Rival Sons new album, video and tour!

Rival Sons new album ‘Great Western Valkyrie’ will be released June 9th in the UK.

In vocalist Jay Buchanan’s own words “We have one of the greatest rock’n’roll drummers and guitarists on the planet, so lets be a straight up rock’n’roll band”

Scott Holiday: “We have a reputation for recording our albums very quickly and keeping things very live – off the floor. This record is even more of a testament to that process. Once again, we wrote and recorded almost everything on the spot…but this time even more of what you hear on the album are our live takes…all playing together. In addition, there was very little overdubbing…Opting to keep the sound intact and very accurate as to deliver to the listener exactly what was happening in the room when we put it down.”

Jay Buchanan “Five records in, it just happens. The gestation period passes and you realize that you’ve chain-smoked and binge-drank your way through another pregnancy. How healthy will it be? Count: ten toes, ten fingers, vitals are stable and through grace it looks like you’ve skated by again. What makes this one different? Nothing or maybe everything. As it turns out, there was a false wall in the Rival Sons basement that concealed a vast collection of mystic literature. We burned it all.”

Great Western Valkyrie will be released June 6th in Europe, and June 9th in the UK on Earache Records
