So far the reviews have been unanimous. The Soda Shop has proclaimed that Grifter "comes at you swinging like a heavyweight champion full of jabs and riff-a-licious uppercuts." Dangerdog promises that "Grifter delivers the goods: heavy, groove-laden rock," and Planet Fuzz simply announces that Grifter's self-titled debut "fires on all cylinders, full of hooky boogie rock. Sounding dirty and raucous, the perfect soundtrack to a night of debauchery."
Now's your chance to hear what all the fuss is about as Ripple Music has teamed up The Obelisk, one of the world's leading sites for oil-stained, heavy rock and roll, to host a sneak peak of the new Grifter single "Unwelcome Guest". That's right! Pop on over to The Obelisk right now, and get your taste of the full-throttle rawk and roll of Grifter's debut full-length and see why Metal Minute warns that "their booming cadence carries the subliminal wafts of diesel, garbage, used condoms and spilled booze."
Then prepare for the world-wide release of the Grifter self-titled CD on Tuesday, October 4th. Originally formed in 2003, Grifter has spent the better part of the last decade spreading their blues-based, riff heavy rock n’ roll message across the UK via live shows and a ton of physical and digital EP’s. Following their nitro-fueled contributions to the Ripple Music released Heavy Ripples Vol.1 double-7" rock bonanza, Grifter is ready to unleash their Harley revvin’ good time on a world-wide level!
And prepare yourself to catch the energy live, as Grifter rounds out the year performing throughout the south of England, and preparing for a tour of UK and parts of Europe. Maybe we'll even be so lucky as to find the boys hitting the states soon!
Available world-wide October 4th, but you can buy the album now at Ripple Music through the Ripple Music Store.
