Melbourne’s own classic rock champions, Riff Raiders have just released their Double slab of pure rock n roll, with two killer videos to match!
Both songs rock in very different but equally thrilling ways. Loaded Gun, with its driving bass, rock riffage is rock like it used to be, without being nostalgic. Play it loud while screaming down the freeway!
Best Day Ever is a little faster, happier and with its catchy as hell vocals from Jenni, has a chorus that the Go Go’s would’ve killed for!
Marty Powell, the bands guitarist, producer and songwriter explains it best;
“There are two very different sounds of the band on show with these tracks. Loaded Gun has that classic kind of slide, classic rock sound to it, Best Day Ever has more of 90s kind of vibe to it… it is a bit more fun. We really wanted to show different sides of the band. It’s all rock, the title of the album pretty much explains that, so when you listen to the album you hear the different styles that influence me as a writer. It isn’t exactly re-inventing the wheel but putting on more wheels”
The band kick off their latest run of shows in support of the release on Friday!
