Recorded at Paul Weller’s studio, Black Barn, and produced by the legendary Chris Potter (who has guided such luminaries as The Clash, The Stones and The Verve), the album has a fresh revitalized sound, loaded with inspirational tracks that range from the light and fun Phil Spector tinged pop symphonies through to the raucous soul-inflected heartfelt pop-rock that has dominated The Rifles’ back catalogue and has given them a fan-base that continues to sell-out venues wherever they play.????
Freedom Run further enhances the reputation of one of the most exciting, enduring and diverse London bands of the last ten years. The Rifles have proudly proven to both fans and critics that they’re not only here to stay, but are destined to achieve greatness.????
