Rival Sons Finish Recording New Album

RIVAL SONS have finished recording and mixing their eagerly-anticipated new album in Nashville, Tennessee.

The as-yet untitled follow-up to the band’s 2011 breakthrough album, PRESSURE & TIME, was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer DAVE COBB and Grammy-winning engineer VANCE POWELL. The album is due to be released on Earache Records in late August.

RIVAL SONS guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY comments:

“We have officially completed and turned in our next full length record. We thought we might give ourselves a bit more time to work this time around, as opposed to the 20 days for Pressure & Time… BUT, it was even MORE crazy this time. Everything was finished in about the same amount of time (22 days), but this time we are giving much more music (a much longer record) – nearly twice that of P&T.

“Done in Nashville this time – amazing people, music, music scene, countryside, and some cool record shops. We re-enlisted our long-time producer and friend, Dave Cobb (Jamie Johnson, Secret Sisters, Shooter Jennings, and uh… Rival Sons), and this time we brought in the engineering and mix wizardry of one Mr. Vance Powell (Jack White, Dead Weather, Kings of Leon).

“Songs were once again written and recorded on the spot, allowing the listener to really peer in and catch a snapshot of the moment, and our immediate instincts. Most songs were captured in a few takes, not to mention plenty of first-takers. Pretty off the cuff and unadulterated. We have never had a wish to be predictable or sedentary with our music, and this record explores and supports that ethos pretty well. In other words, this record is not P&T, but delves into a bunch of other musical ideas and sounds. Much more of a ‘long-form’ record as a whole. Fist-pumpers, ass-shakers, foot-stompers, air guitaring/bassing/drummers, tear-jerkers, heart-string-pullers, and a few straight up freak outs. That’s all I’ll say for now. Due out late this August.”
