Electrifying, hip-shakin’ rock’n’roll with a psychedelic soul? Welcome aboard y’all! You’re with the high-flying Riflebirds.
The band’s unique upbeat guitar and keyboard driven sound – performed with passion and energy – has earned them a reputation as one of the finest acts around.
Featured on Double J, RRR and PBS, the band’s latest album ‘Keep It Together’ continues to attract high praise:
“The band have broken open this new chapter with confidence and catapulted right back into our music-loving hearts with Keep It Together… An album stuffed with anthemic rock ’n’ roll – the kind that would evoke a sway out of even the least rhythmically inclined… Riflebirds are a band at the peak of their creative and musical prowess…” Beat.
From Brunswick to Ballarat to Byron Bay, Riflebirds have played at some of the best-known live music venues and festivals in Australia. Festival appearances include Yackandandah Folk Festival, NightJar, Leaps & Bounds, Darebin Music Feast, Spring Fling and Ballarat Beer Festival – and you’ll often see Riflebirds on the bill at Melbourne’s legendary live venues such as The Labour In Vain, The Tote, The Union Brunswick and the Post Office Coburg.
Riflebirds have toured up and down the east coast and beyond, sharing stages with the likes of Ron Peno and the Superstitions, Davey Lane, Ash Naylor, Dallas Crane, Dan Brodie, Ben Salter and Freya Josephine Hollick.
‘Keep It Together’ follows three other highly acclaimed studio releases: ‘Ain’t Ever Going Home’ (2018), ‘World Feels Wide’ (2016) and the debut record ‘Detours & Collisions’ (2015).
