Spotlight: Rival Sons

With the recent release of their latest album, Feral Roots, Rival Sons will visit the GRAMMY Museum for an intimate conversation moderated by Scott Goldman, followed by a performance. As Rival Sons’ most artful and deliberately crafted album to date, Feral Roots finds the band pushing both buttons and boundaries to emerge with a greater focus and possession than ever before. Formed in Long Beach in 2008, Rival Sons put out their debut album Before the Fire in 2009 and made their breakthrough with 2011’s Pressure & Time then again in 2014 with Great Western Valkyrie, their entire catalog to date produced by Dave Cobb (the GRAMMY Award-winner known for his work with such artists as Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, John Prine, and Brandi Carlile). Over the years, the band has steadfastly forged their own singular path through the music industry, touring with legends like The Rolling Stones, Guns N Roses, Black Sabbath and AC/DC while introducing their thoughtfully hell-raising sensibilities into the rock & roll canon. With Feral Roots, Rival Sons have pushed the needle over the limit line in what is a clear call to arms and an unflinching return to form for both the genre of rock & roll and its fans worldwide.
