Known for Jay Buchanan's unparalleled voice, the band's fuzzed out riffs, and bold melodies, Rival Sons have built a large and loyal fanbase through relentless touring. Buchanan recently told Rolling Stone, "Having traveled so much and played with so many different bands, I've been able to see that there's a bridge between these subgenres," and the newly announced spring dates aim to further bridge that gap with the scorched blues of Reignwolf, the southern soul of The War and Treaty, and the unapologetic grit of JJ Wilde. In addition to the spring dates, Rival Sons are also set to perform at Gasparilla Music Festival in Tampa, FL (3/17) alongside Brandi Carlisle and Portugal. The Man, as well as at Panama City Beach, FL's Sandjam (4/24) with Weezer, White Reaper, and Strand of Oaks. Following the U.S. dates, Rival Sons will embark on a six-week European arena / stadium tour with Aerosmith [FULL ITINERARY BELOW].

2019 proved to be a breakout year for Rival Sons who cemented themselves at the forefront of rock and roll's revitalization movement with a pair of nominations at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards®. Rival Sons' acclaimed Low Country Sound / Atlantic Records debut, FERAL ROOTS, notched a nomination for "Best Rock Album," while their single "Too Bad" received a nomination for "Best Rock Performance." 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, Rival Sons' FERAL ROOTS is available now on all streaming platforms.

Rival Sons performed "Too Bad" earlier this year on The Late Late Show with James Corden, which Billboard applauded stating, "No fancy lights or screens, just cranked up greasy guitars, pounding drums and gargled glass vocals... with singer Jay Buchanan working the stage like he was preaching the rock gospel." Rolling Stone declared the performance "an impassioned rendition of the bluesy, garage-inspired anthem," adding "('Too Bad') has even more fervor live."

Comprised of Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Dave Beste (bass guitar), and Mike Miley (drums), Rival Sons firt heralded FERAL ROOTS with the release of lead single "Do Your Worst," which hit #1 at Rock Radio with. The album also features stand out singles "Shooting Stars," "Back In The Woods," and "Sugar On The Bone,"
