RIVAL SONS - "Open My Eyes"
May 15, 2014, 5 years ago
Long Beach, California's Rival Sons have launched their new video for "Open My Eyes" below. The track is the first single off off of their new album, Great Western Valkyrie, which was recorded with producer Dave Cobb at LCS Studios in Nashville earlier this year, and is due to be released on June 6th in Europe, June 9th in the UK and June 10th in North America.
Frontman Jay Buchanan comments about Great Western Valkyrie: "Every time we set out to make a record, the experience ends up being some of the old and some of the new. Same studio, same town, same on-spot writing/recording process with the same guys. Actually, not the same guys; we have a new bass player in Dave Beste, and we had my buddy Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta, Jack White) throw down some craziness on keys while he was in town.
"My performance? I think it's more of the same on my end, but Cobb did tell me that my finest performances were given in these sessions, but what the fuck does he know? They say the truth is in the taste - I'd say this record is the filthy magazine hidden in the hymnal."
Great Western Valkyrie is available to pre-order now on digi-sleeve CD and limited edition coloured vinyl, as well as an ultra-limited box set including the following:
* Double LP on limited clear vinyl with etched fourth side
* Signed band photo insert
