    They just toured here with a great UK band 'The Temperance Movement'.

    Can't believe I didn't get this band straightaway.

    I bought the deluxe edition of their first album (Pressure And Time) last Christmas, and it's amazing. Haven't bought Head Down yet, but I sure will. They are definitely my second favourite band nowadays, right after Airbourne.

    Check them out live, because they're EVEN better. I saw this video a few days ago, and I was completely amazed by their performance

    Just been watching this. Heads Down is a masterpiece. In terms of newish bands they are probably top of the heap.

    Jay's voice is untouchable.

    Jay is a killer frontman also. He's actually a FRONTMAN and his voice is top notch. A band with a GOOD frontman is so rare now-a-days. I'm gonna need to find one...

    P&T is actually their second album. Their debut was Before the Fire from 2009. P&T is my favourite of the 3 easily. It's very short, but a cracker. Live, so far I only caught them in 2011 supporting Judas Priest. Didn't think that much to them, but then it wasn't really their sort of crowd and it can't be easy being 1st on in a night of 3 bands.

    Better than Airbourne?

    If I just want to get drunk and behave badly then Airbourne probably win. But if you look at them as a band and their range then Airbourne can't really compete except at 'hard rocking'.

    Rival Sons are potentially a proper band. Not just the next best thing to AC/DC when they were great. I'm still not sure that Airborne will ever escape that shadow.

    So in English, yes they are better then. In your opinion of course :)

    Not sure I agree though with your rationale myself, as RS are clearly living in the equally large shadow of Led Zeppelin. A fact that isn't helped by their singer who clearly fancies himself as Robert Plant and Jim Morrison's love child when you see him live.

    Caught them live twice now, both as supports, one was to Black Stone Cherry can't remember the other one. I thought they were pretty shite, but then i never give support acts much attention unless they make my feet tap....whilst in the bar hic!
  8.  
    This track reminds me of The Stones, guitar riff wise:

    Tough question, Airbourne or Rival Sons...I don't think I can answer that yet. Maybe in 10 years

    As I have really only listened properly to Heads Down despite having bought all three albums as they came out I can only really comment on that one record. And I would say that that is one of the most varied rock and roll records I have heard in ages. On that record I felt the influence of The Doors (but only in the occasional feel rather than anything derivative), The Animals, Cream more of that kind of vibe than Zeppelin, there's the odd splash of the Stones, but these splashes tend to be on an odd track, never dominate, and then the next track is something else. More sixties than seventies but also bringing their own thing to it. Which means that they take you on a more varied journey than say Airbourne, it's hard to say better because I love the racket that Airbourne make. Different.

    Pressure and Time is really the only song I have heard by them that just screams Zeppelin and it's one favorite one.

    Take what I said back. Thanks Jem.

    I'm with Jem on this one...but with a touch less of the usual Jem hyperbole.
    For me Head Down is a step up from Pressure & Time, there are simply more better songs on HD.

    Have you seen this one?





    And while I think Wild Horses has been done to death, have a listen at the 4:45 mark.

    I'm still not overly taken with it. I hear too many influences in every song, to the point where it sounds like a multi-tribute album.
    Not denying they are a good band. Live, they are mustard, just the new album hasn't got me yet.
  17.  
    I want to like Rival Sons and they are undoubtedly a decent, competent band but I do find them slightly generic and dull. A bit like latter day Pearl Jam, it’s quality material that’s inarguably well written and produced but it lacks that spark of danger/originality/uniqueness. They feel like a sincere, well-meaning composite of better bands.
  18.  
    They're a decent band, but something is lacking to me. Saw them live once and that was also bland.

    Appreciate them for making pure music. It's a good listen. Although it's hard for any band these days to be truely original. It has of course all been done before. But it is still the best music around.

    I’m glad they’re around for sure.
    I wish Jack White would park his avant garde instincts and do a straight ahead rock n roll record - basically write Elephant 2 - we all know he has it in him but he’s a contrary bastard.

    I'm watching the documentary "It Might Get Loud". Jack is an intriguing fella. Some mystic around him like he doesn't belong in our current timespace. An overall great documentary by the way.

    Jack White is a genius. That doesn't mean everything he writes, sings or releases is gold, but he is playing in a completely different league than bands like Rival Sons or Greta Van Fleet. I actually really liked the Rival Sons when they put out Pressure & Time and I saw them in a small club in 2013 and they played an amazing gig. But I kinda felt they couldn't hold what they promised with that album. They still had a couple of good songs on each album afterwards but to me it lacked something. And I think I saw them live again about three years later and even live it wasn't the same: bass solo, drum solo, extendet guitar solos. It was actually a fucking bore fest.

    Need to watch that one again. Loved it when it first came out.

    I love Rival Sons. I am on their Facebook page. Lots of info from fans if you want to know more. They just released the new album Feral Roots. They have opened for AC/DC in the past.

    Pressure and Time/Head Down/Great Western Valkyrie/Feral Roots are the albums to check out.

    There are very few bands these days that I am willing to follow, and that I get excited about hearing new music from. Rival Sons is one of those few. I always look forward to their stuff.

    I have a hard time believing what Meanstreak said about them being bland live. Must have really been an off night. I saw them open for Sabbath and they were on fire. I am super pumped to see them headline this spring. I KNOW it's going to be a good show.

    And how can people not like Jay Buchanan's voice?! What an amazing singer. That right there raises them above the rest.

    I remember when the WS first came out and Jack White was going on about the lost arts of chivalry and furniture restoration - the NME did not know what to make of him AT ALL. I think he's just been told he's a genius so many times he's been - for want of a better word - hipster-fied. The world needs a fucking great rock n roll song so badly right not - I refuse to believe he doesn't have another Seven Nation Army or Hotel Yorba or Fell In Love With a Girl - in there somewhere. Because no-one else - at least in a rock n roll context - has come close to those songs this century, they are stone cold classics.
