The band will be appearing as special guests alongside Sir Tom Jones, where they will be talking about their upcoming new album, HEAD DOWN, and performing three acoustic tracks, including a brand new track titled “Jordan”.
The show will be available to listen to online afterwards at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01jxsjc
RIVAL SONS guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY comments:
“I’ve grown up on re-runs of the Old Grey Whistle Test… That show has been quite significant to my musical upbringing. It’s really one of the greatest musical programs EVER, in my opinion. I think about Humble Pie doing ‘Black Coffee’, The Faces doing ‘I’m Losing You’, and so, so, SO many more. These performances were better than the album versions, capturing rock ‘n’ roll at its most magical, and Bob Harris has kept up the tradition with his BBC radio show. So, it was a great honour to be invited down to his show, and chat, and to play a few tunes. We wanted to give him something special, so we performed a song off the new album (‘Jordan’) for the first time on his show. Bob was great to chat with, charming as ever, and totally kind to us. It’s fellas like Mr. Harris that’ve helped reveal some of the special magic of rock ‘n’ roll, and in hanging out with him, it felt like a great reminder of that magic.”RIVAL SONS have revealed the track titles that are set to appear on their highly anticipated forthcoming album, HEAD DOWN.
The follow-up to the band’s 2011 breakthrough album, PRESSURE & TIME, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with Grammy-nominated producer DAVE COBB (JAMIE JOHNSON, SHOOTER JENNINGS) and Grammy-winning engineer VANCE POWELL (JACK WHITE, THE WHITE STRIPES, KINGS OF LEON).
