UPDATE (3/17/14): The White vinyl 2xLP ( /100) is now SOLD OUT.
The latest from Rival Sons is now available for pre-order, entitledÂ Great Western Valkyrie!
I’ll admit, I hadn’t heard of these guys prior to stumbling on this pre-order and having only heard this new single has me entirely sold. Having won Classic Rock’s 2012 “Breakthrough Artist” and charting across 10 territories throughout Europe with their last release,Â Head Down, we see Long Beach, CA’s Rival Sons returning with that ever consistent energy they’re so well known for.
Limited to only 100 copies on white vinyl,Â Great Western Valkyrie comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket w/ printed inner sleeves and an etched D side.
“This record the boys seem to have a fire in them! Â With (new bassist) Dave Beste in tow, we’ve never had this much time to make a record. Â During the previous albums, which were twenty days each, we had a room full of whiskey bottles at the end; this time, which is six weeks, there should be enough to fill a football field!” – Dave Cobb (Producer)
This awesome double white vinyl comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with full artwork and printed inner sleeves, and side D etched with the classic Rival Sons wings artwork! This white vinyl is limited to just 100 copies worldwide, and is strictly limited to ONE PER CUSTOMER!
Winners of Classic Rock's 2012 'Breakthrough Artist', Rival Sons, return with their stunning new album, "Great Western Valkyrie"! 2 years after charting in 10 territories across Europe with their album, "Head Down", Long Beach's finest are back with their highly anticipated fourth full-length album.
Following a string of European festival shows and a sold-out tour in the summer of 2013 and a tour with legendary rocker Sammy Hagar, the band once again entered LCS Studios in Nashville, TN, over the course of six weeks earlier this year to team up with Grammy Nominated, long-time producer Dave Cobb, who had this to say:
"This record the boys seem to have a fire in them! With (new bassist) Dave Beste in tow, we've never had this much time to make a record. During the previous albums, which were twenty days each, we had a room full of whiskey bottles at the end; this time, which is six weeks, there should be enough to fill a football field!"
The result is a magnificent, timeless album featuring Jay Buchanan's distinctive powerful vocals at their best, packed full of irresistable hooks and instantly memorable riffs, and brimming with the raw energy and passion that have made the band one of the hottest acts around. Forthcoming single, "Open My Eyes", is a wonderful introduction and sums up the entire album perfectly; a raucous blend of genuine soul, gutsy groove and their trademark sunshine-soaked blues-rock. The soundtrack to your summer of 2014 is here!
