Californian blues-rockers RIVAL SONS have revealed the track listing for their forthcoming new album, PRESSURE & TIME.
RIVAL SONS have been hailed by Classic Rock magazine as "ones to watch" in 2011 and recently headlined a show in London, England as part of HMV's Next Big Thing tour. Following a four week stint on the road, the band wrote, recorded and mixed the new album in just 20 days, ensuring a rawness for both the listener and the band.
RIVAL SONS frontman JAY BUCHANAN explains:
"In the code of the Samurai, any decision must be made between three and five breaths... Writing by that code forces us to act, go with our instincts and really, truly listen to each other. Creatively, you're bringing your most immediate instincts."
Guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY adds:
"This is just the simplest way to not cheat ourselves or the listener. Rock and roll can't be over-thought, and if it is, it loses its immediacy and instinct... It needs to be a knife FIGHT, not a knife DANCE."
The track list for PRESSURE & TIME is as follows:
01. All Over the Road
02. Young Love
03. Pressure and Time
04. Only One
05. Get Mine
06. Burn Down Los Angeles
07. Save Me
08. Gypsy Heart
09. White Noise
10. Face of Light
RIVAL SONS will be joining JUDAS PRIEST and QUEENSRYCHE for a full UK tour later this year, and have also confirmed a number of festival appearances, including a mainstage slot at High Voltage festival in London.
