Taking an enormous leap into the musical stratosphere with debut album Hex.lover.killer in April and fresh off their recent and well-received support slot with Los Angeles’ sexpots Deap Vally, Melbourne’s The Delta Riggs are proud to announce their latest single release 'America’ and an east coast tour with Sydney psyche-rockers The Walking Who.

The Delta Riggs have been enjoying a sharp upward spiral in perception, audience numbers and media coverage since the release of their album and ‘America’ follows closely in the footsteps of recent radio-hit and preceding single ‘Rah Rah Radio’. It’s much like a good pair of well-worn jeans for the rock quintet. Effortlessly comfortable in its execution and it sees the band at the top of their game, their most anthemic and having a hell of a lot of fun as only The Delta Riggs can.

Released simultaneously is the sinfully-sexy remix by Record Attempts (Michael Belsar from Hunting Grounds) that not only slows proceedings down to a Tame Impala-esque psychedelic groove, but also features a newly recorded saxophone solo by Sam Boon.

The America Single Tour traverses the east coast in September/October and is the meeting of two blistering live bands that will undoubtedly become one of the most talked about emerging and electric pairings this year.

"The hypnotic shake of 'America' is unforgettable... Hex.Lover.Killer is as captivating as Mick Jagger's codpiece." – Rolling Stone

"Could this be the album that saves Aussie rock? I hope so. The Delta Riggs have taken everything that is good about rock and roll and blended it into [Hex.Lover.Killer]" – Forte Magazine

“How can you ask for more from an album? A fantastic debut record” – The Au Review
