Today Rival Sons announced their Pressure and Time tour and they will be making a stop at the historic Fillmore in downtown Detroit on October 16th. Tickets for all tour dates go on sale this Friday local time. The 2x GRAMMY-nominated group returns to the road in North America on the Pressure and Time Tour this fall. The six-week headline run will see the band celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2011 album, Pressure and Time, by performing the landmark long player live in its entirety. The tour kicks off on September 29th at Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and includes stops at legendary venues such as the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, the Riviera Theater in Chicago, The Warfield in San Francisco, The Wiltern in Los Angeles, and comes to a close on November 13th at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA [full itinerary below]. Most dates of the tour will feature support from Dorothy, with select dates supported by either Reignwolf or Myron Elkins. The official ticket pre-sale launches Wednesday July 21st at 10:00AM local time, while partner presales begin Thursday July 22nd at 10:00AM local time. General on-sale goes live Friday July 23rd at 10:00AM local time.
For the first time, Rival Sons will perform their critically acclaimed and cult favorite second full-length album, Pressure & Time, from top to bottom. Upon its arrival in 2011, Pressure and Time garnered the band worldwide recognition and has since amassed over 40 million-plus streams and garnered widespread praise with the BBC affirming it is “simply stuffed with rollicking tunes.”
Earlier this year, Rival Sons launched their very own label, Sacred Tongue Recordings, with distribution through Thirty Tigers. The band recently regained the master rights to several of their early releases and will reintroduce them to the world by first remastering their independent full-length debut LP, Before the Fire , and self-titled EP Rival Sons , on all DSPS, CD, and Vinyl – for the first time. Limited-edition vinyl variants are available for pre-order here. They’ve printed up an exclusive run of 1000 copies of both Before the Fire and Rival Sons. Before the Fire will come in an orange splatter variant, while the EP is available in a clear with gold splatter variant. There will also be indie retailer exclusive color-ways of each release in translucent orange and crystal clear, respectively. A repressing of Pressure and Time has not been announced but is expected in the coming months.
By looking back, Rival Sons also leap forward again as they continue working on more music and the follow-up to 2019’s FERAL ROOTS. FERAL ROOTS not only garnered a 2020 GRAMMY Award nomination in the category of “Best Rock Album,” but also yielded a GRAMMY nomination for “Best Rock Performance” for the top 10 rock track, “ TOO BAD,” and features the #1 rock radio single, “Do Your Worst.” Produced by multi GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, Rival Sons’ FERAL ROOTS is available now on all streaming platforms.
Since their emergence in 2009, Rival Sons have quietly reignited and recharged rock ‘n’ roll with towering vocals, uncompromising riffs, and thunderous grooves. Following the independent release of their full-length debut Before The Fire, they were handpicked to perform alongside everyone from AC/DC to Black Sabbath. Working with longtime producer Dave Cobb, the band delivered a series of critically acclaimed albums—Pressure & Time , Head Down , Great Western Valkyrie , and Hollow Bones —as they headlined sold out shows on multiple continents. 2019’s FERAL ROOTS broke new ground for the band.
“Do Your Worst” shot to #1 on Rock Radio as their first chart-topper at the format. It also scored 40 million-plus streams and counting. They delivered an electrifying performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden and earned acclaim from Billboard, Rolling Stone, and many more. FERAL ROOTS also gathered a 2020 GRAMMY Award nomination for “Best Rock Album,” while the single “Too Bad” notched a nomination for “Best Rock Performance.” 2021 saw Rival Sons present their own label Sacred Tongue Recordings distributed by Thirty Tigers. Through and through, they embody everything a modern rock band should be and so much more.
