RIVAL SONS Announce European Tour

Californian blues rockers RIVAL SONS have confirmed dates for a European headlining tour in support of their forthcoming album, "Head Down", which is due to be released on September 17 via Earache Records. The trek kicks off on September 21 with nine shows in the U.K. before moving on to continental Europe. It follows a massively successful run through Europe earlier this summer, where the band performed numerous headlining club shows and huge rock festivals, as well as shows with the likes of GUNS N' ROSES and EVANESCENCE.

Commented RIVAL SONS guitarist Scott Holiday: "This last tour was definitely our most successful yet. All the headline shows were at capacity, support shows with kick-ass bands and the festivals were extremely great to us... Great slots, huge crowds, and got to connect and play with some of our favorite bands as well as meet a ton of new great ones. Making lots of new friends. We also got to play some unbelievable new places. The whole tour was basically a complete onslaught of radicalness. Looking forward to coming back through to all these places in support of the new record this next year.

"People are always graciously telling us these amazing things like, 'you guys have made me believe rock 'n' roll isn't dead'... 'You guys are the future of rock 'n' roll' etc. But I can wholeheartedly say, the reaction we got from the crowd on this tour reinstated my firm belief that people really want, even NEED rock 'n' roll in their lives."
