I caught up with Rival Sons Bass Player Dave Beste prior to Rival Sons gig at The Liquid Room in Edinburgh. This gig was one of a few shows around the UK in support and promotion of Rival Sons fourth full studio album “Great Western Valkyrie“, which was released in the UK on 9th June 2014.
The interview took place outside in the warm Edinburgh sunshine out the back of the venue just after the bands soundcheck. Dave talks about the new album itself, his time within the band, life outside touring and Walkers Sensations crisps!
The gig was a fantastic one itself. I had seen Rival Sons in Birmingham nearly a week earlier. For a full review of that gig please click on the link below. Just like the Birmingham gig, Edinburgh was a hot, vibrant and sweaty affair. The sell out venue was packed to the rafters and all were treated to a lot of the new album being played live, with some fan favourites thrown into the mix. The band received a fantastic reception, and all were treated to a warm, outstanding and intimate Rival Sons performance. Support was provided by Californian solo artist Jameson, and UK band Crystal Seagulls. The interview can be listened to via the play button on the media link directly below, with photographs from the Edinburgh gig below that.
