Do You Have Your Tickets? Fall US & EU Tour Update
Hey all, how are ya? Are you back to school? Back to work? Well, we had a small summer break, about 3 weeks, from our rigorous Great Western Valkyrie tour schedule. We’ve all camped, surfed, spent time with our families and friends, and I believe our batteries are sufficiently recharged.
We enjoyed seeing you all this summer. We covered alot of miles – and I’m sure many of you were missed. I assure you we are doing everything we can to get to cities, states, countries and continents we haven’t been to yet. We appreciate your patience.
We enjoyed 4 weeks at number one on Canadian Rock radio with “Open My Eyes” earlier this summer. “OME” is still out in the US, and we’re getting more spins. Slowly but surely, we’re waking up America, thankfully and finally!
We’re back out next week, starting a west-coast to east-coast run. We’ll be doing everything from The Fillmore in San Francisco (bucket list: check!) to the Troubadour in Hollywood, all the way to Irving Plaza and Letterman in NYC (bucket list: check!). We have some big, big UK news about to be announced (hopefully, bucket list: check!) so stay tuned to our Twitter, Facebook and RivalSons.com for more!
Let’s not forget the Classic Rock Magazine Awards on November 4th! We’re honored to be up for Album of the Year, pretty surreal! Please help us out and VOTE HERE if you dig it. Then a few days later, we begin our long-awaited headlining tour of Europe, Scandanavia and the UK. We can’t wait!!
Thanks for staying tuned and staying active on our pages. Keep your eyes peeled for our mini documentary we’re releasing on YouTube called “Why Spotify is Good for the Artist” coming soon. Speaking of our friends at Spotify, we stopped to visit them in Stockholm and recorded acoustic versions of ‘Open My Eyes,’ ‘Electric Man’ and ‘Where I’ve Been’ – give them a listen HERE!
Keep on swinging!

Fan Reviews of ‘Great Western Valkyrie’
Fans from all over the globe have been telling us what they think of our new album ‘Great Western Valkyrie.’ We love to hear what you guys think and appreciate your support.
Here’s a look at the review from our first winner Anne R. from NYC:
“Great Western Valkyrie is the best album yet from Rival Sons. Jay Buchanan belts it out on “Secret,” establishing that he’s the most powerful singer in rock music today. “Open My Eyes” is destined to be a classic, with its throbbing riff complementing Buchanan’s soaring vocals, and “Where I’ve Been” and “Good Things” feature haunting lyrics about fate, trauma and love. What’s best about this album, though, is that each of the four can be clearly heard and they complement each other so well. Few, if any, other bands from the past 10 years have been able to assemble this level of talent.”
