The National Rifle Keeps A Coke Beat For Almost Endless

     Philadelphia-area bands have been noticeably hot lately. Blossoming groups like Cheers Elephant, Shark Tape, Good Old War, and The Kalob Griffin Band have produced a trove of very good material over the last few months. If The National Rifle’s newest track, “Coke Beat,” is any indication of how good their forthcoming record Almost Endless, it is very likely that they will be the next name that are added to that list.
     A spacious track with an infectious big beat, the song contains elements of The Cure, Joy Division, and New Order while being filled with incredible catchy guitar hooks. The vocals of “Coke Beat” are the track’s final stroke of genius, as they serve as a perfect complement to The National Rifle’s arrangements.
      An album to watch by a band to truly look forward to, Almost Endless is slated for an undetermined release date later this year. The record will be the band’s first full-length album in a discography that includes four EP’s. The National Rifle are playing a pair of shows on Sunday, September 16th at the Chester County Restaurant Fest and the Rock and Read Festival.
