RIVAL SONS New Album 'Head Down' Now Available on iTunes

Soulful, maximum-blues-infused hard rock band RIVAL SONS' new album HEAD DOWN is out now on Earache Records and has garnered the band both critical acclaim (including a four-out-of-five star review from The Guardian/U.K.) and a "Breakthrough Artist" award at this week's Classic Rock Awards show in London. Coming off of a five-week U.K./European headlining tour (having already played to massive crowds in Europe at festivals such as Rock Am Ring and Download, and opening for Guns N' Roses), RIVAL SONS look to 2013 to showcase the record here in the U.S. with North American tour dates to be announced soon and the physical album hitting stores January 22, 2013.

HEAD DOWN reached #1 on the Rock chart in the U.K. and "Keep on Swinging," the first single off HEAD DOWN, was featured in last week's USA Today's "The Playlist" column, seen HERE.

With their blues bravado, raw riffing and unmatched mystique, the Long Beach, CA quartet evoke the rock of legendary bands like Led Zeppelin. Formed in 2008, the quartet of Scott Holiday (guitar), Robin Everhart (bass), Mike Miley (drums), and Jay Buchanan (vocals) captures that massively huge, guitar-driven classic rock sound, with rock-solid drumming and a riff-oriented approach to songwriting backing up Buchanan's soaring vocals. The band wrote, recorded, and mixed HEAD DOWN in just 20 days, and the band conjured the same energy that made their last album a fan and critical favorite, while treading new territory altogether. The rawness and immediacy--textured with a myriad of light and shade--produce powerful results. Explains Buchanan: "In the code of the Samurai, any decision must be made between 3 and 5 breaths…Writing by that code forces us to act, go with our instincts and really, truly listen to each other. Creatively, you're bringing your most immediate instincts." The video for the first single "Keep On Swinging" from HEAD DOWN can be seen here
