Back in March of 2006 the Tripwire crew was first introduced to the Devonshire, UK based group Rumble Strips. With influences ranging from ska to indie pop, they quickly won us over and had us waiting for more. The band is coming back to the US later this month in support of their Alarm Clock EP, which is hitting stores on December 11 via Kanine Records. The upcoming batch of US performances marks their first official tour of the States, so make it a point to catch them if they happen to be stopping in your town.
