Californian blues-rockers RIVAL SONS are on the road for a number of Southern US shows.
RIVAL SONS are kicking off their string of Southern shows with a performance at Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama, this Saturday, May 21st. RIVAL SONS will be performing on the main stage along with such artists as FOO FIGHTERS, THE FLAMING LIPS, MOTORHEAD, PRIMUS and more.
RIVAL SONS drummer MICHAEL MILEY comments:
"Ya! We are on our way to Gulf Shores, Alabama, as we speak, for the Hangout Fest. It's been an adventure already, having locked our keys in the van (um, Scott) with a friendly young, able and willing Texan gentleman devising his own slim jim to "unlock" our vehicle after about 2 gallons of water spilling on our bed and electrical inverter, shorting it out.
"Last night we rolled up to the Mule in Fort Worth where Josh Weathers was playing (with whom we're playing next Thursday at Wild Rooster in Fort Worth) and had a beer or three. This run of southern dates is great cuz it allows us to obviously connect with our southern fans but also to prepare for the crazy European summer we have ahead of us. With the new album coming out as well and the single/video for 'Pressure and Time', we have a lot on our plates but we're so pumped for European invasion and loving the loads of support we're getting from Earache and our team at home. We can't do this alone!"
