Head Down is their latest release. Recorded in Nashville with producer Dave Cobb (Jamie Johnson, Shooter Jennings) and engineer Vance Powell (The White Stripes, Kings of Leon). Head Down takes the band’s electrifying blend of Led Zeppelin, Free, The Doors and a many others to exhilarating new heights.
Rival Sons really possess the secret magic ingredient to mix the classic hard rock and progressive blues of the 60s and 70s, genuine soul and a dusty groove. Head Down really covers half a century of classic rock and is much more sprawling than their previous album, which had a more straighter approach.
Jay Buchannan’s vocals dance around Scott Holiday’s blues spiked riffs, Robin Everhart’s basslines adds the landscape of soul. Mike Miley drumming is adding the ground in a amazing way.
Head Down is a brilliant album, just go but it!
The band that really put their retro-rock name on the map, constantly touring has created a large fan base, gigs are set up on larger and larger places every time and is almost always sold out. A band that I have seen 3-4 times already and I am amazed every time by their presence and emotion they are spreading at a gig. Their live appearance is insanely good and the guys are so in tune with each other that you get goose bumps. I await their upcoming gig with excitement. That the boys then are super nice private is a nice bonus!
