I have great news! Rival Sons, one of my favorite new bands, is entering the studio! The band will release a new album later this year - and I'll be seeing them at Rock on the Range in May!
Here's some new album details:
No young band made a bigger impact on rock and roll this past year than Los Angeles’ RIVAL SONS! The band signed to Earache Records in June and quickly churned out the incredible ‘Pressure & Time’, which created buzz throughout the globe as being the best new rock band to come around in ages, including being labeled as iTunes’ “Breakout Rock Artist of The Year”. The band also reached other highlights such as playing the SuperBowl ‘Salute to the Troops’ Kick-Off Party and performing across the world with acts such as Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, AC/DC and Evanescence, amongst others. RIVAL SONS also had the great pleasure of performing alongside Jeff Beck at the Classic Rock Awards (broadcast on Sky TV), where the band was also nominated for two awards.
Now, RIVAL SONS is back in the studio throughout February to record the follow-up to ‘Pressure & Time’, which is expected to surface later this year on Earache Records. The band is locked inside Honey Pye Studios in Nashville with GRAMMY-nominated producer Dave Cobb (Chris Cornell, Waylan Jennings, Jamey Johnson) who has produced all three previous releases from RIVAL SONS and GRAMMY-winning engineer Vance Powell (Jack White, Kings of Leon, Jimmy Buffett).
RIVAL SONS has quickly become one of the most lauded rock bands in the world and 2012 will see them further their hold as Rock ‘n’ Roll’s Saviors. More details to come soon regarding their new album and tour plans.
RIVAL SONS will perform at this year’s annual Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH from May 18 – 20 alongside Incubus, Rob Zombie, Shinedown, Marilyn Manson, Slash and more. The band has also been tapped to perform at this year’s Rocklahoma (May 25-27) and will soon be returning to the UK with Black Stone Cherry. This summer will see RIVAL SONS hit the major European festivals.
