Lets celebrate the the release of the new record together! > “I’ve been practicing the new material and I’m fired up to test the waters and rock faces, in proper Rival Sons fashion! And if you don’t see your town on there, don’t worry, we have big plans for the fall, or Autumn as y’all call it. Back to work. I can speak for all of us when I say we’ve missed you, and we’re so ready to re-invade the British Isles.“
