Californian blues-rockers RIVAL SONS have confirmed a European headlining tour, which is due to kick off on November 4th in Nottingham, UK.

The band played a highly-successful string of European festival dates earlier this year, followed by a UK tour with heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST and QUEENSRYCHE.  Now, following a US tour with EVANESCENCE, the band will be returning to Europe for their first headlining tour.

RIVAL SONS guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY comments:

"After one month's return to the States, we could no longer take it, being away from our fans in Europe.  So we are elated to be getting back out to them this November.  Besides getting back to some of our favorite countries and cities, this tour will also give us the chance to introduce ourselves to a bunch of new places, like Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Finland, Estonia, Vienna and more!  Hopefully everyone over there is ready for a full-on, rock 'n' roll, smack-in-the-face, kick-in-the-pants assault...  Because that is what we aim to deliver.

"As for the fans we are returning to - we know they're ready; it's gonna be a blast.  This'll be the last Rival Sons tour for 2011!  Let's send the year out proper, and remind people that rock 'n' roll is far from dead!"
