Rival Sons have announced a European tour. The run of dates will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the band's breakthrough Pressure And Time album, and kicks off at the Punk IT Festival in Helsinki, Finland, on June 4. The tour wraps up at the Beauregard Music Festival in France on July 8, and also includes eight shows in The UK and Ireland.  

“To say we’ve missed touring the UK and Europe, our Fans… our friends and family across the pond, it would be a vast statement," says guitarist Scott Holiday. "We’ve missed you, and we are so incredibly happy to make our way back to you. 

"It feels appropriate to celebrate the Pressure And Time 10th anniversary with you all too, the folks who really put it on the map. We’ll play that album top to bottom for ya, and then play a handful of songs from the rest of our catalogue. It’s gonna be a real good time for all of us. We can’t wait for the long overdue reunion."

Rival Sons have been mixing their own US headline dates with support slots on the spring leg of Greta Van Fleet's Dreams In Gold tour, but after a short run of Michigan shows the remaining dates of the tour were postponed when GVF guitarist Jake Kiszka was hospitalised with pneumonia. Rival Sons will rejoin Greta Van Fleet for the Fall leg of the tour in August.
