Rig Time
RIG TIME! is an angry, caustic and vehemently heavy force on Innerstrength Records. Based in La Crosse, WI, the band has performed in over 33 states, and counting, since 2015. Holding true to the idea of "All Ages Or Nothing" the band has relentlessly toured across the US performing at only all ages events and resonating their substantial live sound while stressing the message that live music is for all. Deeply rooted in the DIY attitude, RIG TIME! is a determined and passionate ensemble with strong work ethic and a vital purpose.

Their full length album "War" was released on October 20, 2017 via Innerstrength Records, following the self released full-length Sick of It (2016) and two EP’s (2014’s Awful and 2015’s Devout). Featuring a sound that is the audio equivalent of a tank column entering a besieged city, the crunch and clangor of “War” is a game-changer. Forged in the fires of hardcore, sludge, and powerviolence, “War” epitomizes RIG TIME!‘s scorched-earth tactics and demonstrates the natural chemistry of the band.

Vocalist/Drummer, Bryan W. Fleming provides intensity and indignant passion to a wave of sullen and unrelenting guitar riffs, forcefully delivered by Rebecca Fleming with massive low end impact and ferocity.

“War” was recorded/mixed by Pete Grossman at Bricktop Recording in Chicago, IL (Weekend Nachos, Harm’s Way, etc). The album was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, OR.

RIG TIME! continues to tour consistently throughout each year, seeking new opportunities to perform as often as possible, developing a growing connection in each market they reach.
