Rival Sons share Eastern-tinged new single Look Away

Rival Sons

Rival Sons have released a stream of their new single titled Look Away.

It’s the latest song released from the band’s upcoming album Feral Roots, which is set to arrive this coming Friday (January 25) via Atlantic Records, and follows Do Your Worst, Back In The Woods and the title track from the follow-up to 2016’s Hollow Bones.

Speaking about the new record, vocalist Jay Buchanan tells Guitar.com: “Each one of these songs becomes a personal mantra for us. When you’ve had to repeat a song every goddamn night, when you next go in to record you think, ‘Write things that you are going to want to do every night!’ 

“Because if you write a bunch of negative shit, you’re going to be singing negative shit. Write about things that are going to make you feel good and that you can stand behind.”

Guitarist Scott Holiday adds: “We just have a really great feeling of where the band is, and where we are as writers and musicians and brothers in this group.

“We worked really hard and dug deep to give something to the people that they can enjoy. You’re still going to get your Rival Sons, but it’s Rival Sons-plus!”

The band are preparing to head out on tour across the UK and Europe, with the dates getting under way in Newcastle on January 31.
