RIVAL SONS SHARE NEW SONG “LOOK AWAY”

NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR GETS UNDERWAY APRIL 4TH IN DALLAS, TX

ANNOUNCED FOR BONNAROO MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL

Rival Sons have shared “Look Away,” the fourth new track to be released from their widely anticipated Low Country Sound / Atlantic Records debut LP, FERAL ROOTS. “Look Away” – which is available now at all DSPs – unfolds in a scorching social commentary over a soaring guitar anthem. Furthermore, “Look Away” is currently serving as the sonic backdrop for PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Unleash the Beast series, airing on CBS and CBS Sports Network.

Rival Sons are set to celebrate FERAL ROOTS with their first-ever full North American headline tour. The dates begin April 4th at Dallas, TX’s Trees and include stops at New York’s Brooklyn Steel, Philadelphia’s Union Transfer and Los Angeles’ Henry Fonda Theatre. Support on all US headline dates comes from The Sheepdogs. Following the North American headline run Rival Sons will head to Manchester, TN for the 2019 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival where they will perform on Friday, June 14th. For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.rivalsons.com.

Produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, FERAL ROOTS arrives everywhere on January 25th via Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records; the album is available for pre-order HERE. Exclusive pre-order bundles are also available via www.rivalsons.com, including limited edition vinyl and autographed lithographs of the album’s cover art, painted by renowned contemporary artist Martin Wittfooth. All pre-orders are joined by an instant grat download of “Look Away” along with the recently released album tracks, “Do Your Worst,” “Back In The Woods,” and “Feral Roots.”

FERAL ROOTS was first heralded this fall with the release of “Do Your Worst,” hailed by Rolling Stone as “a relentless rocker with a gritty verse spearheaded by a sinister lead guitar riff and thumping drums. The track takes a deft turn when it hits the chorus, forgoing out-and-out guitar bombast for rousing gang vocals with singer Jay Buchanan leading the charge.” “Do Your Worst” is joined by an official music video that shows Rival Sons at their onstage best, alongside behind-the-scenes footage and a performance filmed at the aforementioned Studio A.

“Back In The Woods” made its debut by way of Consequence of Sound, which declared it to be “a rootsy rock track, with (Rival Sons) not only taking us ‘Back In The Woods’ but also back in time to big classic rock sounds of the ’60s and ’70s.” “Feral Roots,” the sprawling title track arrived alongside an official visualizer, shot by Rival Sons’ vocalist Jay Buchanan and Steven Bradley in the woods of Franklin, TN. The visualizer premiered with Billboard alongside an exclusive interview with Buchanan who detailed the track and the group’s forthcoming album.

Buchanan commented on Rival Sons’ forthcoming LP, “The primal intensity of FERAL ROOTS reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album. With its nuanced explorations of both the wild and domestic struggles of love and truth, FERAL ROOTS ultimately argues for pushing beyond pure survival instincts and striving for something more exalted: to reclaim a long diluted genre through a galvanizing return to form.”
