Rival Sons Enter Studio

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.

I like the retro-vibe of this song (though occasionally it sounds a bit too close to Edmunds' version of "I Hear You Knocking"). A bit derivative. But, hey, I am often stuck in the past when it comes to music (as Metalboy! has pointed out on occasion). I wish them the best for what that is worth.

And I wish them . . . a better PR writer! Geesh. Hyperbole has its place. But "No young band made a bigger impact on rock and roll this past year"?!!? And "the best new rock band to come around in ages"?!!? And "one of the most lauded rock bands in the world"?!!? The accolades listed stand on their own. They are impressive. They just need to dial down the Mark Maytorena vibe a scootch. I think the PR guy (or gal) got into their free cases of Jeremiah Weed.

I hope I get a chance to catch them out my way.

Love, love, love this band. Lastest Album is top notch groovy and rocking, wish they would have supported it a little more and toured a bit more. Looking forward to the next one, if you get a chance check these guys out. Nice sound and energy

We've got the Cadillac, we're gonna drive right into the sun.
You're a tight piece of ass, but you know you're my only one.
We make the rules, and we both know what's got to be done.
So pull up your dress, I'm gonna show you how the west was won.


We've got tonight, we've got forever.
Let's get to work, because nobody does it better.
We're gonna swerve all around,
A-a-all over the road.


You've got the sandwiches packed, and my beer's sweating on the seat.
You've got your black dress on, with your high heels next to your feet.
I've got a big appetite, and you know a man has got to eat.
Well you love your candy, open up for something twice as sweet.

We've got tonight, we've got forever.
Let's get to work, because nobody does it better.
We're gonna swerve all around,
A-a-all over the road
