Rival Sons Premiere “Do Your Worst” Music Video

Rival Sons have premiered a new video for their new song “Do Your Worst.” This track is from the band’s upcoming album, which is expected to be released early next year. Vocalist Jay Buchanan commented:

“Sometimes environment really shapes a song. Hunkered down in a threadbare shack deep in the south Tennessee woods, we (Scott and I) sweated it out and just wrote for a week straight. We were set out on an old causeway surrounded by neglected reservoirs and overgrown with shit you don’t want to see and yes; infested with all manner snakes. The song is a whiskey nightmare crawling with copperheads to me.”

Rival Sons Reveal Cover Art For New Album “Hollow Bones”

Rival Sons have announced that their new album will be titled “Hollow Bones.” The effort will be released later this year, and the cover art can be seen below:


Jay Buchanan said the following:

“Each record we’ve made has been part of a distillation toward revealing the band’s essence. This record, finally is the release of the unapologetic, wild beast that has long lived within the ribs of Rival Sons howling to be freed.”

Scott Holiday added the folliwing about the cover art, which is a piece called “Rainsong” by artist Martin Wittfooth:

“I discovered Martin Wittfooth about half way through making ‘Hollow Bones’. I was immediately drawn into his work. I loved his imagery with animals and felt it was calm and unnerving all at the same time. I also loved the touch of whimsy and beautiful psychedelic overtones he used. First time I saw his work I immediately felt it was right for this album. I won’t try to overly interpret the album cover or explain in detail why I believe it works perfectly with the album… but I can safely say I think this just might be my favourite cover of ours yet.”
