ANNOUNCED FOR BONNAROO MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL

Rival Sons - Main Pub 2018 - Jimmy Fontaine

J Rival Sons have released their acclaimed new album FERAL ROOTS, available today at all DSPs and www.rivalsons.com.  Produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, FERAL ROOTS marks Rival Sons’ debut release for Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records.

“In all its mood and style, FERAL ROOTS exudes a delicious instrumental blend of rock,” declared Consequence of Sound, while Glide Magazine affirmed, “Rival Sons clearly brought their A game with (FERALROOTS,” adding Rival Sons are “an obvious choice as a challenger for today’s greatest rock and roll band.”

FERAL ROOTS features the Top 10 rock hit “Do Your Worst,” which the band’s own Jay Buchanan and Scott Holiday recently stripped back in an acoustic session at PASTE Studios.  Additional album highlights include “Too Bad,” “Feral Roots,” and “Look Away” which is currently serving as the sonic backdrop for PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Unleash the Beast series, airing on CBS and CBS Sports Network.

Rival Sons will celebrate FERAL ROOTS with their first-ever full North American headline tour. The dates begin April 4th at Dallas, TX’s Trees and include stops at New York’s Brooklyn Steel, Philadelphia’s Union Transfer, and end with a sold-out performance at Los Angeles’ Henry Fonda Theatre.  Support on all US headline dates comes from The Sheepdogs. Following the North American headline run Rival Sons will head to Manchester, TN for the 2019 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival where they will perform on Friday, June 14th.

FERAL ROOTS was first heralded this fall with the release of “Do Your Worst,” hailed by Rolling Stone as “a relentless rocker with a gritty verse spearheaded by a sinister lead guitar riff and thumping drums. The track takes a deft turn when it hits the chorus, forgoing out-and-out guitar bombast for rousing gang vocals with singer Jay Buchanan leading the charge.”  “Do Your Worst” is joined by an official music video that shows Rival Sons at their onstage best, alongside behind-the-scenes footage and a performance filmed at the aforementioned Studio A.

Back In The Woods” made its debut by way of Consequence of Sound, which declared it to be “a rootsy rock track, with (Rival Sons) not only taking us ‘Back In The Woods’ but also back in time to big classic rock sounds of the ’60s and ’70s.”  “Feral Roots,” the sprawling title track arrived alongside an official visualizer, shot by Rival Sons’ vocalist Jay Buchanan and Steven Bradley in the woods of Franklin, TN.  The visualizer premiered with Billboard alongside an exclusive interview with Buchanan who detailed the track and the group’s forthcoming album.  

Rival Sons’ bio states: The primal intensity of FERAL ROOTS reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album, pushing beyond pure survival instinct with hope for something more exalted: to reclaim a long-diluted genre with a galvanizing return to form.

Rival Sons are: Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Dave Beste (bass guitar), and Mike Miley (drums).
