on-line The Rifles Unplugged
We’re looking forward to welcoming them to Melford Hall in May 2018.
