We've been following Ra Ra Riot for a while now here on The Tripwire, and we're pleased to announce that the Syracuse-based band has officially signed to Barsuk Records. After recording their debut album with producer Ryan Hadlock (The Gossip, Blonde Redhead, Islands) back in late 2007, it will finally see the light of day. We can expect to see The Rhumb Line to hit stores on August 19. For our friends overseas, V2 will be releasing the album later this fall.
Ra Ra Riot has three summer shows remaining on their itinerary, so catch them while you can.
06.14.08 - Denver, CO (Westword Music Festival)
07.06.08 - Milwaukee, WI (Summerfest)
07.26.08 - Chicago, IL (Wicker Park Festival)
