RIVAL SONS have been presented with the "Breakthrough Artist" award at this year's Classic Rock Awards show in London, UK, following the recent release of their new album, HEAD DOWN, which landed in the national charts in ten countries.
Exactly four years to the day of their first ever show together, and only eighteen months since their first European show, RIVAL SONS have been recognised by the esteemed Classic Rock magazine for their meteoric rise to becoming this generation's hottest rock band.
RIVAL SONS guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY comments on the band's award:
"What a fun night... Billy Gibbons complimented my suit, and I met fellas like Nick Mason from Pink Floyd, Lemmy and Duff McKagan, not to mention making a good pal in one Mr. Vic Reeves (who presented our award in top style)! Thank you Classic Rock magazine - Breakthrough Artist, kick ass!"

The eighth annual Classic Rock "Roll of Honour" awards ceremony took place last night - Tuesday, 13th November - at the Roundhouse in Camden, London, welcoming around 500 musicians, industry figureheads and VIPs. The ceremony was hosted by former GUNS N' ROSES bassist DUFF MCKAGAN.
