The Long Beach, CA quartet–Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Robin Everhart (bass), Mike Miley (drums)–will perform a special show tonight at The Echo in Los Angeles and then head north to San Francisco, Portland and Seattle before launching the Canadian tour in Vancouver (full itinerary below).
Reaching #1 on the Rock chart in 2012 in the U.K., HEAD DOWN has garnered RIVAL SONS critical acclaim (including a four-out-of-five star review from The Guardian/U.K.), the cover of Classic Rock magazine (U.K–cover below) and a “Breakthrough Artist” award at the 2012 Classic Rock Awards show in London. In the recent Jimmy Page cover story in Rolling Stone, David Fricke writes about Page’s affection for the group, saying, “[Jimmy] Page is fully engaged in current music; he enthuses about recent London shows he’s seen by Muse and a young American blues-rock combo, Rival Sons (12/6/12). RIVAL SONS also recently premiered their new music video for “Until The Sun Comes” on NME.com. The video, directed by Simon Gesrel–protégé of Academy Award-winning director Michel Gondry (White Stripes, Bjork)–can be seen here.
