About RIVAL SONS:
Rival Sons are a raucous, maximum-blues-infused, hard rock band which explodes with the rhythm and roughness of some of the greatest rock acts of all time. From a self-released full-length album Before the Fireand EP (self-titled), to the strength of their live performances, the band gain major attention everywhere they play. Early accolades included a stint opening up for Legends like AC/DC and Alice Cooper, several USO shows with Kid Rock, and a televised performance in The Pit at The Indianapolis 500. The Huffington Post even dubbed Rival Sons as "one of the top 5 bands to watch" during 2010's CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. RIVAL SONS' full-length Earache debut, Pressure & Time, was recorded in Los Angeles and released Worldwide in May 2011. The record quickly charted in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland and beyond. And by the time Rival Sons embarked on their first full length headline tour of Europe in November 2011 they'd sold out every UK show, as well as gigs across the continent. The album was voted No.2 Album of the Year by Classic Rock Magazine. In 2012, they released Head Down, achieving greater success and acclaim.
