Great Western Valkyrie

Editors’ Notes

Opening with the plodding riffs of "Electric Man,” Great Western Valkyrie is the Rival Sons’ biggest and baddest studio effort, a no-holds-barred assault of ‘70s-influenced rock, swirling psychedelia, and overdriven guitars. Tunes like “Secret” and “Play the Fool” are inspired by the muscular, blues-driven bash of Zeppelin and Sabbath, while more solemn moments (“Rich and the Poor,” “Good Things”) are awash in psychedelic guitars and spacey reverb. Vocalist Jay Buchanan offers inspired songwriting and howling intensity throughout—matched at every turn by the fierce guitar work of Scott Holiday.

Glorious

June 10th, eh? That’s how long we have to wait to hear (in its entirety) what appears to be the best album by anyone in about 35 years? So be it..

Gents, it sounds as if you've hit the Jackpot. Slammin grooves, monster tones, great songs, killer vocals. World, take notice.

Never before did I think that a band could augur my very thoughts of what music should sound like. Every song is perfect in its own unique and simple way. I appreciate what you guys do and hope you continue to make music.

Unreal Rock N Roll !

Zepplin, Stones, Cream, Bad Company, Black Crows, AC/DC, Van Halen, take these groups put them in a blender, add water, put on high and you have Rival Sons ! Unreal, this is the group that America is been waiting for to save Rock N Roll.
So much energy, and power, with maybe the best vocals we’ve heard in 20 years. This group is ready to explode on the national scene! THIS IS ROCK MUSIC
