Rival Sons announce 2019 European tour

Rival Sons

Rival Sons have announced a 26-date European tour.

The shows have been lined up following the release of their latest single Do Your Worst (opens in new tab) – their first new material since 2016’s Hollow Bones (opens in new tab).

The song is expected to appear on their as-yet-untitled upcoming album, which is pencilled in for a 2019 release.

The Nashville quartet are currently wrapping up what will be their sixth album, which was recorded at the RCA Studio A in Nashville and the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama with longtime collaborator Dave Cobb.

Speaking about the new song, vocalist Jay Buchanan says: “Sometimes environment really shapes a song. Hunkered down in a threadbare shack deep in the south Tennessee woods, Scott Holiday and I sweated it out and just wrote for a week straight. 

"We were set out on an old causeway surrounded by neglected reservoirs and overgrown with shit you don’t want to see and yes; infested with all manner snakes. The song is a whiskey nightmare crawling with copperheads to me.”

Further album details will be announced in due course. Watch this space.
