I'll be honest, I am skeptical of new bands these days. Like, a band needs to bring it for me to be impressed, and I think that is fair. So, I gave Rival Sons a shot, clicking around on YouTube a bit and I liked what I heard.
When I say the Rival Sons are new...I mean it. The band didn't form until 2008. The band has an EP called Before the Fire and a new, self-titled EP that came out last week. That self-titled EP is so impressive, I swear it is like listening to classic rock or something. Even better, the EP is like six bucks. So, give them a listen and let me know what you think.
