Rival Sons drummer Michael Miley comments: "Hey y'all! It's SOO good to be home, back in sunny Los Angeles... Getting some much needed rest after the 'Pressure & Time' onslaught. We had so much fun this summer - and the last year as well - in Europe and UK.
"September 17 marks the new chapter for Rival Sons. SOO looking forward to playing the new material for ya's. Our autumn tour dates will be announced SOON. Thanks to all our awesome super fans. See you soon!"
Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday adds: "This last tour was definitely our most successful yet. All the headline shows were at capacity, support shows with kick-ass bands and the festivals were extremely great to us... Great slots, huge crowds, and got to connect and play with some of our favorite bands as well as meet a ton of new great ones. Making lots of new friends. We also got to play some unbelievable new places.
The whole tour was basically a complete onslaught of radicalness. Looking forward to coming back through to all these places in support of the new record this next year. People are always graciously telling us these amazing things like, 'you guys have made me believe rock 'n' roll isn't dead'... 'You guys are the future of rock 'n' roll' etc. But I can wholeheartedly say, the reaction we got from the crowd on this tour reinstated my firm belief that people really want, even NEED rock 'n' roll in their lives."
