Hot on the heels of their acclaimed debut single Live Like You Mean It (Aug 2017) Melbourne hard rock outfit Riff Raiders release the second single from their forthcoming album. D-GAF is 2 minutes 47 seconds of punchy, crunchy, guitar-smashing, snare-smacking rock that will have you hitting the repeat button more than once.
The album – Live Like You Mean It – dropping next week, Wednesday November 8 – is produced by guitarist and principal songwriter Marty Powell and Gavin Parker (Brown Hornet, Napalm Records), and features 11 tracks of riff-laden, melody-driven rock. Proper. Actual. Rock.
The title track and debut single received great reviews after being premiered by Melbourne’s Beat magazine (“Riff Raiders have dropped some classic Aussie Rock that’d make Bon Scott smile”) – the video has been viewed over 78,000 times on Facebook alone and the song continues to receive airplay across traditional and digital radio in Australia and in the US, UK and Europe.
“With Live Like You Mean It, the Riff Raiders have delivered a stirring love letter to rock ’n’ roll, a fist-in-the-air anthem that’s alive on arrival. This line says it all: ‘If rock ’n’ roll is dead then why’s this song stuck in your head?’” — Jeff Jenkins, The Music/3RRR radio
“The first single from the album, Live Like You Mean It sees frontwoman Jenny lead the charge atop a solid old-school rock groove. The gods of Aussie rock would be proud.” — Hysteria magazine 16/8/17
