We’re hitting the road today to see all our buddies east (and a little west) of the Mississippi. We’ll also be making new friends at Daytrotter Studios in Rock Island Illinois. They plan to record our performance there for their website and will also be streaming the performance LIVE online. You can listen this Saturday 4/27 at 12 noon right here: http://www.daytrotter.com/#!/live/ Make sure to also keep up with us on Twitter and Facebook while we journey into the great beyond. We’ll see you soon.
We are proud to share some great feedback we have received on the most recent reviews of our new album, Almost Endless. Stay tuned for more features and reviews of The National Rifle and be sure to purchase a copy of Almost Endlesshere.
“The National Rifle’s Almost Endlessis the sweet, sugary nectar to the bees of the masses; it’s high time to drink it up.” – Thrill of it All (read full review here).
“If I have to explain how I feel about Almost Endless it would be like when you make a new friend, you don’t know much about him/her but you feel comfortable around them and you are excited to get to know more in the future.” – Everything on Wax (read full review here).
“Whether it is the free-flowing electronic parts that emanate from Stancato’s keyboards on “Glass Line,” the synthpop of “Almost Endless” or the post-punk of “Young In The Future,” Almost Endlessreflects The National Rifle’s multi-faceted repertoire.” – Long After Dark (read full review here).
