The Rumble Strips were an English band from Tavistock, Devon. The band took their name from rumble strips, which are a series of small, continuous lines of bumps across a road with fast-moving traffic, to remind traffic to slow down in time for a roundabout. Having known each other since childhood, a precise conception date for the band doesn't really exist. The line-up remained the same throughout until they disbanded in 2009. The band were signed to Fallout Records, a subsidiary of Universal Island Records.
