After last year’s release of Big Life, Indie veterans The Rifles today announce the release of The Rifles Unplugged Album: Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, due for release 28th April 2017.
The new album was recorded in the historic Abbey Road Studios, London in just the one take in early January 2017. This stripped down album features Joel Stoker & Luke Crowther accompanied in the studio by Deano Mumford on keys along with a string quartet and 30 piece fan Choir adding vocals to 3 tracks on the album.
We had a fantastic day at Abbey Road & have wanted to nail some recordings of our songs acoustically with strings for a long time, and feel this album has really raised the bar, can’t wait for people to hear it!
