About

Prolific Melbourne five-piece Riflebirds have had a mammoth 12 months, bringing their rock, southern and psychedelic sounds to a slew of festivals and bars across the land.

Two albums in as many years was followed up by a new single earlier this year, ‘Plastic Rock’n’Roller’, which had You Am I’s Davey Lane along for the ride, supporting at the launch party.

The albums – ‘World Feels Wide’ (2016) and ‘Detours & Collisions’ (2015) – have led the band to play at venues across Australia and seen them share stages with the likes of Ron Peno (Died Pretty), Dallas Crane, Dan Brodie, Ben Salter and Freya Josephine Hollick. Recent festivals appearances include Spring Fling, Leaps & Bounds, and Ballarat Beer Festival. The band are booked to play Darebin Music Feast in October and NightJar Festival in Geelong in January.

“Cracks the whip from the get-go” Bel Ryan, Beat Magazine.

“Melbourne five-piece indie-rock band Riflebirds have broken from the cage of the pub scene and taken flight across the festival circuit, adding Ballarat Beer Festival to their path! These guys have released two full-length albums in the last two years, and they’re on the up and up, having toured Australia’s east coast and played at some of Melbourne’s best-known live music venues.” Ballarat Beer Festival.

“Riflebirds produced a set that was one for the ages. A grand display” Ridge Town Music Festival.

“Riflebirds have made a name for themselves at some of Melbourne’s most popular venues. Be sure to check it out.” Chris Bright, Beat Magazine
