Rival Sons announces Headline Dublin show at the Academy.
The quartet of Scott Holiday (guitar), Dave Beste (bass), Mike Miley (drums), and Jay Buchanan (vocals) captures that massively huge, guitar-driven classic rock sound, with rock-solid drumming and a riff-oriented approach to songwriting backing up Buchanan's soaring vocals.
Evoking the bluesy rock of bands like Led Zeppelin and the Black Crowes, California's Rival Sons emerged in 2012 as hard rock classicists with a modern edge thanks to their breakout second album Pressure & Time. Establishing a strong collaborative bond with Nashville producer Dave Cobb to helm each of their albums, the Long Beach band enjoyed success at home in the U.S. while becoming perennial chart staples throughout much of Europe thanks to releases like 2014's Great Western Valkyrie and 2016's Hollow Bones.
2019 saw the release of their most recent album Feral Roots. As Rival Sons' most artful and deliberately crafted album to date, Feral Roots finds the band pushing both buttons and boundaries to emerge with a greater focus and possession than ever before. "Rock 'n' Roll is a keystone in our cultural identity and you can see, hear, and feel it gathering speed everywhere you look. It's about to break wide open." says Holiday. With Feral Roots, Rival Sons have pushed the needle over the limit line in what is a clear call to arms and an unflinching return to form for both the genre and it's fans worldwide.
