There’s a lot missing from today’s generation of rock & roll bands: groove, soul, and swagger; but most importantly – honesty and danger. Without these elements, or “ways of life,” music loses its edge and its ability to move people. Luckily for the music and personalities of California’s Rival Sons, they have not abandoned this ethos.
Rival Sons is a raucous, maximum-blues-infused, hard rock band, who explode with the rhythm and roughness of some of the greatest rock acts of all time. From a self-released full-length album (Before the Fire) and EP (self-titled), to the strength of their live ... Lire la suite

There’s a lot missing from today’s generation of rock & roll bands: groove, soul, and swagger; but most importantly – honesty and danger. Without these elements, or “ways of life,” music loses its edge and its ability to move people. Luckily for the music and personalities of California’s Rival Sons, they have not abandoned this ethos.
Rival Sons is a raucous, maximum-blues-infused, hard rock band, who explode with the rhythm and roughness of some of the greatest rock acts of all time. From a self-released full-length album (Before the Fire) and EP (self-titled), to the strength of their live performances, the band gains major attention everywhere they play. Recent accolades include a stint opening up for legends like AC/DC and Alice Cooper, several USO shows with Kid Rrock, and a televised performance, center track, in the pit, at The Indianapolis 500, the world’s largest sporting event. The Huffington Post even dubbed Rival Sons as “one of the top 5 bands to watch” during 2010’s CMJ Music Marathon in New York City.
Despite the achievements and rabid following, Rival Sons have already attained on their own accord, any member of the band will say creating quality music and leaving a lasting impression is what matters most. Lead Vocalist Jay Buchanan, guitarist Scott Holiday, bassist Robin Everhart, and drummer Mike Miley, pride themselves on being the sum of their parts. They were brought together by a love of music, both common and uncommon influences. More importantly, they came together to bring the current state of rock and roll back to it’s finest elements (see opening statement). Their artistic chemistry is true. In their own words, they “want to give the people the rock and roll they deserve by keeping it honest, visceral, and dangerous”.
It’s that heart, the independent and fighting spirit of Rival Sons, which brought the band to Earache Records fall of 2010. “There was just the right amount of audacity and bending of the rules for us to dig the idea of being on a [traditionally] death metal label.” Says guitarist, Scott Holiday.
Rival Sons’ full length Earache debut, just recorded in Los Angeles, will be released worldwide in May 2011. On this record, the band has committed themselves to creating an experience that closely matches the attitude and excitement of one of their live performances. Right off of a 4 week stint on the road, Rival Sons wrote, recorded, and mixed the album in just 20 days; this ensures a rawness for both the listener and the band. Explains frontman, Jay 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.” This method of writing, is not new to Rival Sons.
Proven fruitful, this method was originally used while creating Before The Fire. As Holiday puts it, “This is just the simplest way to not cheat ourselves or the listener. Rock and Roll can’t be over-thought, and if it is, it loses it’s immediacy and instinct … it needs to be a knife fight, not a knife dance.”
Groove, soul, swagger and danger are the ethe by which the Rival Sons live and breath. They claim to have sworn an oath to keep the process and their performance to nothing less than honest. Their music sums up a time when Rock made more than a “viral buzz”. Rival Sons harken back to when the thrill of rock and roll truly made a difference … And that time has been resurrected.

En 2007 à Los Angeles (Californie), le guitariste Scott Holliday cherche à former un groupe de hard rock tendance blues rock avec le batteur Mike Miley. Ils recrutent d'abord le bassiste Robin Everhart et après quelques essais retiennent le chanteur Jay Buchanan, jusqu'alors spécialisé dans le folk. Rival Sons est né début 2008 et commence illico à enregistrer un premier album auto-produit. Before the Fire voit le jour en 2009 et est distribué exclusivement en format numérique. C'est toutefois suffisant pour que Rival Sons soit convié à faire les premières parties de quelques gloires du hard rock telles Alice Cooper et AC/DC. Les titres « Tell Me Something » et « I Want More » figurent eux dans des spots publicitaires télévisés.

Rival Sons est signé en 2010 par le label anglo-américain Earache Records, spécialisé dans le metal. L'Ep Rival Sons sort en 2011, bientôt suivi par l'album Pressure & Time. Pressure & Time est bien accueilli en Grande-Bretagne où Rival Sons commence à se faire un nom. Le groupe place également les titres « Pressure and Time » et « Face of Light » dans les charts rock et alternatif canadiens. iTunes retient pour sa part Rival Sons comme l'un des groupes à suivre de 2011. Après avoir ouvert pour Judas Priest et Evanescence, Rival Sons s'embarque pour sa première tournée britannique et européenne.

Les Angelenos enregistrent ensuite leur deuxième album pour Earache Records à Nashville (Tennessee) avec le producteur Dave Cobb. Au programme de Head Down qui sort en septembre 2012, figurent du rock hard, du blues, quelques joliesses folk, un véritable condensé de rock classique tel qu'il se pratiquait dans les années mil-neuf-cent-soixante et mil-neuf-cent-soixante-dix. Le disque est un succès un peu partout dans le monde et dépasse la sphère des seuls nostalgiques. Rival Sons tourne durant 2013 en première partie de Kiss ou Sammy Hagar.

Great Western Valkyrie est enregistré à Nashville (Tennessee) avec le fidèle Dave Cobb et sort mondialement en juin 2014. Copyright 2014 Music Story François Alvarez
