Long Beach, California’s RIVAL SONS are currently winding up the UK leg of their European tour, and confirming their love for the UK have announced that they will be heading back in March and April 2015 which will see them headline the prestigious Roundhouse in London.
Tickets go on sale Thursday 18TH December 2014 at 10am. The band recently performed on Later With Jools Holland, following another TV appearance in the USA on the Late Show with David Letterman and a phenomenal performance at the star-studded Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards in LA. They also fitted in a last minute support slot with Lenny Kravitz at Wembley Arena.
With elements of psychedelia and more than a nod to soul the new Rival Sons album ‘Great Western Valkyrie’ received rave reviews when it was released earlier this year. It was rated the No.1 album of 2014 by Classic Rock magazine as well as hitting the Top 20 albums of the year in Kerrang magazine. This, their fifth record in as many years saw the band yet again recording live in Nashville, using 50’s gear borrowed from Sun studios , acknowledging their heritage, but always having their eyes and ears focussed on the 21st Century.
There will be a new RIVAL SONS single in January 2015. ‘Good Things’ is a stroll through the land of possibilities that highlights the soulful melodies of enigmatic singer Jay Buchanan, shows off the signature guitar tones of Scott Holiday whilst the powerhouse rhythm section of Michael Miley on drums and the sultry grooves of Dave Beste on bass pin the whole song down.
The tour dates shape up as follows:
Sat 28 Leeds Academy
Sun 29 Liverpool Academy
Mon 30 Glasgow Academy
Wed 1 London Roundhouse
Fri 3 Nottingham Rock City
Sat 4 Southampton, Guildhall
