The Rift releases album

The Rift announces release of their first full length album “2012” now available on iTunes – the album leads off with the well sewn up single “Sweet Affliction”.  The self described hard, dark and edgy rock band is reminiscent of other heavily guitar weighted bands such as 30 seconds to Mars, Story of The Year, and Avenged Sevenfold. 

The Rift’s uniqueness begins with 3 guitar players that use finger lights through all of their intricate fret work to make for a captivating live show and their chemistry where they feed off the energy of all of the band members collectively. There is no half way for these performers, they give it their all for every show.  They are also pros at engaging with their fans between songs which is just a few reasons why their fan base is growing exponentially.

They recently performed at The Viper Room, the LA Coliseum prior to the USC/Cal game, House of Blues (where the Band not only packed the Parrish room but received a standing ovation for an encore afterwards) and at the LA County Fair Battle of the Bands; all these gis kept the boys quite busy at the end of 2012. With those triumphs under their belt, the Band is going no holds barred in 2013.

Next, they are on to San Diego, CA playing Thursday January 24th at Queen Bee’s 3925 Ohio Street in San Diego, CA. The show starts at 6:30pm and is for all ages. Tickets are available to the show at Afton. Continuing on with a string of live shows: they perform a free show on January 31stat the Trip in Santa Monica,February 1st at the Airliner in Downtown Los Angeles at 9pm. The Airliner is located at 2419 No. Broadway L.A. 90031. There is a $10 cover and the show is 21 and over. To find out more information about the show, go to The Rift’s Facebookpage.  Invited back to perform again at the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. in L.A., on Friday, March 22nd, the Band will be unveiling their new line of merchandise at this show.  Keep your eyes open for more developments in the career of this raging rock band, The Rift!
