Pitched somewhere between the loose revivalism of Jack White and the groove of Alabama Shakes, Rival Sons is a rock band from Long Beach, California. Rival Sons formed in 2009 after guitarist Scott Holiday found Jay Buchanan while searching on MySpace for a singer.
In 2009, Rival Sons released their debut album, Before the Fire, which earned them critical acclaim. In November 2009, Jack Riviera of the Huffington Post declared them "a rock band to watch." Following the acclaim of their debut, Rival Sons performed as a supporting act for bands including AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, and Kid Rock.
The band is known for extensive touring and their notable album release Pressure & Time. They are signed to Low Country Sound, an imprint of Elektra run by Dave Cobb. On January 25, 2019, Rival Sons released their sixth studio album, Feral Roots.
Feral Roots was nominated for Best Rock Album in the 62nd Grammy Awards, and their song "Too Bad" was nominated for Best Rock Performance that same year.
