Three-song tour tape. “Withdraw” is the Rifle you know and love, melodic punk so scratchy, gruff and mud puddle moody it’ll blow your speakers. Then there’s a punked-up cover of Springsteen’s “I’m Goin’ Down” and an instrumental jam that sounds like the riff a band would play to get the audience’s attention before starting their set. Note: If Canadian Rifle comes to your town, call out some Springsteen songs. They did a whole set last Halloween.
