Rival Sons star in video for groove-filled track Too Bad

Rival Sons

Rival Sons have released a video for their new single Too Bad.

The song features on the US outfit’s latest studio album Feral Roots, which launched in January this year via Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records.

The Jordan Bellamy-directed video shows the band playing the groove-filled track live in an empty theatre.

Check it out below.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2016’s Hollow Bones, vocalist Jay Buchanan told 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.”

Rival Sons are currently on tour across North America and will return to Europe for further shows later this year.
