Following a recent sold out UK tour with BLACK STONE CHERRY and a successful headlining run through Europe, RIVAL SONS will be returning this summer for a number of festival appearances and headlining shows. The band have also been revealed as the headliners for “Rock the Queen”, a one-day event which takes place aboard the historic Queen Mary ship in Long Beach Harbour, California.
RIVAL SONS guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY comments:
“Much love and thanks goes out to our UK and European fans who’ve made our last tour a complete crazy badass success. We got to visit a bunch of new places on this one and were warmly welcomed every night, like we were with old friends. Pretty damn lovely.
“Now that we’re back home, we’ll be getting a little (very little) R&R, wrapping up all the details for our next record (due out late summer), and even adding a local show on the legendary Queen Mary! We’ll be headlining the Queen’s Salon, a really beautiful, old, haunted looking theatre on the ship. These local shows have become quite rare for us these days, so we wanted to make this one a special one.
“Lastly, as soon as we’ve now returned home, we’re already announcing our eminent return to the UK and Europe. More dates to come, but here’s what we’ve got thus far. Festival season is growing nearer and nearer still… And we’ll do as many as we can fit on our schedule.
Rock ‘n’ roll.
Rock ‘n’ roll who?
Rock ‘n’ roll is gonna punch you in the face this summer so you better pull up your pants and get ready.”
